The ratings at CNN have been in the red compared to Fox News and MSNBC for sometime, however, since the Mueller Report cleared President Trump they’re in an even more disastrous free fall.
The latest ratings show that Fox News powerhouse Tucker Carlson has beat all of CNN’s prime time shows COMBINED.
Last week, The Wrap reported that President Donald Trump took to Twitter Thursday to mock the ratings of MSNBC and CNN in the days since Attorney General William Barr said the Mueller report showed no evidence of collusion between Trump and his 2016 campaign and the Russians.
He started by singling out a favorite target, the MSNBC morning show hosted by former fans Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
“Wow, ratings for ‘Morning Joe,’ which were really bad in the first place, just ‘tanked’ with the release of the Mueller Report,” Trump said in an early morning tweet. “Likewise, other shows on MSNBC and CNN have gone down by as much as 50%. Just shows, Fake News never wins!”
Trump didn’t cite specific numbers or say which shows had suffered a 50 percent drop-off, but he may have been obliquely referring to a widely shared piece in the Daily Beast citing ratings concerns at MSNBC now that the Trump-Russia collusion narrative was on ice.
CNN lashed out at Tucker on Twitter, but supporters of the popular Fox News host fought back.
Tucker is destroying your ratings.
Number don’t lie, people do.
You got Tucked.

Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show earned more viewers last week than all of CNN’s primetime line up combined, reports the Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra.
This has to be a bitter pill for CNN. For years now the far-left network has done everything in its power to bring Carlson down. By any measure, CNN has conducted what can only be described as a straight up, deliberate demonization campaign.
CNN has also participated in the effort to have Carlson blacklisted by advertisers due to his right-of-center political beliefs. Since the fake news outlet cannot beat Carlson in the ratings, it is hoping to drive him off the air through McCarthyism.
Obviously this has backfired in a big way.
Throughout all of last week, CNN’s primetime lineup averaged a limp 2.474 million viewers, while all on his own, Carlson averaged 3.475 million viewers.
Here is the specific breakdown according to Nielsen:
Anderson Cooper: 810,000 viewers
Chris Cuomo: 875,000 viewers
Don Lemon: 789,000 viewers
This means that Carlson not only beat all three of these left-wing hacks combined, he beat them by a cool million total viewers.
Although the numbers aren’t yet available, my guess is that you could easily add Jake Tapper’s weekly average and/or Erin Burnett’s weekly average, and Carlson still comes out on top — or close enough for bragging rights.
Carlson usually humiliates CNN, as does MSNBC, but last week was a turning point for the anti-Trump network that went all in pushing the Russia Collusion Hoax.
For two years, CNN flooded its network with one fake news bombshell after another and a narrative that assured viewers the Mueller Report would be the end of Trump — that impeachment was right around the corner.
CNN was certain Mueller would come through with some ginned-up allegation against the president. And so, for two whole years, CNN baited its viewers with this nonsense, and when Mueller failed to come up with the goods, those viewers fled in droves. MSNBC is having the same problem, but nowhere near the bottoming out CNN faces.
And CNN’s ratings humiliations show no signs of going away.
On Monday, Carlson earned 3.053 million viewers, which again beat the three stooges named Cooper (791K), Lemon (882K), and Cuomo (973K) combined.
Erin Burnett attracted only 684K viewers. Wolf Blitzer earned just 688K and 617K viewers.
The numbers for Jake Tapper, the far-left anchor who colluded with disgraced former FBI Director James Comey and disgraced former CIA chief John Brennan to launch the Russia hoax, could only snag 626K viewers.
Tapper was hired to anchor the 4 p.m. hour, to be the all-important lead-in that launched CNN’s entire night. The once-respected newsman has turned into a total failure and turn-off, a neurotic mix of fake news, virtue-signaling, and self-important sanctimony.
Overall on Monday, Fox averaged 2.82 million primetime viewers to CNN’s laughable 882K.
In total day, Fox averaged 1.783 million viewers to CNN’s pathetic 595K.
On the credibility front, CNN is over, a spent shell of hate and deception.
On the ratings front, CNN has been in real trouble for years, but with their Russia Collusion Hoax fully exposed, these numbers are now a full-blown catastrophe.
The only thing keeping CNN alive right now is a rigged system that forces 89 million Americans to pay for a cable channel they don’t watch.
