CNN Ratings Take a Major Beating, Fall Below Newsmax’s

On Friday, CNN’s primetime average total viewership reportedly fell below Newsmax.

Newsmax attracted 357,000 viewers, compared to the network’s average of 335,000 during prime time.

With 1.4 million viewers, Fox News took top place, followed by MSNBC with 1,084 million.

According to the source, CNN outperformed Newsmax in the crucial 25-54 age group with an average of 87,000 views.

With 109,000 viewers, Fox News outperformed MSNBC in the demo, while MSNBC averaged 98,000. Newsmax finished fourth with a 45,000 viewing average.

According to the source, the trend persisted at 10 p.m., when CNN’s “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace” had 263,000 views and Newsmax’s “Greg Kelly Reports” received 278,000.

At the end of 2022, CNN will have attracted its lowest audience ever due to declining ratings throughout the previous year.
