CNN’s attacks against President Trump reached a new low in 2019, and so did their television ratings and viewership. At one time CNN was the industry standard for cable news, but under Jeff Zucker CNN is a total laughing stock. Few are watching the now fake network, and that is a good thing.
CNN’s Ratings Collapse In 2019, While Fox News Dominates, Hits New Record
By DailyWire, January 2nd, 2019:
It wasn’t hard to predict who would finish the year the winner of the cable news ratings race, but predicting just hard CNN would faceplant is another matter.
The increasingly openly left-leaning network, which has suffered a loss in viewership in recent years, saw another 9% decline in total viewers, according to Live+7 Nielsen ratings for 2019. Its primary left-leaning competitor, MSNBC, also saw a decline in total viewers, but at a third of the rate of CNN. MSNBC’s total viewers nearly doubled that of CNN.
Meanwhile, Fox News notched a new record high in total viewers and average primetime viewers.
Nielsen’s full-year ratings for 2019 found Fox News, ESPN, and MSNBC atop the cable news networks, in that order, while CNN finished far below, at 22nd overall.
“Fox News averaged 2.5 million viewers per night in 2019, the most in its 23-year history, making the network the most-watched channel on basic cable,” The Hill reports. “According to Nielsen Media Research, Fox News beat out ESPN, with its 1.78 million viewers, and third-place MSNBC, which drew an average of 1.75 million viewers in prime time.”
Fox’s dominant performance in 2019 makes four years in a row that the right-leaning network has beat out the cable competition.
