New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's town hall event on Sunday night was a rating disaster for news network CNN, according to reports.

De Blasio made caused CNN’s ratings to take a nosedive almost matching his poll numbers.

Just 376,000 viewers tuned into these Hizzoner for the 7 p.m. event, Nielsen reported.

Along with Steve Bullock’s 6 p.m. town hall, CNN saw a 25 percent drop in its average Sunday night ratings.

But Bullock performed slightly better, seeing 429,000 total viewers.

“You waited five years, and you did nothing,” activist Julianne Hoffenberg shouted at the Mayor as he spoke about last week’s firing of NYPD cop Daniel Pantaleo.

Police Commissioner James O’Neill said Pantaleo “can no longer effectively serve as a New York City police officer,” which ended Pantaleo’s career at the NYPD.

Earlier this month, de Blasio spoke to a weak crowd of around 15 likely Democratic voters at an event in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The presidential candidate took the floor at Parlor City Pub to a smattering of applause from the sluggish brunch set.

“Everything should be about our families, our lives, what everyday people are going through, what working people are going through,” de Blasio told the weak crowd.

Not counting press corps and campaign staff, the attendees, numbered around 15.

Earlier this month, Bill de Blasio boasted his progressive credentials on Wednesday's debate, riling against former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris of California.

The New York City mayor promised he would "raise taxes" on wealthy Americans if he wins the election.
