Chris Wallace’s new show on CNN on Sunday night’s is tanking hard.
According to Radar Online, the Sunday night time slot for his show is in far worse shape now than it was before he began his new show:
Chris Wallace’s new show on CNN isn’t bringing in the viewership that network execs may hope for, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Sunday’s show brought in the lowest ratings yet, according to Nielsen Media Research.
Furthermore, stats revealed that his show has also driven down the time slot for CNN over 20 percent in comparison to how Sunday nights were ranking before his start.
This just shows that Wallace’s success at Fox News was more about Fox News than it was about Chris Wallace.
In related news, Radar Online is also reporting on a CNN memo warning of big changes coming to the network:
As the network overhaul continues, RadarOnline.com learned of an internal memo sent to staffers from the new CNN boss warning of noticeable changes that will “affect people, budgets, and projects.”
Licht noted, “All these moves are designed to keep CNN essential across platforms to ensure that wherever and however people get their news, they must have CNN.”
“When we conclude this process, CNN will still be the largest, most-respected news-gathering organization in the world,” the memo continued. “We will continue to cover any story, anywhere, any time — with more resources than anyone else.”
According to Jon Nicosia, the pressure is being put on Chris Licht to get this overhaul of the network done:
My Discovery source: “If Licht continues to slow walk the changes to @CNN I’ve asked for he will be out before Acosta”

That’s probably the reason for the memo.
