A New Day, a New Low


When Jeff Zucker was hired at CNN, some thought he could turn the network around. Early on, Zucker set his sights on fixing the morning show and bringing ratings to CNN in the AM.

From the looks of things, he's not doing very well.

On Monday, CNN's morning show, 'New Day' tanked in the ratings. The show pulled just 45,000 viewers in the demo and only 196,000 viewers overall.

CNN has spent millions in hiring staff, a new set and promoting New Day. 

Over on their sister network HLN, the show goes on with little promotion and the staff is tiny compared to the New Day staff. Yet..... Morning Express with Robin Meade pulled 117,000 viewers in the demo and 216,000 overall.

Here's a breakdown of the numbers from Monday:
