The Cable News Network saw a mass exodus of viewers in the first week of 2022 when compared to the numbers of last year, according to Nielsen ratings.

CNN has been hit by a barrage of damaging scandals over the last year, and the ratings are showing it.

For the week of Jan. 3, CNN saw an average daily viewer count of only 548,000 viewers. That represents an 81% drop from their average viewer count in the same week from last year, when they garnered 2.7 million viewers.

The network saw its greatest ratings the week of the attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 by some supporters of former President Donald Trump who were objecting to the official results of the 2020 presidential election. That week marked the first time in years of Fox News domination that CNN and MSNBC defeated the ratings behemoth.

A year later, the former hierarchy among cable news networks has been revived.

Worse still for CNN was the network’s ratings among primetime viewers, where it lost 89% in a key demographic year-over-year. Among viewers aged 18 to 49-years-old, CNN lost 91% year-over-year.

CNN has faced brutal criticism over their support of anchor Chris Cuomo, brother of disgraced former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The younger Cuomo offered joking interviews of his older politician brother while New York City experienced a horrific spike in coronavirus infections. The anchor was later fired after admitting that he used his contacts to help his brother find out about accusers claiming he had sexually assaulted them.

The network was also excoriated after a CNN producer was charged with allegedly luring and groomin underage girls in order to be sexually assaulted. The FBI called the allegations “deeply disturbing.”
