CNN seems fine, if you look at real stats. All big 3 cable news networks enjoyed huge increases the quarter.



Sure CNN is fiction. Most fantasy shows do well.....The Walking Dead....Lost.....


If CNN is, so is FOX and MSNBC. They all got huge market share bumps. Rachel Maddow propelled MSNBC to #2.


That's saying something. It was not due to her journalistic integrity. Everyone just wanted to see the death throes of a slaughtered fool..

The MSM arena has become a sinister circus.

If we're talking trends, I think this graph reveals a more accurate picture as to what's going on:



CNN and Fox are trending downward (though CNN posted its best quarter recently), while MSNBC is surging. So how do you spin that?

Your link is a paid subscription.

Got anything that can be checked without paying for It?

Anyone can skew numbers on a graph and loosely base it on Nielsen....I'd like to see the figures they used because I have actually viewed the Nielsen rating and they show nothing like what this graph has posted.


No, the link is to a wordpress blog. It references the WSJ, which is indeed a paid subscription.

If you data to refute the graph, by all means, let's see it.


Yes, your are correct about it being a WordPress blog with a single graph and all of 200 words in it.

It has a link to where it says it got the graph (WSJ), which I am guessing you, like Vorian, didn't click on. That link is a paid subscription which doesn't allow the viewer to see anything about where they drew their data from

As expected...no real research.

Why did he give her time? To try to boost his ratings. So his numbers went up that night and a whole bunch of folks got to see him get nailed.
Why did they get Alex Jones on msm? To boost ratings.

I suppose they see themselves as sacrificing themselves for their Masters like the virgins throwing themselves into the volcano.

There's even a movement now to get them out of the airports!

Top cable programs for May.



Top cable programs for 2017 first quarter.






Fox News claimed 13 of the top 15 cable news programs in total viewers and 8 out of the top 10 in the A25-54 demo for the first quarter of 2017.


Top cable programs for 2017 second quarter.






Fox News lays claim to 14 of the top 20 cable news programs in total viewers this past quarter, led by Tucker Carlson Tonight. Hannity ranked No. 3 in total viewers, followed by The Five, Special Report with Bret Baier. The Story with Martha MacCallum finished No. 7 in total viewers, with The Fox News Specialists, America’s Newsroom and Outumbered rounding out the top 10. Additionally, 5 out of the top 10 in the 25-54 demo hail from Fox News.


Hear that? That's the CNN defense argument being shattered.

Oh, and plenty of younger folks are watching Fox.

I'm told that CNN holds a near-monopoly on Airport screens and they count passengers as viewers, regardless of how many are actually watching.
if this anti-CNN petition works and airports stop playing CNN could hurt their ratings a bit.


Link? Quote? "I'm told" doesn't work.


Enjoy....

This crappy OP gets 13 flags. No one who gave the flags took a second to see if what was posited was factual. That's just lazy.


Same could be said for CNN viewers who sit there, mouth agape, believing everything they are told without a cursory look into external sources to ascertain the facts from the fakes.

We need your crystal ball too, the one that shows you who did and did not look to see if anything was factual.

I deleted CNN from my news feed, I am tired of their BS. I won't go back.


I am sure they are sad you left.


Your comment illustrates perfectly CNN's rating problem. They just don't care, and people in droves can understand that.


CNN has no ratings problem. If you scroll back, you will see it has gained marked share, greatly, not lost.

People will say that all night though...I am tired of saying scroll up.

The echo chanber hurts my ears.


Oh but they DO have a ratings problem. Everyone I talk to at work, and anywhere else laughs at the CNN idea. They don't watch it anymore. Of course being fake news, they can pay big bucks for a bunch of "official stats" being displayed attempting to refute the bad ratings. Are they saying their bad ratings is just a wild conspiracy theory too?


CNN SUCKS the gigantic but limp donkey banana, at least that's what I hear everywhere I go, even from democrats. Compared to 20 years ago when CNN actually reported news, their ratings are down. To say their ratings are up is like saying global warming is real because temps are up this summer.


That is hilarious! Just before you edited your post, I was just about to respond that your "everyone I talk to" argument sounds a lot like the "it's cold here today, so global warming is crap" argument that the right likes to use (including trump). So, yeah, your argument is kinda like the anti-agw baseless argument. As to temps this summer - yeah, it's damn hot and will probably be yet another record year!


I knew that would entertain somebody! I'm glad it was you.(And that is a funny synchronicity)
And I have heard the left promote AGW using the argument that it's been hot lately. Perhaps CNN will begin using baseless arguments to re-promote AGW soon since using baseless arguments to destroy Trump aren't working!


Well, TBH, I was being facetious in my response - but with your good-natured response, I gave you a star.... even though we likely differ on most every possible viewpoint.

Yes - by reference, I meant the link to the WSJ. And, yes, I did click on it and, no, I do not have a subscription.

Yep..when CNN peddles in fake news, the network will die because Liberals prefer facts and substance over lies.

Fox and Brietbart do so well because the Republicans do not care about either and the more they lie and spin, the more popular they are amongst conservatives. Facts and truth need not apply.

I have watched Trump spew the term "fake news" and like good little sheep, his supporters trumpet this phrase and this proves they are easily manipulated.


You make such wonderful and insightful points.

I'll remember you fondly in two weeks when I see the blank space under your screen name.

I actually noticed this yesterday. CNN's live cast on youtube had about 60 viewers.


There are multiple CNN live casts on Youtube. Some are small some are big.


Can you please link to a big one for me so I can see their viewership?

Oh, and livecast on YouTube isn't counted by Nielsen yet....i just want to see how poorly their livecast does as well.

OK, you've proven that Fox is at the top - I don't think anyone is disputing that, but not sure how that shows CNN collapsing?? Collapsing implies a trend.

It's been shown....over and over and over in this thread with the ACTUAL Nielsen ratings being posted.

Are you not realizing that the pic in the OP and the repetitive pics in this thread of the same are the actual Nielsen ratings or something?

The FOX News viewers, at their average age, will be dead in a few years.

Replaced by younger viewers as they become older , wiser , more intelligent , and better informed
The BS you post has already been proven just that - BS

I can't without knowing where they actually pulled their data from and how they crunched their numbers to make the graph.

I can make numbers look like anything I want if I make the dataset small enough and with the correct subset to skew it in my favor.

A blog with a graph linked to a subscription only site gives me nothing except a blog with a graph based on imaginary numbers unless I pay for them.

Anywho...as I've said earlier in this thread...the actual Nielsen numbers have been posted in this thread 5 times I believe, including the OP.

I knew that, but something has come over me lately and I just don't feel any need to feed the "divide" war going on anymore.(maybe sometimes). Uniting people with friendliness seems more rewarding. Could this be a byproduct of Trump's efforts so far and we are just starting to see it? Okay, maybe comedy isn't my best routine, but I'll work on it, I promise.

It's almost like all the anti-Trump hype is driving people to realistic news networks for comfort.
