CNN Dropped Below “Pawn Stars” Channel in Ratings

What is somewhat surprising, and incredibly laughable, is that CNN — the formerly vaunted crown jewel of the establishment media — has sunk so low in the ratings that they are losing out to other basic cable networks in terms of prime time viewers, networks with decidedly less important topics to air than the serious news of the day.

The Daily Caller noted that while Fox ranked number one in total prime time viewers for the week of August 6-12 — 2.18 million viewers on the average evening — and were followed closely by MSNBC — 1.75 million viewers — both were trailed significantly by CNN, which averaged only 992,000 viewers during the prime time hours.

That placed CNN at seventh on the list, behind such basic cable networks as Home and Garden Television (1.33 million), USA Network (1.25 million), the History Channel (1.06 million) and TBS Network (1.02 million).

Essentially, CNN’s prime time stars like Anderson Cooper and Chris Cuomo are drawing fewer viewers than History Channel shows such as “Pawn Stars,” “American Pickers,” “Counting Cars,” “Mountain Men,” and perhaps funniest of all, “Ancient Aliens.”

Pawn Stars and Ancient Aliens are less predictable.

CNN needs to finally transition from fake news with solemn, fake professor talking heads to full-on trash.

Being skank, tawdry and sensational will draw those ratings right back up.

I wonder what Wolf Blitzer would look like in a dress, hitting blow up dolls of Trump with a folding chair.

I feel like that about most of the media lately. I used to trust them, but holy shit have they turned partisan and untrustworthy.

Especially sad about the NY Times and NPR. I used to love them both but can't stand either one anymore. I literally turned on NPR tonight and heard a story about racism within 10 seconds. Turned it off again. They should really rename the station "Racism Radio", or maybe someone can work Racism into the NPR letters.
