Posted on 05/01/2012 8:01:46 PM PDT by iowamark
Its no April Fools joke last month CNN delivered its lowest-rated month in total day in over a decade, since August 2001, the month before the September 11 attacks. The once-dominant cable news network posted decade-lows among both total viewers (357,000) and Adults 25-54 (108,000). Versus April last year, CNN was down 21% in total viewers and 29% in 25-54. In comparison, leader Fox News was up 2% in total viewers (1.1 million) and 1% in 25-54 (273,000) and No.2 MSNBC was flat in total viewers (425,000) and down 5% in 25-54 (139,000).
Things did not look brighter for CNN in the evening where its shows again posted across-the-board declines: John King USA at 6 PM was down 41% in the 25-54 demo, Erin Burnett Outfront at 7 PM was down 34%, Piers Morgan was down 14% at 9PM, and Anderson Cooper 360 was down 8% at 8 PM and 28% at 10PM. In primetime, CNN had its lowest rated month in nearly two years, since August 2010 in both total viewers (508,000, down 16% from last year) and adults 25-54 (149,000, down 22%). Meanwhile FNC (1.9 million, 395,000 in 25-54) was flat in total viewers from last April and down 9% in 25-54, MSNBC (754,000; 236,000) was down 5% and 9%, respectively.
If your cable news channel is so incompetent that you get 1/3 of viewers to tune out from watching this hottie, it is time to turn out the lights. Your done.
Same here. I saw Fox going sideways years ago. I have no need for TV at all. Almost all the old movies I like are on DVD. Even TCM found a way to bring the lefty “flavor” to the programming. The so-called “educational” channels do it too. (Those channels-History, etc-love to bash Christianity). They had to ruin everything.
Still, this is good news.
CNN, sucks to be you.
Mr C4E and I can do you one better. We gave up TV about 1-2 years ago. Don’t miss it.
Think of how low their ratings would be if they weren’t on in every teacher’s lounge in America.
I bought a dish a few months ago and really enjoy it.
A dish that I could have bought three years ago had only CNN and BBC for news, so I refused to have it.
Gsat came along and gives me FOX and NO CNN or BBC.
I admit, however, that FOX does not interest me so much, as I am sick of all the news out of the USSA.
90 percent of my viewing is Movies, Natl. Geo., and History.
The neo-Marxist call FOX, faux news.
I have no idea why, as they have plenty of leftist shilling
I guess they are just not as Marxist as CNN.
It is interesting to see the ratings, with FOX outdoing CNN over 3 to 1.
“... total viewers (357,000) and Adults 25-54 (108,000).”
WOW those are incredibly crappy numbers. Makes you wonder...if supporting this dirtbag worth committing suicide over?
Yeah, but the thing is that she thinks she’s all it. Acts a lot like the late Jessica Simpson (when she was a live NBC broadcaster).
On the very infrequent times I watch any of those channels I notice CNN has better ads than FOX - and FOX had 3x’s the viewers? go figure...
I get my news here at Free Republic
Ah, that’d be Jessica Savage. Sorry, I’ve got babes on the mind.
I watched a PBS show this evening about the killing of Osama. Some of the intelligence gathered from bin Laden's compound showed al Queida was p*ssed Olbermann was fired at MS-NBC. LOL
Cover the news like a commie, go broke like a commie.
I certainly did my part.
When there “Unbiased Political Coverage” Panel consists of 5 Known Democrat Party Operatives, three of them known Obama Journo-listers, what do they expect.
Outright Propaganda is only effective for so long, then people begin to realize it, or tune it out.
“Makes you wonder...if supporting this dirtbag worth committing suicide over?”
The LARGELY GAY community inside of CNn Center would probably say yes....
It’s not THEIR money, after all.
There's simply no reason to watch them other than if you have no ipecac syrup handy and you need to induce vomiting quickly. But, even then, MSNBC works even better for that need.
