In other good news, CNN’s ratings were crap AGAIN this past week … they just keep dropping, and dropping, and dropping.
And look at who’s number one.
No wonder Brian Stelter is always complaining about Fox News. We’d be cranky too if we were supposedly a popular news outlet and were getting beaten by Home and Garden, the Hallmark Channel, and Investigation Discovery.

CNN, which finished No. 12 across cable in total prime time viewers, posted +13% year-over-year growth in the daypart. That’s more growth than its cable news competition. On the downside, CNN was -7% in total viewers across total day, despite earning a top 10 ranking in that daypart (No. 9).
So they’re growing but they still suck.
That’s gotta hurt.
Thursday cable news hourly ratings shares, 25-54 demo:

Wompity womp womp.
Upon hearing that CNN lost in the ratings last week to a channel called Investigation Discovery, what is your first reaction?

We voted for LOL although truth be told, this editor loves Investigation Discovery.
How cool is this?! Other networks can't fix what they won't acknowledge is broken.
Happy for @FoxNews. They win – we win!

And since Fox News is in first place again (for the 20th week, wow), the Left was front and center to shake their tiny little fists and act like a bunch of toddlers who need a juice and a nap.

Actually, when it comes to ratings all that really matters are the numbers, pal.
Soooo….the ‘ol Dukes of Hazzard TV watchers and WWF fans aged and found a news channel they could relate too. FOX viewers aren’t after news. The want attractive blonds in short dresses, small words and hateful entertainment. News quality is an afterthought.

Because people are too dumb to watch CNN? EL OH EL.
Are these demo splits able to analyze length of viewing? It has long been my belief (need to back up with study) that #FauxNews viewers are basically watching non-stop from 5pm-11pm with little exception. Especially 8-10pm.

Only great thinkers use the term, ‘Faux News.’
So "fox entertainment" is more entertaining than other news shows, outrage is more fun than analysis. Says a lot about how opinions are formed in this country

They don’t get it, THIS is why they keep losing.
Let’s hope they don’t figure it out anytime soon.
