In May, CNN's average audience in prime time was a measly 761,000 viewers, reported Breitbart News, based on ratings data from In April, CNN's prime time audience was already very low at 767,000 viewers.

In prime time, CNN could not even break one million viewers and its daytime numbers were extremely low at 559,000 viewers. 

"For comparison purposes, Fox News earned three times as many prime time viewers (2.34 million) and more than twice as many total day viewers (1.34 million)," reported Breitbart.  "What’s more, when compared to this same month last year, Fox lost none of its primetime viewers and only four percent of its total day viewers."

"Things are so bad at CNN that even though it is only competing with two other cable news networks, the fake news outlet’s top-rated program, Cuomo Prime Time, crash-landed in 25th place averaging only 938,000 viewers," said Breitbart.  "That’s right, the top 24 slots are all filled with shows from Fox News and MSNBC — and Fox holds seven of the top ten."

Liberal reporter Jake Tapper is in a rough place. His late afternoon program "landed in a pathetic 36th place with only 706,000 average viewers, which is 55,000 fewer viewers than CNN’s prime time average," reported Breitbart.  "Among CNN shows, Tapper used to regularly place in the top three as far as total viewers. Now he’s in sixth place among his fake news colleagues."

"CNN’s flagship morning show, New Day, is a laughingstock with just 485,000 average viewers," said Breitbart.
