The average number of CNN viewers during prime time has decreased to little over 500,000, while Fox News continues to dominate, according to new ratings data revealed on Wednesday.
The leftist network, which touts itself as “first and foremost facts,” has consistently struggled with popularity. The network’s much-touted streaming program CNN+ was discontinued in April, only weeks after its launch, due to its failure to attract new viewers.
According to a survey by Mediaite, CNN’s prime time programming averages 517 000 people.

With an average of 1.18 million prime time viewers, the liberal MSNBC also dominated CNN, more than doubling CNN’s audience.
