The fallout on the far left’s Russia hoax has become evident in television news ratings the past few weeks. It is more than obvious millions of Americans who watch the cable news have become disgusted by those networks who perpetrated the collusion nonsense for two years.
As a direct result, Fox News Channel dominated basic cable for April, beating news, sports, and entertainment networks in total day and primetime viewers. Meanwhile, CNN continued to melt in the ratings like the ‘Wizard of Oz’ witch.
According to Nielsen Media Research, FNC garnered 2.4 million viewers in primetime and finished first among all basic cable stations for the third month in a row, and 1.4 million viewers in total day to top basic cable for the 34th consecutive month.
For the 208th month in a row, FNC also beat left-leaning CNN and MSNBC across both categories, while CNN marked its lowest-rated month in total day viewers since October 2015, and since August 2015 in the key demographic of viewers age 25-54.
On a more focused level, “Hannity” finished the month of April as the highest-rated cable news program in total viewers while “Tucker Carlson Tonight” ranked number two, both outpacing MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in key categories.
Both “Tucker Carlson Tonight” (8 p.m.) and “Hannity” (9 p.m.) also beat the NBA Playoffs airing on ESPN and TNT and wrestling’s “Monday Night Raw” airing on USA Network in total viewers.
Additionally, FNC’s regularly scheduled programming beat out CNN’s five-hour town hall event on April 22, bringing in 2.3 million viewers and 380,000 in the 25-54 age demo while CNN came in last in total viewers with 1.2 million and 371,00 in the demo for the night.
FNC averaged 2.4 million in primetime, beating CNN’s 767,000 and MSNBC’s 1,660,000 total viewers. For the 25-54 demo, FNC brought in 389,000, topping CNN’s 198,000 and MSNBC’s 255,000.
For CNN and MSNBC, this means millions of lost advertising revenue as their audience share swindles dramatically. It is further confirmation of the utter disdain many viewers have for the two-year-long Russia hoax they were subjected to 24/7 by the two failing networks.
