CNN continues to bleed viewers as ratings reach new lows.
Per Fox News:
Americans largely avoided CNN during Father’s Day weekend as the network continued to hemorrhage support from the demographic most coveted by advertisers.
CNN managed only 67,000 average viewers between ages 25-54 from June 18-19 for its smallest weekend audience since 2000 in the category that pays the bills. It was the network’s third-worst performance in the critical demo during a weekend since 1993.
It was also the network’s smallest audience on a Saturday among the demo since October 1993 when only 58,000 tuned in, and only the second time that CNN delivered under 60,000 demo viewers on a Saturday in 29 years.
In addition, viewership was especially dismal for “Reliable Sources” hosted by Brian Stelter.
According to Fox, the show “averaged only 421,000 total viewers and a mere 56,000 among the demo. It was the smallest audience for “Reliable Sources” since December 27, 2015, among total viewers and the smallest since Dec. 29, 2013, among the demo.”
Even Re-runs of “Family Matters,” “Roseanne,” “The Office,” and “Family Guys” outdrew Stelter, as did children’s shows “Peppa Pig” and “Spongebob SquarePants.”
