CNN Fails to Reach 1m Viewers for an Entire Week as Credibility Plummets
Network is struggling to keep its ratings without Donald Trump as president
Establishment news network CNN continues on its rapid decline of viewership as its credibility remains in tatters due to bias and journalistic ethics.
The network has gone an entire week without managing to reach one million viewers from July 28 to August 3, Nielsen data reported.
The new data shows the network is struggling to keep its ratings without Donald Trump as president.
CNN recently found itself in hot water amid reports that their host Chris Cuomo enabled his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's sexual behavior toward women amid his sexual harassment scandal.
CNN saw a slight bump in viewers amid the report from New York Attorney General Letitia James on the sexual harassment allegations against Cuomo, but that seemed like it was only to see if his brother would address the controversy.
Unsurprisingly, Cuomo avoided talking about the scandal altogether on his show, which saw just 930,000 viewers.
"Cuomo Prime Time" averaged just 872,000 viewers despite it being CNN's highest-rated show.

The network came third behind Fox News's "Hannity," which shares the same time slot and received 2.3 million viewers.
Meanwhile, MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" saw just 1.6 million viewers.
CNN's primetime lineup averaged a measly 858,000 viewers, which marked a massive 3% decline since January when Trump was in office.
In May, Neon Nettle reported that CNN had lost 67% of its total viewers since Trump left office in Janaury.
Neilsen Media Research reported that during primetime hours of 8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. (EST), CNN lost 65% of its total viewers since January.
But in the 25-54 age demographic, the most critical age group for ad networks, CNN saw 71% of its viewers for both the day and primetime disappear.
The network only reached over 1 million viewers on July 27 when it covered the Democrat-led House select committee investigating Jan. 6.
Last month, CNN's broadcast of its town hall event with Joe Biden failed also and drew abysmal viewers.
The network sat in the shadows of Fox News and MSNBC for primetime hours.
July's town hall garnered just 1.5 million viewers, over half the number of the total viewers that Fox News had at the same time.
But the network has other issues like the Cuomo brothers and the return of its chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, who was caught masturbating on a work Zoom call with his New Yorker colleagues last year.
