The ratings are in and it’s bad news for CNN.
While Fox maintained it’s number one spot, other news networks plummeted in viewership compared to last year, including CNN.
“CNN saw staggering declines, shedding nearly 90% of its early 2021 audience in multiple categories. CNN averaged 2.7 million viewers from Jan. 4-10 last year as the network experienced a brief post-election spike but plummeted to only 548,000 average viewers last week, for a stunning year-over-year drop of 80% of its total audience,” Fox News reports.
“Fox News has now outdrawn CNN and MSNBC combined for 21 straight weeks. Fox also outdrew NFL-heavy ESPN’s 1.1 million viewers to finish as the most-watched basic cable option.”
