CNN’s ratings continued to death spiral this week when more viewers watched conservative network Newsmax than the failing news outlet.
CNN prime time dropped on Friday to 335,000 average total viewers from 8 to 11 p.m, coming below right-wing channel Newsmax, which scored 357,000 average prime time viewers.
The ratings-beleaguered network landed in fourth place in prime time, also behind Fox News and MSNBC, which averaged 1.44 million and 1.08 million total average viewers in prime time — respectively.
In the key 25-54 age demographic, CNN did a bit better with 87,ooo average viewers. Fox led with 109,000 and MSNBC was in second with 98,000 average demo viewers. Newsmax, meanwhile, averaged 45,000 prime time demo viewers.
