I know this probably doesn't come as a great surprise to anyone who has tuned into any cable news as of late. Lowly CNN continues to circle the bowl as it plummets even further in the ratings, finishing a distant seventh place behind HGTV, USA, the History Channel, and even TBS and it's 80's movie reruns in the most recent ratings. CNN’s direct competitors, Fox News and MSNBC, easily put the cable news channel loser in the weeds.
CNN’s ace primetime lineup hosts Anderson Cooper and Fredo Cuomo have to be biting their pillows at night being beaten handley by the History Channel which includes show like Ancient Aliens, which delves into the conspiracy theories about space aliens and the illuminati breeding reptilian mind reading shapeshifting pyramid builders and stuff. The History Channel had 1.06 million viewers in primetime while CNN scored 992,000 average viewers, most of whom were probably stuck at an airport with nothing else to watch. The network didn't fare much better in the ratings for its daytime programming, finishing in sixth place, lagging far behind Fox News, MSNBC, and Spongebob Squarepants.
