HNewsWire-CNN loves to host entire hours devoted to a "WHITE HOUSE IN CRISIS" and touting their latest poll on Trump's unpopularity. On Thursday, they pushed out Anthony Scaramucci insisting "MORALE IS AT AN ALL-TIME LOW." But maybe CNN should wonder if the screen ought to read "CNN IN CRISIS?" Where is their morale when they look at the ratings? Mark Joyella at Forbes reports on the latest monthly ratings:
CNN had significant declines in February, with ratings dropping 19% in total day and 16% in prime, where the network returned an average audience of 979,000 total viewers -- behind MSNBC (1.805 million) and Fox News (2.766 million).
MSNBC has now beaten CNN in prime for 12 consecutive months among viewers 25-54 and 15 consecutive months among all viewers.
By contrast, Fox News host Sean Hannity topped the ratings list again (for the fifth month in a row) with an average audience of 3.3 million viewers. Tucker Carlson came in second with 3.144 million, and MSNBC's Rachel Maddow came in third. "In the advertiser-coveted demographic of viewers 25-54, Hannity led (711,000) followed by Carlson (650,000) and Maddow (641,000)." Fox News had four of the top five cable-news shows with The Ingraham Angle in fourth and Special Report with Bret Baier in fifth.
Overall, Fox News had fifteen of the top 20 cable-news shows. The other five were on MSNBC. CNN didn't show up until Anderson Cooper 360 at number 24.
In the morning wars, Fox & Friends came in at #15 with 1.376 million viewers, Morning Joe was #25 averaging 983,000 viewers, and CNN's New Day -- keep looking down the list, and down -- came in at #42 with 553,000.
CNN gushes every hour over which Trump administration official is going to leave next, but no one seems to be wondering which CNN host needs to be dumped for low ratings.
StevieRay Hansen Video Commentary
While Fox News and MSNBC are more or less holding steady this week when compared to the full month of May last year, the far-left CNN is already in a total ratings freefall by 20 percent and more.
With three weeks of May still remaining, the Stormy Daniels Network might be able to mount (if you’ll pardon the expression) a comeback, but as of right now the month is looking like it could be a serious humiliation for CNN—and not just in total viewers but the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demo, as well.
During primetime hours throughout May of last year, CNN averaged 1.12 million total viewers and 399,000 demo viewers.
During the first week of May this year, CNN averaged just 859,000 total viewers and 286,000 demo viewers, which represents a jaw-dropping collapse of 23 percent and 29 percent, respectively.
By comparison, year-over-year in primetime, Fox News is up 5 percent in total viewers (2.24 million compared to 2.359 million) and experience only a 1 percent drop in the demo (453K compared to 448K).
MSNBC enjoyed a 4 percent increase in total viewers (1.69 million compared to 1.755 million) and a 16 percent drop in the demo (417K compared to 352K).
So, during primetime last week, CNN was only able to attract to attract an average of 859,000 total viewers compared to 1.755 million for MSNBC and 2.359 million for Fox.
In other words, MSNBC is nearly doubling CNN’s total primetime viewers while Fox News is nearly tripling CNN.
Total Day Viewers
Throughout May of last year, CNN averaged 821,000 total day viewers and 274,000 total day viewers in the 25-54 demo.
During the first week of May this year, CNN’s total day viewers have collapsed to an average of just 649,000. Demo viewers during the total day fell to just 205,000. That is a freefall of 21 percent and 25 percent, respectively.
By comparison, year-over-year in total day, Fox News held steady with a drop of only about 1 percent (1.42 million compared to 1.358 million) in total viewers and a 10 percent drop in demo viewers (302K compared to 272k).
MSNBC’s total day viewers jumped 4 percent (925K to 960K) with only a 4 percent drop in the demo (221K compared to 205K).
Any objective examination of these numbers can only deliver one conclusion: CNN is hemorrhaging a massive chunk of its already small audience. Moreover, the problem is not a lack of news. If that were the issue, Fox and MSNBC would also be shredding total viewers as opposed to holding steady and even gaining in some areas.
Obviously, CNN’s massive credibility problems are coming home to roost. “CNN” has become synonymous with “fake news” over the last year, and for very good reason. No one can trust anything reported by CNN, and why should they?
Last month I sat in a waiting room with close to a dozen strangers from every imaginable walk of life. When someone suggested putting some news on waiting room TV, one lady said, “As long as it’s not CNN,” and the whole room burst out laughing.
CNN is widely seen as a joke in America, something that will take years for the anti-Trump channel to shake if it ever decides to stop with the wildly partisan and dishonest hysterics.
What’s more, the network has pretty much turned itself over to porn star Stormy Daniels and her fake news-spreading attorney. A porn star and her ambulance chaser have become CNN’s assignment editors to the point of absurdity.
