CNN can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to Tucker Carlson. Every night, he manages to embarrass them, no matter what time it is! From exposing CNN’s corrupt behavior to ratings, Tucker destroys CNN on a nightly basis. He seems to live rent free in the mind of CNN.
It’s no wonder CNN is feeling the pressure as Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s 1 a.m. reruns prove to be almost more popular than CNN’s own ratings. Fox consistently beats CNN in multiple time slots and with just his 1 a.m. reruns, Tucker Carlson has managed to beat every program but two on CNN– an impressive achievement! Goes to show wokeness is dying right before our eyes.
According to The Daily Wire, Tucker Carlson’s prime time show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” airs on weeknights at 1 a.m. Eastern Time — and his late-night rerun still draws a larger audience in the key demographic than all but two of CNN’s shows.
Nielsen Media Research reports that Carlson’s 1 a.m. Repeat draws a total audience of 751,000 — putting him ahead of every live CNN offering save for three: “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” with 798,000 viewers; “Erin Burnett Outfront,” with 800,000 viewers; and “Anderson Cooper 360,” with 802,000 viewers.
Carlson does even better in the 25-54 age group. In that age range, his rerun attracts 154,000 viewers, besting every CNN show except two. In the key demo, Cooper draws 181,000 viewers, while Burnett draws 183,000.
Carlson’s prime time show averaged 288,000 viewers in the key demographic for the week ending on Friday, December 16th, compared to CNN’s Cooper at 117,000 and MSNBC’s Chris Hayes at 124,000.
Only another show on his own network beat Carlson on cable news. During the same period, Fox News’ daily drive-time panel show “The Five” was watched by 332,000 people in that age bracket.
“The Five” drew an average audience of 3.432 million people despite airing before typical primetime hours at 5 p.m. Eastern Time. Nevertheless, Carlson topped the 25-54 age demographic with an average of 523,000 viewers each night.
After years of turning off the majority of America with political bias, CNN may regain some reputation as one of the premier providers only if the new Chief, Licht does what needs to be done—and that’s restoring journalistic integrity. Otherwise, CNN will remain a ratings laggard, falling even further behind its competitors like Fox with Tucker Carlson and other prime time TV shows airing reruns. No matter the time of day, Americans need honest journalism they can trust. And it’s up to CNN and Licht if they want to be part of that.
