Ratings Crisis: CNN Suffers Viewership Collapse of Nearly 30 Percent


Breitbart: With week two of May 2018 now in the books, we find that CNN’s ratings have collapsed even more than last week, close to -30 percent in total viewers and an astonishing -35 percent in demo viewers.

Before we get to the numbers, I should add that CNN is an outlier; meaning its stunning ratings collapse is unique in cable news.

Compared to this same week last year, Fox News increased its total viewers in primetime and total day by +6 and +3 percent, respectively. While MSNBC did see a ratings drop, it was able to keep that drop in the single digits: -9 percent in total day and in primetime.

CNN’s viewership drop, however, is jaw-dropping, especially when you recall just how big the news was last week.

While no one in the media want to talk about it, CNN’s relentless fake news sprees have not only created a massive credibility problem  for the hate network, the far-left cable channel’s ratings crisis is even more severe.

CNN lies.  Numbers do not…

  1. Collusion News Network has become a one string banjo. Who can listen 👂 to that?

  2. Realizing the “importance” of May ratings (?) surely this must mean that CNN will close up, go out of business, die etc. Poor Wolf.

  3. Say it ain’t so!
    Congress needs to pass a law that we MUST tune into CNN or pay a fine.
    It’s only FAIR!

    Shouldn’t there be commercials on all the other networks whining and crying about this, obvious, abuse of authority by Trump!?

    Actually, I’m kinda surprised that they have ANY viewer-ship, AT ALL!
    Wobbles the mind … Hong Kong’s on the Left Coast of South America! Everybody knows that!

    izlamo delenda est …

  4. Why do their ratings matter above their clear lack of professional integrity!?
    How many instances of reporting falsehoods,
    misrepresenting a story through omissions, or
    blatantly ignoring to covers news unfavorable to their politics,
    does it take for them to be fined or shut down by the FCC ???

    And who funds them, since their ratings demonstrate they are obviously not a viable business?

  5. Fear not, CNN. If you should ever succumb to market forces and karma, Sarah Sanders will keep a CNN memorial seat in the back of the press room.

  6. Any advertiser would be far better off putting up bill-boards in major cities. Way cheaper and would be seen by far greater numbers of people.

  7. Thirds twins memorial seat should be a American Standard toilet considering all the BS CNN has produced.

  8. I think ninety percent of there ratings are waiting rooms and airports. The last ten percent are people watching just see what nonsense they’ll pass off as news,

  9. If CNN shut it all down right now, it wouldn’t be soon enough.
    It is a pleasure watching them implode though. People are finally
    waking up.

    Actually, that may make them a very viable business. If they can keep down expenses.

    Who’d pay, actual money, for a list of people that sent their money to a “Nigerian Prince”? It may not be a large number of “businesses”. But the market is clearly there.

  11. It would be awesome to see FOX news broadcast at all the major airports. I don’t think brain-dead libs can handle the truth though.

  12. In 2013, Congress repealed a law that made it illegal for US intelligence agencies to feed propaganda to US news outlets. CNN is clearly a primary mouthpiece for CIA Deep State propaganda. I’m sure the CIA will soon, if they are not already, be paying to keep CNN on the air.

    Jeff Bezos bought WaPo after 2013. Jeff Bezos has large Govt. contracts with the CIA. See anything fishy there?

    Deep State CIA owns the MSM. That is perhaps Obama’s biggest legacy.

    LORDY if that is true… maybe we should look at the books. No, not CNN’s . . . OURS. Any cookbooking anyone? Brennans now on the reverse end around of a self-service before self payroll.

    And let U.S. count how many are FN Millionaires on a Lifetime of Gov’t Salaries. How does that work? It doesn’t. At least not in OUR World.
    Show me more . . .

  14. “Why do their ratings matter above their clear lack of professional integrity!?”

    What has “professional integrity” to do with cable or network “news?”
    If it’s on the shit-box, or downloadable to your phone, it’s entertainment – PERIOD! The purpose of entertainment, is, primarily, to entertain, and secondarily, propaganda – or maybe I have that backwards … at any rate, they no longer even pretend to have any integrity! Especially since integrity poses a restraint on the propagandistic arts.

  15. Just because the Suits at CNN are obsessed with Porn, does not mean it’s a good mainstream TV business model

  16. Suddenly, my morning coffee tastes better. Using the current phrase, CNN is a s—thole network. Look at the cretins on the air there. I dialed by for five minutes the other day and had to bail out before I hurled.

  17. Average viewer age is 62.
    CNN is where graying Boomers turn by sheer force of habit…which they formed when CNN was new.

    Terrible demographic for advertisers.
