Even the Donald Trump trial can’t save CNN.

CNN’s primetime lineup hit a low in the key demographic last week.

The primetime lineup averaged only 83,900 in the key demographic – Fox’s primetime shows averaged 186,000.

Fox News reported:

CNN’s long-struggling primetime lineup hit a significant viewership low in a critical category last week despite the landmark New York v. Trump trial dominating the news cycle.

CNN’s primetime lineup of “Anderson Cooper 360,” “The Source with Kaitlan Collins,” and “CNN NewsNight with Abby Phillip” managed only 83,000 nightly viewers in the advertiser-coveted demographic of adults age 25-54 from May 13-19. The dismal total tied the network’s 2023 Thanksgiving week for its smallest audience in the critical category since 1991.

By comparison, Fox News programs “Jesse Watters Primetime,” “Hannity,” and “Gutfeld!” averaged 186,000 demo viewers to crush CNN’s audience by over 100,000 people between the ages 25-54.

CNN’s primetime lineup had a smaller audience among the demo than 23 different basic cable options, including FXX, MTV, Hallmark Channel, Discovery, A&E, Adult Swim, Comedy Central, TLC, HGTV, Food Network. ESPN2, and Bravo, in addition to Fox News and MSNBC.
