To be fair, you get more intelligent dialogue from Yogi Bear…
For the month of May, CNN averaged 821,000 viewers per hour throughout the entire day and 1.12 million total viewers during the prime time hours. Comparably, FOX News averaged 1.42 million viewers per hour throughout the entire day and 2.24 million viewers during prime time, or twice as many viewers during prime time hours as CNN.
By the end of June, due to CNN being caught in a number of ‘fake news’ stories, its numbers dropped significantly.
On Wednesday June 28th CNN’s numbers dropped to only 666,000 TV viewers throughout the day and only 882,000 viewers during primetime. These pathetic numbers were roughly 80% of May’s monthly average for total day TV viewers and prime time viewers or 20% down.
Now this – CNN’s viewership may be even worse than was initially reported. As reported at The Federalist, for the week of June 26th – July 2nd, CNN’s primetime shows (Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon) managed to draw about 6% fewer viewers than multi-decade old re-runs of “Yogi Bear,” “Full House,” and “Friends” which air in the same time slots on Nick-At-Nite.
Fake news does not pay. Let’s hope that all biased reporting by left wing media outlets gets pointed out in the years ahead under President Trump so that they either tank in ratings or change their ways to less biased reporting.
