CNN reportedly saw their ratings plummet by 44 percent in the first week of the Biden administration.
CNN saw their ratings crater by 44 percent in the first week of the Biden administration, something Variety says “may offer a portent of what the post-Trump era will be like for the network.”
Primetime numbers for the pro-Biden network steadily declined throughout January from record highs but dropped significantly more than other networks during the final week.
They also struggled with some very important demographics.
“Viewership data across two key metrics—the target news demographic for people ages 25-54, and the total audience watching—shows that CNN ended the final week of January with ratings dropping roughly 44% for total audience … across all three hours of primetime,” reports Variety.
MSNBC actually fared the best of the big three networks in the final week of January, edging out Fox News.
Tucker Carlon, according to the numbers, was the only program across all three networks in primetime to maintain the same level of viewership during Biden’s first week and remained relatively steady throughout January.
