CNN’s prime time hosts can only hope it will be better in the new building.

As CNN prepares to move its prime time studios and operations to a glitzy new building at New York City’s brand new–and widely reviled–Hudson Yards development, the network saw its prime time lineup drop 26% in April compared to the same month one year ago. CNN’s total audience in prime time was well under a million viewers–767,000–while competitors MSNBC and Fox News finished the month far ahead: MSNBC in second place overall with 1.660 million total viewers, and Fox News leading all of cable with a total audience of 2.395 million.

April ranks as CNN’s lowest-rated month among total viewers in nearly four years, since October 2015. CNN’s Cuomo Primetime, which has been the network’s highest-rated hour, drew a total audience of 917,000 viewers in April, the show’s worst-ever performance.

Among viewers 25-54, the demographic most coveted by national advertisers, the falloff for CNN was even more stark: down 41 percent. CNN drew 198,000 viewers in the demo, behind MSNBC (255,000) and Fox News (389,000). All three networks saw year-over-year declines in April, with MSNBC down 36% and FNC down 19%.

  1. It looks to me like Don Le Mon, Anderson, and Erin Burnett could hold ALL of their viewers in the Cuomo Basement together and still observe “Social Distancing” .

    Could not happen to a better group .

  2. Cuomo just turned angry and goes on rants. No one wants to listen to someone who’s angry all the time.

  3. I dropped every cable package that included CNN or MSNBC several years ago and pay the monthly fee to get FOX – the only way you can get it because it’s not included in any news packages.

    I was in a store that has a wall of TVs that were on CNN – Cuomo raving in a press conference while the virus infection and death count ran along the side. I can’t believe anyone would watch that crap all day.

  4. Last Man Standing. Its a Tim Allen sitcom. Tim Allen supports DJT which makes him an outcast in Hollywood. ABC cancelled Allens show evem though it was a ratings winner. FOX picked it up and the show continues. You get the feeling that the entire cast might be supportive of DJT. The show takes a lot of shots at Hillary Obama etc
    I wonder if the Trump win in November will finally be the last nail in the CNN coffin

  5. Used to watch CNN & FOX to enjoy the ‘bunfight’…then CNN became more angry, and FOX mellowed a tad.

    Now it’s 4:1 FOX…

  6. I would be curious as to the ratings of LOCAL newscasts. Since this “pandemic” started, I have not watched any newscasts. Any news I need, I can get from the Internet.
