It seems that CNN’s attempt to compete in morning TV has been an absolute disaster, with their latest show “CNN This Morning” being crowned the network’s worst-rated morning show in over a decade.
Don Lemon, Kaitlan Collins, and Poppy Harlow have not managed to build any kind of chemistry between them and their liberal agenda has even resulted in on-air scuffles. It seems that no matter what CNN tries to do their sinking ship cannot be saved.
Western Journal reports, despite CNN’s best efforts, its new show “CNN This Morning” has become the network’s lowest-rated morning show in nearly a decade.
The show’s hosts – Don Lemon, Kaitlan Collins, and Poppy Harlow – have failed to connect with viewers, leading to an embarrassing new low for a network that has skidded off the tracks since the Trump administration took office.
Besides lacking chemistry, Lemon has clashed with Collins on air as well as reportedly gone after her behind closed doors.
Despite the on-air drama, CNN has not been able to draw more viewers to the train wreck.
The Wrap reported Friday that the network’s decision to replace “New Day” with a morning circus resulted in its worst morning viewership numbers in a decade.
Using Nielsen data, the outlet reported Lemon, Harlow and Collins have had the lowest viewership among adults 25-54, the key demographic for cable news, and the second-lowest total viewership among each iteration of the network’s morning programming since June 2013..”
The low ratings must have been getting to Don Lemon, as recently he canceled a tv break to yell at his co host.
The independent reports, CNN aired an interview with James Comer moments before a commercial break was delayed by an exasperated Don Lemon.
The decision of Mr Comer to favorably cite The New York Post in his interview with colleague Kaitlin Collins irritated Lemon, one of the network’s most recognizable anchors.
Later in the show, Lemon praised Collins for her interviewing skills after conspicuously failing to do so with Harlow.
CNN’s ‘CNN This Morning’ has been officially crowned the worst morning show in a decade for the network, cinching its position as one of the most unsuccessful shows on TV. With awful co-host chemistry between Don Lemon, Kaitlan Collins, and Poppy Harlow, plus Lemon’s reported behind-closed door attempts to go after Collins, it’s easy to see why viewers have been tuning out. It’s an embarrassing low for the network which is still trying to find its footing in the wake of Trump’s White House years amidst a growing liberal agenda. Truly, CNN is sinking what was once reliably bad news through terrible television – proving it really does suck!
