Chris Licht is too late —someone put this network out of its misery.
According to a report from Fox News, CNN just suffered its smallest weekday audience among the highly coveted 25-54-year old demo in 22 years: just 56,000 viewers.
The last time CNN had a smaller turnout among the critical category was July 10, 2000, Fox reports.
From Fox News...
Friday was also CNN’s smallest weekday audience among total viewers since June 2014, as the network settled for only 283,000 average viewers. By comparison, Fox News averaged 1.4 million total viewers and 209,000 in the key demo. It was Fox News’ largest advantage over CNN since August 6, 2015.
The dismal turnout capped a miserable three-day stretch for CNN, as the Warner Bros. Discovery network averaged only 88,000 demo viewers June 15-17 for its worst three-weekday performance since June 2014.
Things weren’t much better for CNN on Sunday when “Reliable Sources” with left-wing host Brian Stelter 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.
All this terrible news for CNN comes in the wake of reports that some of the network’s more “high-profile” personalities might be on the chopping block for being too partisan in their reporting (we’re looking at you, Stelter).
