Chris Hayes Scores Worst Ratings In Decade, Still Beats CNN

In the 25-54 age demo last week, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes might have delivered the worst ratings in a decade in his timeslot. Nevertheless, while he was sinking in that particular demographic, every day last week Hayes still beat CNN’s Anderson Cooper  in total viewers.,

Despite the big comeback narrative CNN chief Jeff Zucker is pushing, the truth is that this is a demo comeback for the left-wing cable news network, not a viewership comeback. In the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demo, CNN is getting shellacked by Fox News and edging a sinking MSNBC. In total viewers, however, the story is completely different. During primetime, MSNBC still beats CNN.

Below are the total viewer/demo viewer numbers during the 8pm hour:

 

Monday

FOXN   THE OREILLY FACTOR: 2,683 – 498

CNN    Anderson Cooper 360: 438 – 177

MSNBC   ALL IN W/ CHRIS HAYES: 561 – 94

Tuesday

FOXN    THE OREILLY FACTOR: 2,812 – 524

CNN       Anderson Cooper: 360: 484 – 112

MSNB   ALL IN W/ CHRIS HAYES: 500 – 72

Wednesday

FOXN    THE OREILLY FACTOR: 3,067- 518

CNN       Anderson Cooper 360: 399 – 159

MSNB   ALL IN W/ CHRIS HAYES: 626 – 58

Thursday

FOXN    THE OREILLY FACTOR: 2,959 – 614

CNN       Anderson Cooper 360: 425 – 140

MSNB   ALL IN W/ CHRIS HAYES: 462 – 87

Friday

FOXN    THE OREILLY FACTOR: 2,953,  511

CNN       Anderson Cooper 360: 433,  92

MSNB   ALL IN W/ CHRIS HAYES:                448,  61

Demo viewers are important due to the fact they set advertiser rates.

As far as reach and impact, during the crucial primetime hours, CNN is still a third-place joke.
