NRO reports the “CNN averaged only 548,000 viewers during the week of January 3, a steep 80 percent decline from the 2.7 million it averaged over the same period in 2021.
Per the report:
Some of that decline can be attributed to the drama of January 6 last year, which helped the cable news network attract more viewers than any other day in its history. This year, CNN used the anniversary of the capital riot to try and replicate that success, hosting a live show from the capital grounds.
Fox News and MSNBC both finished well ahead of CNN over the same time period, averaging 1,408,000 and 746,000 viewers, respectively.
