Fox News Leads Viewership for Inauguration with 8M Viewers, CNN’s Numbers Are Laughable!

CNN is feeling the effects of being labeled fake news by President Donald Trump, and it’s not over!

The overnight numbers are in, and Nielsen is showing CNN hitting the bottom for viewership on the along with MSNBC. Fox News clearly was the winner beating out broadcast networks too.

CNN is currently under a lawsuit from black employees and trying to turn the narrative around on fake news by labeling established websites that hit them hard during the election as sources not to trust.

It seems that has backfired and their viewership is dropping like sand in an hourglass. It’s only a matter of time before they change up and fire people.


From Associated Press:

Nielsen estimates 31 million viewers watched TV coverage of President Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday.

That audience total, measuring continuous coverage by 12 broadcast and cable networks, soundly beat the 20.6 million who viewed President Barack Obama’s second inauguration in 2013. But a president’s second swearing-in typically logs a drop-off in viewership. Obama’s first inauguration in 2009 was seen by 37.8 million people.

Fox News Channel was by far the most-watched network of all, cable or broadcast, with 8.43 million viewers. Cable rivals CNN had 2.46 million, and MSNBC had 1.35 million.

NBC was the most-watched broadcast network with 5.8 million viewers, followed by ABC (4.9 million) and CBS (4.6 million).

The most-watched inauguration since 1969 was President Ronald Reagan’s first oath-taking in 1981, which was seen by 41.8 million people.

The debates between Trump and Hillary Clinton were watched by record numbers of viewers, with 84 million people tuning into the highest-rated first debate in September 2016. However, daytime television has far fewer viewers than prime time.

Are you laughing at CNN’s demise? Believe me; they got more coming as long as they continue to act out and as the opposition. They are not willing to change their direction, so expect more to drop off soon.
