Cable News Viewership Goes Down…WAY DOWN

| Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinuteAnderson CooperSad SadBusiness Blitz

cable news viewership is down

Guess people are getting their news on Perezhilton.com elsewhere. Ha!

A new study indicates that viewership for CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News dropped "13.7 percent in aggregate for a sharper decline than any other sector." Ouch!

In primetime, median viewership was down 16 percent, which is an average decline of 3.2 million viewers! Daytime viewership was down 12 percent.

As far as specific news channels are concerned, CNN dropped 37% in viewership to 564,000 viewers. Fox News dropped 11%, and MSNBC was down 5%.

Why isn't anybody watching CNN? They've got the Silver Fox!

Ah well…

Do U still tune in for Cable News? Or do U get your news here elsewhere?

    I don't get it. I'm watching CNN (Anderson) right now! Usually do.

    Al Jazeera is basically the only real news out there nowadays.
    Anderson Cooper should probably see if he can get a gig on some all-gay news channel where he can do hurricane coverage and advertise hair spray products at the same time.
    It seems that when he attempts to coverage hard news, he gets punched out and cries like a little girl, whilst Al Jazeera lesbians seem to have no problem going where no gay man should consider going.

    People are sick of pundits screaming at eachother about their OPINIONS not to mention one particular "news source that blatantly lies, gets caught and lies again the next day. I agree taht Aljeerza (English) is far better than our corporate run media.

    People are sick and tired of the government run news services and the group worship of Imam Obama.



  8. 8

    since when you can believe the news? those channels think about nothing but making profit out of advertizing and instead of reporting, they grill anyone they want for various reasons in their hidden agendas. get manipulated, get stupid, kill my creativity and alienate myself from the world watching tv? no, thank you!

    Mainstream corporate news? Lol.



  11. 11

    Fucking FOX NEWS is the biggest joke of the century.



  12. 12

    All those networks/pundits feed you the news as they want you to hear it. Who needs it? There are too many outlets nowdays for them to hold the monopoly on the news and how its distorted.



  13. 13

    I turn it off when one station starts bashing the other station. MSNBC 's Ed,Maddow,Turk,& Chris Matthews is the worse. Fox's Bill O'Reilly just brags about his ratings & knocks other stations. O'Reilly calls people "pin heads" and Matthews calls people "balloon heads". They both have an obsession with "HEADS". So jr high school!!! Anderson Cooper lost his creditability as a SERIOUS news reporter by hanging with bully "comedian" Kathy Griffin. Viewers want the NEWS and are tired of their personal immature brawling and name calling.

    Al Jazeera is a pretty good news network. I watch my stuff online on the most part only because I got rid of my cable tv.



  15. 15

    CNN just keeps repeating the same story & videos over and over again. That plus there's so many commercials you spend most of your time waiting for something to watch. Add to that the fake intensity in everybody's voice as they're reporting stuff ….
    I'd rather just watch the raw footage on YouTube.

    ANDERSON COOPER SHOULD HELP OPRAH OUT. I HEAR "OWN" IS TANKING. MAYBE HE CAN GET HIS "OWN" LITTLE NEWS PUPPET SHOW OVER THERE. #NOTAWINNER

    CNN switched to "Ethnic in America" wall-to-wall programming a few years back and viewership tanked. You have to be very PC when explaining this fact otherwise you will instantly be branded a racist. Truth is, ethnic specials are O.K. if there is a point, but CNN has lost all credibility with it's non-stop (and boring) programming. Time to balance things out and hire some decent anchors. Anderson, uh, um, Cooper, uh, uh, um, um is good looking but his presentation style SUCKS BIG TIME. Campbell Brown, Don Lemon, Wolf Blitzer, and almost every single political anchor/reporter are awful. And Piers Morgan, after one of the most expensive launches in TV history, is average at best. Time to shake things up and start over!

    YAY AMERICANS! GOOD JOB GUYS! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! Put these lying jackasses out of work or force them to tell the TRUTH! get your news from truthful sources…not people who are lying and sensationalizing everything. mainstream media is all about brainwashing the public, the less you watch it, the better your brain will work.



  19. 19

    Because they hardly ever report "news". Go and look at the headlines on WSJ.com or NYTimes.com and then compare them to CNN.com. Bit of a difference, right?



  20. 20

    People have stopped watching CNN because they're getting sick of the liberals and their lies. They're finally realizing that Obama doesn't know what he's doing and voting for him was a mistake.



  21. 21

    CAUSE CNN IS BS!!!
    They dont report news. They report crap.
    Stupid antisemetic "news" source. ya right.



  22. 22

    No jobs=people cutting stuff that they can't afford, like cable…

    If they tell the truth, and dig up real stories instead of reading talking points, and it proves to be the truth, people might come back.
