For four years, cable news channel CNN enjoyed record ratings as a constant critic of former President Donald Trump’s administration.
Now that Trump is gone, the “one-trick pony” act has dried up. CNN’s ratings have plummeted a staggering 54 percent — including a 60 percent decline in the critical 25-60 age demographic.
In fact, the ratings fall is so bad that insiders are reportedly worried CNN is facing collapse.
The network averaged 627,000 viewers in the key 25-60 age demographic for the month leading up to Inauguration Day.
Since then, they’re averaging just 244,000 since President Joe Biden officially took office.
“CNN’s liberal primetime hosts Anderson Cooper, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon haven’t been able to keep their audiences under the new administration, either. CNN averaged 3.1 million viewers from 8-11 p.m. from Dec. 28 through Inauguration Day but only 1.4 million since for a whopping 55-percent decline,” Fox News reported. “Over the same time period, CNN’s primetime lineup lost 63 percent of its viewers among the crucial demo.”

CNN isn’t the only cable news network seeing a sudden, sharp decline in ratings. MSNBC has reportedly lost over 30 percent of it’s viewers since Trump has left office. Even Fox News has also seen a decline, though only in single digits.
Still, one of CNN’s most well-paid stars said it was worth the network’s potential folding to have Trump out of office.
Controversial CNN star Don Lemon addressed the ratings collapse and his concerns during a recent podcast.
“No. I’m not worried about it … Trump was a horrible person. And he was terrible for the country,” Lemon said. “And it is better for all… for the world that he is no longer the President of the United States.”
“So if that means that cable news ratings go down? Aww. So I’m not really that concerned about it,” he said. “I would prefer that my ratings go down and Trump not be in office, then my ratings be sky-high and him be there. That’s the honest truth.”
