(FreedomBeacon.com)- In addition to finishing third in the ratings, CNN’s morning program, New Day, attracted half the viewers overall as the highest-ranking program.
According to reports, with a consistent viewership of more than 1 million people overall and a quarter of a million viewers in the crucial 25-54 age range, Fox & Friends continues to dominate the morning show ratings.
Fox & Friends attracted 1.35 million overall viewers and 235,000 demo viewers during the 8 a.m. hour on Thursday. From 6 to 9 in the morning, MSNBC’s Morning Joe drew 826,000 total viewers and 113,000 average demo viewers. CNN, meanwhile, had 449,000 total viewers at 8 a.m. and 103,000 in the demo.
Here are the daily averages for total viewers and the 25-54 demographic for the three cable news networks combined:
The total number of viewers for CNN was 548,000.
Fox News had 1.70 million viewers. For MSNBC, it was 921,000.
In the age 25 to 54 Demographic, CNN had 120,00 viewers,
Fox News had 253,000, and MSNBC had 107,000.
The averages for prime time in both the 25-54 demo and overall viewers, which includes programs that air from 8 to 11 p.m., shows the total viewers for CNN was 768,000.
2.52 million for Fox News, and MSNBC had 1.41 million viewers.
In the 25 to 54 demographic, CNN had 171,000 viewers,
Fox News had 356,000, and MSNBC had 138,000.
Meanwhile, reports show David Zaslav, CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, believes CNN is refocusing on “journalism.”
He suggests the left-leaning network will someday provide unbiased news that also appeals to conservatives.
Zaslav stated that Republicans and Democrats alike should be able to speak on the news network, and CNN is exhibiting that more frequently.
In the long term, he thinks CNN will be more worthwhile since they won’t be overly focused on ratings.
If I were the head of CNN, I’d stop looking at the ratings, too.
