Official figures released this week reveals viewers turning away from network

Mainstream new network CNN is reportedly on the brink of collapse as it's rating plunge by a staggering 20 percent according to official figures released this week.

Despite the massive drop, other networks like MSNBC have continued to hold steady, but it seems that CNN's consistent coverage of Stormy Daniels has prompted viewers to switch off in droves.

Just May last year, CNN saw an average of 1.12 million total viewers and 399,000 demo viewers during primetime hours.

But in May this year, the network averaged just 859,000 total viewers and 286,000 demo viewers, representing a massive drop of 23 percent and 29 percent 29 percent, respectively.

According to Breitbart: By comparison, year-over-year in primetime, Fox News is up 5 percent in total viewers (2.24 million compared to 2.359 million) and experience only a 1 percent drop in the demo (453K compared to 448K).

MSNBC enjoyed a 4 percent increase in total viewers (1.69 million compared to 1.755 million) and a 16 percent drop in the demo (417K compared to 352K).

So, during primetime last week, CNN was only able to attract to attract an average of 859,000 total viewers compared to 1.755 million for MSNBC and 2.359 million for Fox.

In other words, MSNBC is nearly doubling CNN’s total primetime viewers while Fox News is nearly tripling CNN.

Total Day Viewers

Throughout May of last year, CNN averaged 821,000 total day viewers and 274,000 total day viewers in the 25-54 demo.

During the first week of May this year, CNN’s total day viewers have collapsed to an average of just 649,000. Demo viewers during the total day fell to just 205,000. That is a freefall of 21 percent and 25 percent, respectively.

By comparison, year-over-year in total day, Fox News held steady with a drop of only about 1 percent (1.42 million compared to 1.358 million) in total viewers and a 10 percent drop in demo viewers (302K compared to 272k).

MSNBC’s total day viewers jumped 4 percent (925K to 960K) with only a 4 percent drop in the demo (221K compared to 205K).

Any objective examination of these numbers can only deliver one conclusion: CNN is hemorrhaging a massive chunk of its already small audience. Moreover, the problem is not a lack of news. If that were the issue, Fox and MSNBC would also be shredding total viewers as opposed to holding steady and even gaining in some areas.

Obviously, CNN’s massive credibility problems are coming home to roost. “CNN” has become synonymous with “fake news” over the last year, and for very good reason. No one can trust anything reported by CNN, and why should they?

Last month I sat in a waiting room with close to a dozen strangers from every imaginable walk of life. When someone suggested putting some news on waiting room TV, one lady said, “As long as it’s not CNN,” and the whole room burst out laughing.

CNN is widely seen as a joke in America, something that will take years for the anti-Trump channel to shake if it ever decides to stop with the wildly partisan and dishonest hysterics.

What’s more, the network has pretty much turned itself over to porn star Stormy Daniels and her fake news-spreading attorney. A porn star and her ambulance chaser have become CNN’s assignment editors to the point of absurdity.
