CNN Ratings Collapse: CNN Now Losing To Nick-At-Nite Re-runs In Prime Time Ratings War 1

More American’s tuned in last week to watch re-runs of Full House and Friends on Nick At Nite than watched CNN’s prime time lineup – embarrassing.

In fact, more American’s would rather watch old movies — jam-packed with commercials — on TBS and USA, as well as the Home Garden Network, which features shows like Fixer Upper and Flip Or Flop, than tune into CNN’s shows.

“According to cable ratings from the week of June 26-July 2, CNN’s viewership of its primetime shows was ranked significantly lower than its competitors like Fox News and MSNBC, which place first and second respectively. Clocking in at No. 10 on the list, CNN fell behind HGTV, Nick At Nite, History Channel, and ESPN — the sports network that’s been hemorrhaging viewers for months,” The Federalist reports.

CNN features prime-time shows like Erin Burnett Out Front, Anderson Cooper 360 and CNN Tonight With Don Lemon.

The ratings come amid the feud between President Donald Trump and CNN, which he calls “fake news.” The network has had a series of humiliating debacles over recent weeks , but despite being beat by Nick At Nite, CNN “clocked its most watched second quarter in its history,” Deadline reported.

That shows you just how low their rating were before — and is clear evidence that the third-place cable news network sees bashing Trump nonstop as the way to boost flagging ratings.

CNN’s ratings nosedive corresponds with the network’s ongoing feud with President Donald Trump. Last week, Trump tweeted out a GIF of himself appearing to pummel a wrestler with CNN’s logo superimposed over the latter’s face. The network has covered the tweet nearly nonstop ever since. It also went after the Redditor who made the GIF and threatened to dox him unless he apologized and promised to never say anything CNN dislikes again — a move that drew much criticism and may have been illegal.

On July 4, CNN published a fake quote from Abraham Lincoln. On Thursday morning, the network falsely claimed German Prime Minister Angela Merkel had chosen the location of the G20 summit to sabotage Trump.
