The ten other candidates in the shriveling primary field were left out.

Candidates will have the chance to give opening statements, but there will be no closing statements.

They will also be granted a 75-second direct response time to questions, along with 45 seconds for rebuttals.

Earlier this week, de Blasio's town hall event saw news network CNN's rating plummet.

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.

Last week, de Blasio spoke to a weak crowd of around 15 likely Democratic voters as he pitched his presidential dreams 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.
