Far-left CNN, a fake news outlet that spreads conspiracy theories and encourages violence against conservatives, lost nearly half of its already anemic primetime audience last month.

Compared to May of 2020, CNNLOL’s primetime audience collapsed by a whopping 45 percent. The loss was just as acute in total day viewers, 44 percent.

In the 25-54 age demo, when compared to last year, CNNLOL lost 53 percent of that crowd during its failed primetime lineup and 50 percent during the total day.

In worse news, CNNLOL fell out of the top five primetime cable networks, losing to Fox News, MSNBC, TNT, ESPN, and HGTV, in that order.

In worser (don’t tell me that’s not a word) news, CNNLOL’s primetime hours could not even average a measly million viewers. Throughout the whole month, CNNLOL averaged just 913,000 total primetime viewers and 610,000 total day viewers.

By comparison, Fox attracted more than twice as many in primetime, with 2.166 million total average viewers, and 1.187 million in total day. MSNBC attracted 1.494 million average primetime viewers and 835,000 in total day.

It wasn’t just a year-over-year loss. As CNNLOL anchor Chris “Fredo” Cuomo’s ethical scandals continued to pile up last month, since only last month, CNNLOL has lost 11 percent of its primetime viewers and 22 percent of its total day viewers.

By comparison, when compared to April, Fox News lost only three percent of its primetime audience and three percent of its total day audience.  MSNBC lost just six percent of its primetime audience and 12 percent of total day viewers.

Get this, when competing with only Fox and MSNBC, CNNLOL’s highest ranked show in May came in at number 22, the garbage fire called Cuomo Primetime, which attracted only 1.044 million average viewers (a massive drop from 1.3 million average viewers last month)  and that was the  only CNNLOL show to average more than a million viewers.

Jake Tapper, who has some ethical issues of his own, was only able to attract an average of 826,000 viewers in May, a catastrophic drop from his 1.34 million average viewers last month.

The execrable Don Lemon, who will soon be gone, could only pull in an average of 753,000 viewers, which might explain why he’ll soon be gone.

While the serial liars called Jake and Chris and Don sunk like rocks, Tucker Carlson averaged 2.94 million viewers, Sean Hannity 2.63 million, and Laura Ingraham 2.055 million.

Even the disgraced Rachel Maddow walloped those losers with 2.52 million.

Seven of the top ten shows belong to Fox.

MSNBC filled the remaining three.

CNNLOL treaded water in the toilet, where it belongs.
