CNN's Town Hall Flops


While CNN seems more than giddy that a large number of Democrats are entering the 2020 race for the White House, it seems the public is not interested.

On Wednesday, CNN held a “Town Hall” with Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker and it was the network’s second-lowest rated town hall they’ve presented all year.

The CNN special pulled in just 929,000 total viewers and 269,000 in the 25-54 demo according to Nielsen.

Not only did CNN not crack the million viewer mark, MSNBC pulled in over 2 million viewers during the time period and Fox News topped 3 million.

And yet, somehow, Jeff Zucker still has a job.

Here’s a look at the hard numbers:


FNC’s The Ingraham Angle/FOX News @ Night: 3,009,000 in P2+ (553,000 in 25-54)
MSNBC’s Last Word/ The 11th Hour: 2,010,000 in P2+ (294,000 in 25-54)
CNN Town Hall: 929,000 in P2+ (269,000 in 25-54)
