CNN has not done well in the age of Trump. Their ratings have never been great but in 2018, they were downright abysmal. And they show no signs of wanting to change direction.
John Nolte reports at Breitbart:
2018 Delivers Another Humiliating Ratings Year for CNN
Far-left CNN had another terrible ratings year in 2018.
Numbers supplied by a Fox News end-of-year press release show that CNN, a 24/7 anti-Trump cable channel, not only came in last place when compared to its competition at Fox and MSNBC, it came in far last place.
Below is how the three cable news networks averaged through all of last year, specifically, from January 1, 2018 through December 9 2018, and how those same numbers compare to last year.
Primetime: Total Viewers and Viewers in the 25-54 Age Range:
FNC: 2,475,000 (up 3%); 475,000 A25-54 (down 2%)
CNN: 990,000 (down 6%); 326,000 A25-54 (down 11%)
MSNBC: 1,807,000 (up 12%); 355,000 A25-54 (down 3%)
Total Day Viewers:
FNC: 1,441,000 (down 4%); 287,000 A25-54 (down 10%)
CNN: 704,000 (down 9%); 215,000 A25-54 (down 16%)
MSNBC: 991,000 (up 12%); 198,000 A25-54 (down 2%)
There are a number of things notable about CNN’s abysmal primetime showing in 2018. To begin with, during a banner news year that included a midterm election, the network still failed to average a million total viewers.
Secondly, MSNBC nearly doubled CNN’s total viewers, and Fox News nearly tripled the fake news network.
What would it take for CNN to drop their anti-Trump 24/7 programming? How many more people have to tune them out before they get the message?
