According to a report from Mediaite, CNN’s viewership continues its downward spiral; the mainstream media outlet suffered a ratings blow not seen since 1993 over the weekend; the network continues to lag far behind Fox News.
CNN’s weekend ratings for the month were the lowest of the year in both terms of demo and total viewers and coincided with a historic low for the network on Saturday the 18th – which saw the network dip to 57,000 total demo viewers. That Saturday was the lowest-rated since 1993, which pre-dated CNN’s top competitors Fox News and MSNBC.
CNN still beat MSNBC on the 18th however, as the latter network only brought in 55,000 total viewers in the demo. Alex Witt Reports was the lowest-rated show for the day in the demo bringing in only 43,000 viewers.
CNN programming too saw some lows as Reliable Sources notched its lowest-rated month since June of 2001, bringing in 79,000 demo viewers and 585,000 average total viewers.
The show also marked its lowest second quarter since 2019, with an average of 679,000 viewers and 111,000 average demo viewers.
