The ratings are in for CNN’s marathon town hall on Climate Change and it wasn’t good:
DAILY CALLER – CNN’s seven hour Climate Change town hall Wednesday night was not enough to propel the network past Fox News and MSNBC in the day’s cable television ratings.
During the same time period that Democratic presidential candidates were discussing their plans to combat climate change with a town hall audience, Fox News pulled in 2.5 million viewers compared to just 1.1 million for CNN, according to Nielsen Media Research.
Fox News also continued to dominate prime-time, averaging nearly 3.2 million viewers, compared to roughly 2.1 million for MSNBC and 1.4 million for CNN.
The marathon started at 5pm and went for seven hours and they only averaged less than 1.4 million? Wow. So much for Climate Change being the huge issue that Democrats keep pretending it to be.
It’s not surprising that Fox News beat CNN, as they routinely do. But what is somewhat surprising is that even with their special programing, CNN couldn’t beat MSNBC during primetime!
I’m not sure whether this speaks worse of CNN or the Democratic presidential candidates. Maybe both, LOL!
