CNN's Ratings Fell Below MSNBC Last Week

By    |   Tuesday, 12 May 2015 06:15 PM

CNN's ratings plummeted last week despite a recent increase in the first quarter of 2015, in which the cable news channel held at second place.

CNN fell below MSNBC for primetime viewership, with a total of 405,000 viewers, below MSNBC's 451,000 viewers, according to Nielsen ratings statistics, Mediaite is reporting.

The cable news channel came in 38th when ranked among all cable channels, behind OWN, TruTV and Hallmark. MSNBC ranked 33rd and Fox was at number two, with an average of 1.58 million viewers during the same week.

This marks the lowest ranking CNN has had in 2015, with a 65 percent drop from their highest-rated week for primetime viewership, when the cable news channel was in eighth place.

In April, CNN had had its 10th straight month in the number two spot behind Fox News, TVNewser reports. 

Hot news items for last week included the "Draw Muhammad" contest shooting in Texas, and Republican presidential campaign announcements from Carly Fiorina, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, and Dr. Ben Carson.

CNN came in at 26th place for total day viewership, ahead of MSNBC, which was in 31st place. Fox News was in fourth place for that time slot among all cable channels.

Fox has the edge for primetime viewership in the coveted 25-54 age demographic with 314,000 viewers. CNN had 143,000 viewers, and MSNBC had 115,000 viewers in this key demographic.
