CNN suffered a major setback in April as the network recorded its worst ratings in nearly four years, while Fox News continued its dominance.
Compared to April 2018 CNN’s primetime viewership dropped 26 percewnt to 767,000 compared to Fox News’ 2.395 million and MSNBC’s 1.660 million making it the lowest-rated month in total viewers since October 2015. To top it off CNN’s Cuomo Primetime, the network’s highest-rated hour had its worst ever performance with an average of 917,000 viewers in April.
The news was even worse in the highly coveted 25-54 demographic where CNN drew just 198,000 viewers–a 41 percent drop, trailing Fox at 389,000 and MSNBC at 255,000 which were lower by 19 and 36 percent respectively.
CNN also failed to place any shows in the top ten in either total viewers or the demographic with the aforementioned Cuomo Primetime finishing in 26th place.
