DEATH SPIRAL: CNN’s Ratings Fall Below NEWSMAX for the First Time

CNN’s ratings continued to death spiral this week when more viewers watched conservative network Newsmax than the failing news outlet.

From Mediaite:

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.
