Cable News Viewership Goes Down…WAY DOWN

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?

Keith Olbermann To Be A TV Comedy Writer?

Filed under: TV News

We didn't see this one coming.

Keith Olbermann's next gig could be writing a TV comedy project…with Aaron Sorkin?

Really??

Sorkin has had a pilot script in the works about a cable news show and is in talks with Olbermann to get his input.

He reportedly spent time with Olbermann on set while writing the pilot as well as sitting in with Chris Matthews and Fox News.

This could actually work. And we'd still get a fresh new project with the Olbermann spin.
