(FreedomBeacon.com)- Since moving to CNN, the ratings of former Fox News host Chris Wallace are falling through the floor. His prime-time show, “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?” which began in the spring of 2022, saw its worst ratings since its launch, according to The Washington Examiner.
In January, the host’s show reportedly averaged just 365,000 viewers, but only 48,000 of them were in the 25 to 54-year-old demographic, according to Nielsen data. At the end of the month, the show, which was also recently renewed for another season, did worse, averaging 323,000 viewers and 38,000 in the young demographic.
Compared with Fox News, the show is in free fall. “Sunday Night in America” with Trey Gowdy reportedly averaged more than 1 million views during the same time with twice as many viewers in the key young demographic.
CNN has undergone a tough time securing ratings as shows like Brian Stelter’s “Reliable Sources” was recently canceled. The network is reportedly ranked behind both Fox News and MSNBC, leaving Warner Bros. Discovery to enact sweeping changes to the network in the hopes of turning the ship around, especially after the failed CNN+ streaming service was shut down after just less than a month of operation.
CEO Chris Licht has reportedly issued a warning call to employees of the company, saying that there will be significant changes. Licht has allegedly vowed to bring the outlet more toward the political center again, adding that he will fire anyone who cannot change their partisan tone. Breitbart reports that if the outlet only claimed to be biased like MSNBC rather than branding itself as “objective,” then it might not be struggling with ratings.
“I want to acknowledge that this is a time of significant change, and I know that many of you are unsettled,” Licht said. “There will be more changes, and you might not understand it or like it.”
