Conspiracy Media CNN and MSNBC Still Down in Ratings Since Mueller Report

Guest post by Mike LaChance at American Lookout

Now that the Mueller Investigation has ended with a thud, viewers on the left are not tuning in to CNN and MSNBC every night to find out when Trump will be removed from office.

It has hurt the ratings and the bottom line for both of the far left networks and particularly Rachel Maddow.

The Daily Caller reports:


MSNBC and CNN’s ratings have not recovered from a massive drop after special counsel Robert Mueller concluded his investigation into Russia collusion.

CNN delivered its second-lowest rated week of the year in total day and primetime between April 1 to April 7, according to Nielsen Media Research, while MSNBC had its second-lowest rated week of the year in the key 25-54 age demographic.


1. FNC (2,339,000)

2. MSNBC (1,642,000)

3. HOME AND GARDEN TV (1,223,000)

4. USA NETWORK (1,153,000)

5. TBS NETWORK (1,033,000)

Here are some other related numbers which are pretty brutal:

FOX News on the other hand, is booming.

Fox News Channel’s prime-time viewership beats CNN again during Thursday’s Julian Castro town hall

Fox News Channel’s primetime viewership numbers beat out the cable news competition once again on Thursday night.

According to Nielson Media Research’s early numbers, FNC bested CNN numbers even during the network’s own town hall event with 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro.

Averaging 2.7 million viewers and nearly 500,000 in the 25-54 age demographic, “The Ingraham Angle” numbers more than quadrupled CNN’s town hall in total viewers and almost tripled CNN in the 25-54 age category. CNN town hall’s brought in 654,000 average viewers and 174,000 in the age range.

CNN’s latest town hall ranked third in both categories and was down 41% in total viewers and down nearly 50% in the key 25-54 age demo. Thursday night’s special event for Castro also marked the second lowest-rated weekday primetime town hall in cable news history.

You have to wonder if the liberal media will ever recover from this.
