Debate leaves liberal CNN with lowly viewership
The station that "tells us what we need to know" got hosed last night. While the debate drew about 20 million viewers and FOX drew a number over 3.1 million during the 8-10 slot, CNN had an audience of of 569,000 for the two hour period. It wasn't pretty for them.

quote:

CNN’s viewership was especially low among the key demographic of adults age 25-54, averaging only 149,000 during the debate while FNC averaged 551,000. CNN’s demo turnout was smaller than the primetime averages of 31 different cable networks during the month of January.

CNN got crushed -- not just during the debate, but during all of primetime Wednesday night. The beleaguered network averaged only 772,000 viewers from 8-11 p.m. ET, while Fox News averaged 3.3 million during the same time period.

Despite the low output, CNN actually had less primetime viewers on two other evenings this year when it averaged only 762,000 on Valentine’s Day and only 730,000 on Jan. 13, the night of the College Football Playoff National Championship.

When do the stockholders of CNN’s company finally have enough?

When advertisers start leaving them but as long as CNN is paying to play in airports where half of their numbers come from, they will stay in until the last minute.

It's always shocked me they haven't done anything about their constant lower viewership.

There are tons of YouTubers who consistently pull better numbers.

Not a CNN apologist but I don’t think the debate was on CNN. Why would anyone, from either side want to watch Fredo instead of the debate?

It was stupid of the Democrats to schedule their debate on the same night as a TRUMP rally.

Yeah, honestly this was a dumb stat from the writer of this story. That is the type of propaganda that CNN would write up.

A lot of Trump supporters were watching the Trump rally or debate on NBC. Most CNN watchers would be watching the debate at that time on NBC.
