It was likely all for the wrong reasons, but viewers tuned into CNN circus act Don Lemon on Tuesday night.
Lemon was in Baltimore covering the unrest and he helped CNN pull in a rare win in the ratings demo at 10PM.
Mediaite writes that CNN had the highest-rated hour in the 25-54 demo across all of cable news with 1.144M viewers. During that same hour, Fox News’ Hannity came in second with 853K and MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell was third with 280K. CNN beat Fox News in the primetime demo for the second consecutive night, 769K to 767K.
In total viewers, Lemon’s 2.719M came close to beating Sean Hannity‘s 2.782M.
It seems viewers are tuning into Lemon to see when the train will fall of the tracks. It also appears that even some harden Fox News viewers are growing tired of Sean Hannity's spewing of meanness and hate.
