CNN ratings collapse in post-Trump world

There’s no question CNN was biased against former President Donald Trump and gained viewers from attacking him. Now that he’s out of office, nobody’s watching.

CNN’s ratings are down 50% across different categories since President Joe Biden took office on Jan. 20, the Daily Wire reported. The network has been “hemorrhaging viewers” and has lost over a million since then.

Viewership for the network peaked in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election and was drawing 2.2 million on average in the early part of 2021, Fox News reported. However, ratings took a nosedive, cutting its audience by 54% to just a million viewers.

Worse yet for the network is who has been walking away. The adults age 25-54 key demographic viewership fell off by 60%, shrinking from 617,000 in late December through Inauguration Day to only 244,000 after Biden took office.

Even CNN’s primetime talent lineup is floundering.  Among their marquee players Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, and Anderson Cooper, the network had drawn 3.1 million viewers on average for its 8-11 p.m. time slot during the Dec. 28-Jan. 20 period. Now CNN only has about 1.4 million viewers for those programs, amounting to a 55% drop. The lineup had its worse drop in that coveted 25-54 demographic, losing 63 percent of its viewers.

Lemon tried to dismiss their demise in a podcast interview. “No. I’m not worried about it … Trump was a horrible person,” he reportedly told “Sway” host Kara Swisher. “And he was terrible for the country. And it is better for all — for the world that he is no longer the President of the United States,” Lemon said.

“So if that means that cable news ratings go down? Aww. So I’m not really that concerned about it,” Lemon insisted. “I would prefer that my ratings go down and Trump not be in office than my ratings be sky-high and him be there. That’s the honest truth.”

The network hinged its success on the wall-to-wall Trump-bashing and now has nothing to fall back on. They can’t cover the real news about Biden, and even their liberal viewers can’t be sustained on a diet of puff pieces when they are used to feasting on their pound of flesh from Republicans. Maybe that’s why Fox News is still “on pace to be the most-watched cable news network for the second month in a row among both total day and primetime viewers.”

  1. Single Mom Makes $89,844/Yr in Her Spare Time on The Computer Without Selling Anything. you can bring from $5000-$8000 of extra income every month. working at home for 4 hours a day, and earning could be even bigger.

    The potential with this is endless…>>>>>> http://www.works91.com

  2. If Don Lemon is not worried about the ratings for CNN and his own ratings he better start looking for a new job. If he doesn’t believe the country provided better leadership under President Trump’s Administration where has he been as the US is fallen apart at the seams with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and company.

    1. Garbage man in a very busy city might suit him well!… I do not like anything he ever has to say and find myself in opposition to just about every thing he has an opinion on. There are very very people like that but he is one of them!.. Robert C. Gamble Ret. USN/USMC “Doc G” (AW/FMF) Semper Fi!

  3. As I’ve said before. the ONLY reason people were watching CNN was to see what the NEXT FAKE NEWS ATTACK ON TRUMP WOULD BE. It certainly wasn’t to watch that Horse-Faced woman with a little boy’s hair-cut run her mouth.

  4. These people have their head in the (let’s be nice and say sand) but you know what I mean. How many of them really like Trump but didn’t have the guts to admit what he was doing for our country? Refused to tell the truth that he loved our country more than all of the fakes in government. People stood up and took notice of us and not sat back and laughed behind our backs. We had quit crawling on our bellies and begging people to like us. What a laugh they have become putting the bumbling old man they have in there now. All we can do is pray that they come to their senses before 2022 and get some help in for our country.

  5. IT’s TIME TO IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

    HARRIS is guilty of violating 18US Code 2381 Treason, 18 US Code 2382 Misprision of Treason, 18US Code 2383 Rebellion or Insurrection, 18 US Code 2384 Seditious Conspiracy and 18 US CODE 2385 Advocating Overthrow of Government!

    Can you tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

    Keep in mind: SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE

    1. With the funding of trump supporting Republicans, can’t really call us the silent majority anymore, we are more like the enraged majority.

    2. I think you’ve DRANK TO MUCH KOOL AID HOW YOU FRUMPTARDS CAN’T SEE THAT HE HAS RIPED A PART THIS COUNTRY 500,000 DIED ON HIS WATCH HE’S THE MOST RACIST PERSON TO EVER BE IN THE WHITE HOUSE YOU’RE ALL MAD BECAUSE HE LOST 81 MILLION VOTES NOW THE REPUBLICANS ARE SO PISSED BECAUSE THE LOST TOO OPEN YOUR EYES I’LL BET YOU ALL CASHED THE CHECKS 🖕☠️🐍

      1. GO TELL IT TO CHINA, YOU LIBERAL RETARD !!!! If you don’t like the way WE do things in OUR country, then GET THE HELL OUT OF OUR COUNTRY, and take all of your communist liberal A-HOLES with you, none of you will be missed !!! WHORE !!!

  6. CNN sucks, always has! Lemmon( an appropriate name , because he is one) Cuomo the self aggrandizer, cooper, Rachel Madcow, and others are below second rate! No wonder cnn is failing, hope they go down completely!

  7. CNN= Communist News Network. When they went left, I went right, and never looked back. When I went in the Army, base pay was $326.00 a month. Our job was to protect and defend our country against “all enemies” foreign and domestic. These people lied against the President of this country. Money means more to them than patriotism. Like many in government. All of them make too much money, if it make’s you turn on patriotism. Look at Dr Fauci, making over $400,000 a year! A government mouthpiece! Time to cut the payscales for these thieves!

      1. You are so right. Do you know how to get time limits on Senate and Congress? I think we need that more right.

        1. conventionofstates.com Click on COS Action, sign the petition, and ask everyone you know to do the same

  8. I believe most people seek “truth” and when they find they have been lied to, they want to know why. The worst thing is quoting false news to your friends and family, then being corrected by them because you were lied to or given half the story. CNN is getting what they deserve for their many lies. May the company go out of business along w/the liars and may God Bless the good people w/new jobs.

  9. King Biden and Queen Kamala don’t have a clue what their doing: Biden and Harris need to be impeached and any Democrat that can not stand for America and our Constitution need to go to. Call, write and email your Representatives Senators daily until we get results. Write to the supreme Court about the treason committed in the election. Urge them to rethink their decision to not look into the election fraud before our country goes down in flames.

    Stop complaining start calling and writing before its to late. I call and write everyday. 74million of us voted for Trump bombard these people with calls and letters.

  10. You are absolutely right. We have all been bystanders for much too long. No more “silent” majority. We all need to speak up before America goes down altogether. We all need to get involved. Remember, it’s our tax money they are using against us. Silent no more!

  11. If you want to earn extra income every month … look no further! This is a great opportunity for anyone to earn $ 22,537 to $ 29,468 a month while working in their spare time on a home computer … I do this for 2 months and last month I earned my first salary! !!!

  12. The CNN peeps can look every where for a job but America was & is Right about their news. The Lemons, Cuomus & Coopers are Tappered out with left handed propaganda. Farewell to thee old storytellers. Welcome honest journalists.

  13. Because real lovers of our country have opened their eyes and see how much CNN lies through the entire PRESIDENT Trump tenure and are bored to hell with listening to boring Biden being only negative in his reading of the teleprompter and doing nothing positive for our country or CITIZENS. This, while he dictates with executive orders as he stated was how dictators ruled a country. The truth about all the fake news CNN put out about PRESIDENT Trump is the biggest issue.

  14. Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo and Anderson Cooper are all frauds, fakes and liars. The USA was much better off with President Trump than the commie loving Biden Crime Family and his side kick Barry Obama. CNN is the Communist News Network known as the arm of the Democratic Party. The democrats love BLM and ANTIFA to cause mayhem, riots and kill people. Dump all the democrats and be very Leary of unions who give dark money to the democrats just like the IBEW does

  15. many are shaking heads that this network survives with the lack luster talent it employs.
    Hopefully soon it will be off the air

  16. marquee talent ? att has been trying to dump CNN mid 2020 they’ve lowered the price too .all that marquee talent will probably be getting pink slips and not as their favorite fashion accessary either ,of course they might get a boost in ratings if Cuomo came out his closet on air ,and then him and Don discuss the the uses of the giant q-tip again

  17. I would probably watch other news channels, but they have nothing but propaganda, lies and a lot of BS. I will never watch Lemon or Cuomo, because they are too much in love with themselves and are very racist!! Cuomo should never have said anything about police should start killing white kids!! That was a very stupid thing for him or anybody else to say, and he should be reprimanded for that!! A VERY CONCERNED SENIOR CITIZEN!!! They never want this country to come together , talking like that!!! JJUST SAYING!!!

  18. Don Lemon isn’t real bright so don’t expect much from him. When nearly all your news highlights are bogus people catch on and move on never to return.
