Former Fox News anchor Chris Wallace seems to regret moving to CNN as reports are emerging that he is now having "daily breakdowns" over the “miserable failure” of the new streaming platform CNN+.

The launch of CNN+ has been nothing sort of catastrophe as the platform draws in fewer than 10,000 daily viewers and even lower subscriber numbers.

As CNBC reports:

Fewer than 10,000 people are using CNN+ on a daily basis two weeks into its existence, according to people familiar with the matter.

The people spoke with CNBC on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss nonpublic data.

CNN+ launched on March 29. The subscription news streaming service, which charges $5.99 a month or $59.99 annually, only became available on Roku on Monday and still isn’t on Android TV.

Still, the paltry audience casts doubt on the future of the application following the recently completed combination of Discovery and WarnerMedia into Warner Bros. Discovery.

Chris Wallace has voiced frustration to his staffers over CNN+, according to reporter Jon Nicosia.

“SOURCE: Chris Wallace is ‘having daily breakdowns’ over the ‘miserable launch’ of [CNN+],” reporter Jon Nicosia said.

“Wants a ‘CNN show or is threatening to walk’ they go on. ‘He is having staffers count how many times a day his promo is playing.’”

The source also reportedly told Nicosia that Wallace is “telling anyone that will listen he wants” Chris Cuomo’s old time slot.

Wallace announced his decision to leave Fox News for CNN+ last year, saying he looked forward to the “new freedom.”

“I am thrilled to join CNN+. After decades in broadcast and cable news, I am excited to explore the world of streaming,” he said.

“I look forward to the new freedom and flexibility streaming affords in interviewing major figures across the news landscape—and finding new ways to tell stories,” he added.

“As I embark on this adventure, I am honored and delighted to join Jeff Zucker and his great team.

"I can’t wait to get started.”

Wallace said that he left Fox News when his colleagues “began to question the truth” pertaining to the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill.

“I’m fine with opinion: conservative opinion, liberal opinion,” Wallace told The New York Times.

“But when people start to question the truth — 'Who won the 2020 election?' 'Was Jan. 6 an insurrection?' — I found that unsustainable.”
