Brian Stelter’s CNN show has hit another low in a key demo according to a new report from Fox News.
Per the report, Sunday “Stelter’s program attracted only 100,000 viewers in the key demo of adults age 25-54 for its smallest audience of the year in the category. The dismal turnout was an eight-percent drop from the previous episode, which was previously the lowest-rated edition of 2021. ”
The report adds:
To put CNN’s alarmingly low figure in perspective, there are eight college football stadiums in America that hold more than 100,000 people. But Stelter couldn’t draw a larger crowd of the 25-54 age demographic in a country with a population of over 333 million. Ironically, Stelter spent a portion of the program talking about NBC’s Olympics advertisers.
“Reliable Sources” isn’t just struggling with viewers from the group that pays the bills. It is also having a hard time attracting viewers of any age. Stelter’s program drew only 675,000 viewers on Sunday for its second-smallest audience of the year.
“Reliable Sources” has now failed to surpass the one-million viewer average for four straight months, despite receiving a boost in July when Richard Branson’s test flight for Virgin Galactic occurred during his program.
