CNN’s Brian Stelter is already struggling with his network’s sagging ratings but things just got even worse for him.
He recently went on vacation and his ratings went up while he was gone.
That’s not supposed to happen.
FOX News reports:
CNN’s Brian Stelter returns from vacation to host lowest-rated ‘Reliable Sources’ of year
CNN’s struggling media program “Reliable Sources” with Brian Stelter hit another low on Sunday with its smallest audience of 2021 as the liberal program has now failed to crack the one-million viewer plateau for five consecutive weeks.
Stelter’s program averaged only 810,000 total viewers and a dismal 163,000 among the key demographic of adults age 25-54 on May 2, for its worst performance of the year in both categories.
To make matters worse for Stelter, his own show performed better last week when replacement host John Avlon filled in. The Avlon-hosted edition of “Reliable Sources” on April 25 averaged 907,000 for nearly a 100,000-viewer increase over Stelter’s return.
Avlon also topped Stelter’s most recent episode in the key demo, averaging 182,000 viewers among the group coveted by advertisers.
Hopefully, Brian had a nice break from the show.

What an embarrassing turn of events.

Couldn't happen to a bigger tater. He's just a parody now.

America is on a low-carb diet and that means a hard pass on potatoes.

If Brian wants his ratings to keep going up, maybe he should take more time off.
Just a thought.
