CNN apparently now isn't even its home country America's news leader, let alone the world's!
Fox gains more viewers in the US, right?
So much for International viewers getting an International perspective on international news. With these US domestic simulcasts, we just get a US perspective...
It's not great for an International channel.
Fox News is the top cable channel for overall viewership with around 1.4m viewers, MSNBC is second with 1.1m, while CNN doesn’t even pass a million anymore (778,000; which places it in 4th overall).
Those ratings are much lower than the most recent prime time figures I can find, perhaps they're the full day averages?:-
Fox News averaged 2.5 million viewers per night in 2019, the most in its 23-year history, making the network the most-watched channel on basic cable.
According to Nielsen Media Research, Fox News beat out ESPN, with its 1.78 million viewers, and third-place MSNBC, which drew an average of 1.75 million viewers in prime time. Fox topped its cable competitors for a fourth straight year, Nielsen said.
CNN finished 22nd, with an average of 972,000 viewers per night.
The top five shows in cable news for 2019 were Fox's "Hannity," with 3.3 million, followed by "Tucker Carlson Tonight," with 3.1 million.
MSNBC's "Rachel Maddow Show" was third, with 2.78 million, followed by Fox's "The Ingraham Angle," with 2.57 million, and "The Five" at 2.55m.
Carlson and Maddow switched places in the 2019 rankings compared to the previous year, when Maddow claimed the No. 2 ranking.
Among broadcast networks, CBS took the top spot with an average of 7.14 million viewers in prime time. NBC was second, with 6.33 million, followed by ABC, with 5.19 million. Fox TV was fourth, at 4.62 million, but it was the only broadcast network among the four to increase viewership from 2018.
