CNN has seen a dramatic decline in viewership ever since President Joe Biden took office in January.
The numbers: CNN’s ratings have plummeted by more than 50% in numerous categories, Fox News reports. Since Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 21, the network has had an average of one million viewers. That’s a drop of 54% compared to the period before the Biden administration officially entered the White House when CNN averaged 2.2 million viewers.
The most significant decline in ratings is among CNN’s key demographic, which dropped by 60%. In the first three weeks of January, CNN had an average of 617,000 demo viewers in this demographic but after Jan. 21, the number has plummeted to an average of 244,000.
Its primetime shows, hosted by Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, and Anderson Cooper have lost a portion of their audiences as well. An average of 3.1 million viewers tuned in during CNN during primetime between Dec. 28 and Jan. 21. Now, the network only has 1.4 million during the primetime hours, a drop of 55%. There was a 63% decline in the key demographic between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. as well.
CNN thrived during the Trump presidency. It hit a 40-year viewership record last year in November when the election took place.
“With Americans desperate for the facts, CNN has emerged as the #1 cable news network overall in total day among total viewers,” the network wrote at the time.
MSNBC also saw a downturn in viewership, but overall, fared better than CNN. The network lost 34% of its viewers in general. 30% of the primetime viewers it had while former president Trump was in office ditched MSNBC after Biden became president.
Worth noting: Networks reportedly fretted over a post-Trump era as they feared that Trump’s departure from the White House will result in a slump in ratings. The former president regularly claimed that the media “will tank if I’m not there.”
Last month, the Washington Post acknowledged that he was at least partially right. The article added publications like the Post and The New York Times also saw a drop in ratings.
Hey …. visit CNN sometime and ask yourself, “Would this be any different if it were produced by the Democratic party?” #DontTrustTheMedia
