CNN’s 4th Quarter Primetime Viewership Collapses 73% to Just 642K

CNN’s 4th quarter primetime viewership dropped by an astonishing 73% to just 642,000 viewers on average.

TV Newser reported:

The network averaged 492,000 total viewers across the 24-hour day time period (total day) in Q4 ’21, which places it at No. 6 on basic cable. The 492,000 is -18% from what the network averaged in Q3 ’21 and -67% from the Q4 of ’20. CNN also averaged 642,000 total viewers in primetime, placing it at No. 16. The 642,000 average is -22% from Q3 ’21, and -73% from Q4 of ’20, which had been a phenomenal quarter for the network featuring a presidential election campaign.

Compared to quarter four of last year, Fox News lost only 21 percent of its total day viewers and 37 percent of total primetime viewers.

MSNBC lost 53 percent of its total day viewers and 53 percent of its total primetime viewers.

After all, there was a presidential election in the fourth quarter of last year. However, CNN’s collapse to 67%(!) of total daytime viewers and 73%(!) of primetime viewers is nothing short of glorious. CNN stinks, and their slow demise brings me great joy.

The raw numbers clearly confirm CNN’s recent struggles:

Q4 TOTAL DAY: TOTAL VIEWERS/25-54 AGE DEMO VIEWERS

  • Fox News: 1.444 million / 237,000
  • MSNBC: 672,000 / 77,000
  • CNN: 492,000 / 103,00

Q4 PRIMETIME: TOTAL VIEWERS/25-54 AGE DEMO VIEWERS

  • Fox News: 2.366 million / 366,000
  • MSNBC: 1.163 million / 138,000
  • CNN: 642,000 / 138,000

Compared to quarter four of last year, Fox News lost only 21 percent of its total day viewers and 37 percent of total primetime viewers.

MSNBC lost 53 percent of its total day viewers and 53 percent of its total primetime viewers.

CNN has also been embroiled in controversy. One of its left-wing hosts, Don Lemon, was caught giving disgraced actor Jussie Smollett strategy advice.

Left-wing Chris Cuomo, who frequently chastised Trump supporters and conservatives, was caught lying about how he advised his brother, Governor Andrew Cuomo, once again. CNN’s host has been terminated.

CNN has also been a target of former President Donald Trump on numerous occasions.
