Imagine being a somewhat (in)famous talking head who goes on vacation and your show gets BETTER ratings while you’re GONE.
Ouch, Brian Stelter.
So much ouch.
“To make matters worse for Stelter, his own show performed better last week when replacement host John Avlon filled in.”
CNN’s Brian Stelter returns from vacation to host lowest-rated ‘Reliable Sources’ of year https://t.co/nlcpCPRu9t

Gonna guess John Avlon didn’t spend the entire show bi*ching about what was happening on Fox News. We suppose if CNN viewers wanted to know what that other station was up to, they’d watch it for themselves. The Hallway Monitor schtick only goes so far.
From Fox News: (heh)
CNN’s struggling media program “Reliable Sources” with Brian Stelter hit another low on Sunday with its smallest audience of 2021 as the liberal program has now failed to crack the one-million viewer plateau for five consecutive weeks.
Stelter’s program averaged only 810,000 total viewers and a dismal 163,000 among the key demographic of adults age 25-54 on May 2, for its worst performance of the year in both categories.
To make matters worse for Stelter, his own show performed better last week when replacement host John Avlon filled in. The Avlon-hosted edition of “Reliable Sources” on April 25 averaged 907,000 for nearly a 100,000-viewer increase over Stelter’s return.
Nearly 100k viewer increase over Tater’s return.
You perfect loser.

America is on a low-carb diet and that means a hard pass on potatoes.

Couldn't happen to a bigger tater. He's just a parody now.

Stelter: I’ve not changed a thing, and I’m all out of ideas!
