Another disastrous month for imploding CNN. The Hollywood Reporter reports that CNN “wrapped January with its third lowest month on record among total viewers” and lost in 25-54 demo viewers to HLN. Moreover, CNBC reruns of “Shark Tank” topped “everything on CNN and, with the exception of The Rachel Maddow Show, MSNBC.”
FNC was the only network up compared to last January in total viewers. In primetime’s 8-11 p.m. block, both FNC and MSNBC were also barely off in the key demo — a respective 1 and 2 percent — while CNN dropped 35 percent. During the 7-11 p.m. block, MSNBC was the only network up, improving 4 percent. Good news for MSNBC included a new demo high for the not-yet-a-year-old All In With Chris Hayes.
CNN continues to struggle with New Day and Crossfire, which hit new lows in January[.]
As I write this, the CNN chyron reads: “Mom: My Son Is haunted By Demons.”
