New data shows the mainstream media outlet’s ratings have nosedived more than 20 percent this May compared to last May, whereas the ratings of CNN’s top competitors — Fox News and MSNBC — have remained steady.
Last May, CNN averaged about 1.12 million viewers during the primetime hours, according to Variety. That figure has dropped to just 859,000 this May, a whopping 23 percent decrease.
In the daytime, CNN averaged 821,000 viewers last May, but has accumulated just an average of 649,000 viewers this May, marking a 21 percent decrease.
In the coveted 25-54 age demographic, CNN averaged 399,000 last May, while garnering just 286,000 this May so far, a 29 percent decrease.
