This impeachment really started as something amazing for Dems.
Although as time has gone on, the trial has suffered one disaster after another, and now it’s looking about as stable as Pelosi’s neck tuck.
But it’s not just the Democrats this is hurting, it’s also sinking the already abysmal CNN even further down the drain.
While both CNN and Fox News saw an increase, their gains were pathetic in comparison to Fox’s:
Fox News dominated cable news coverage with a total audience of 4.2 million viewers between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET, followed by MSNBC (1.3 million viewers) and CNN (1.0 million viewers).
Compared to Friday’s coverage, MSNBC saw its total viewership decline slightly, down 178,000 viewers, while CNN and Fox News saw increases on Saturday. CNN’s total audience climbed modestly (up 29,000 viewers), while Fox News Channel saw a dramatic jump, up by 2.8 million viewers. [Forbes]
The hosts at Fox who saw the highest increase during the impeachment trial were Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, where they both saw their highest ratings in the history of their shows.
Tucker Carlson Tonight and The Ingraham Angle averaged 4.1 million and 3.8 million viewers last week, respectively, according to Nielsen Media Research. Their ratings bump corresponded with the Senate’s impeachment trial of President Trump after being accused of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. He is expected to be acquitted in a vote on Wednesday.
Sean Hannity’s 9 p.m. EST show had more viewers than both of Carlson’s and Ingraham’s 8 p.m. EST and 10 p.m. EST shows with an average of 4.3 million viewers a night; however, that was only good for the second-best week in Hannity history.
Fox News’s prime-time lineup collectively beat every other cable network by more than 1.5 million viewers. MSNBC came in second with an average audience of 1,588,000 viewers. CNN came in at fifth with slightly more than a million viewers a night. [Washington Examiner]
If Democrats need to know where they stand with the American people, all they would have to do is look at these figures.
These people are doomed.
