CNN’s Ratings Sink Like Stone in 2019 While Fox News Set New Record For Total Viewership


After three years of lying to the American
people about Trump and Russia, the American people have spoken and they are not happy
with CNN. The final numbers for 2019 are in and CNN
saw their ratings collapse. They were never that good but now they are
basically irrelevant. Fox News, on the other hand, saw record viewership
which is fitting as they were the only ones who got the biggest story of the year and
the biggest scandal in American history – FISA/Comey/Trump witch hunt – correct. MSNBC saw a slight decline as well after relentlessly
pushing a false narrative about Trump and Russia. Capitalism at its finest – lie to the people
and give them a bad product and they will abandon your business. From The Daily Wire: In total viewers for 2019, CNN was down in
22nd place, averaging just 972,000 viewers per night — only a little better than half
that of MSNBC and a third of Fox’s average viewership. According to Nielsen’s data, CNN is down
9 percent over the previous year. MSNBC also lost viewers, but at a much lower
percentage, its total viewership dropping 3 percent over 2018. Fox News, on the other hand, increased its
total viewers by 3 percent. Deadline tries to highlight some positives
for both MSNBC and CNN amid the grim overall numbers, but ends up acknowledging that Trump’s
preferred network still beats out both in head-to-head competition: From The Hill: Fox News averaged 2.5 million viewers per
night in 2019, the most in its 23-year history, making the network the most-watched channel
on basic cable. According to Nielsen Media Research, Fox News
beat out ESPN, with its 1.78 million viewers, and third-place MSNBC, which drew an average
of 1.75 million viewers in prime time. Fox topped its cable competitors for a fourth
straight year, Nielsen said. CNN finished 22nd, with an average of 972,000
viewers per night.
