Now that New York governor Andrew Cuomo has finally resigned, there has been some additional fallout for the Cuomo family.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo is losing legions of female viewers.
It’s not difficult to understand why this is happening. Chris played an active role in defending his brother from sexual harassment allegations.
FOX News reports:
CNN has another Cuomo problem as female viewers turn off ‘Cuomo Prime Time’ in droves
CNN has long been the only major cable news network without a female primetime host and now the troubled network is having a hard time getting women to tune in.
CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” with embattled namesake Chris Cuomo shed significant female viewers following the bombshell report by New York Attorney General Letitia James that declared he advised his brother on how to fend off sexual harassment allegations…
“Cuomo Prime Time” averaged 488,000 female viewers on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday last week – the three episodes hosted by Chris Cuomo following the Tuesday attorney general report, as he took Friday off.
The turnout was a 41% decline from the year-to-date female viewership of “Cuomo Prime Time,” while the program also lost 45% percent of female viewers compared to the same week in 2020. “Cuomo Prime Time” also lost 14% of the female viewers who tuned in during the second quarter of 2021.
CNN’s troubled anchor also lost significant female viewers among the advertiser demographic of adults age 25-54. “Cuomo Prime Time” averaged 86,000 female viewers among the key demo during the three episodes hosted by the program’s namesake last week, down 33% compared to the second quarter totals and down a stunning 56% compared to the 2021 average.
Cuomo is currently on ‘vacation’ from CNN and was seen dancing in a cringeworthy video:

He might as well have a good time now.
His days at CNN may be numbered.
