You might remember not long ago that Fox News host Chris Wallace left that cable net to take part in the venture that was known as “CNN+.”
As it turned out, CNN+ had the life span of an average housefly and went defunct about as fast as it takes Joe Biden to butcher a sentence.
How’s that all working out? Wallace had his Sunday premiere on CNN after the CNN+ debacle and the ratings were enormous. However, it depends on what your definition of “enormous” is:
“The legendary broadcaster's new show on CNN premiered on Sunday and was only able to deliver 401,000 viewers in the 7 PM/ET hour.” and just 44,000 in the demo. https://t.co/m7GENat73l

If the CNN thing doesn’t work out maybe Wallace can join Brian Stelter at Harvard.
I bet he's wishing he had stayed on Fox. 😂 😂 😂

Wallace might want to crawl back to Fox News on his knees:
Wallace pulled in only 43,800 in the 25-54 age demo. To make matters worse, the program was down double digits across every category versus the 2022 average, according to early date from Nielsen Media Research.
On Fox News, at the same time period, Trey Gowdy scored a massive 1.3 million viewers with his Sunday Night In America With Trey Gowdy show. His program had 78k in the key 25-54 age demo.
Those aren’t exactly numbers worthy of somebody described as a “legendary” newsman.
Less than test pattern numbers.

CNN’s only hope is for Trump to run for president again.
