CNN’s Brian Stelter’s ratings continue to plummet after his Father’s Day episode of ‘Reliable Sources’ drew only 656,000 viewers in his least-watched showing of 2021.
It marks the the 12th consecutive week Stelter’s show failed to hit one million views.
In comparison, Fox News, which Stelter has been critical of, airs ‘MediaBuzz’ during Stelter’s direct timeslot. That show averages 1.14 million viewers to top ‘Reliable Sources’ by 74 percent, Fox News reported.
Reliable Sources, which airs weekly on Sundays, has suffered a disastrous ratings drop since interest from early this year peaked for all cable news amid the Capitolriot and Inauguration Day.
So far in June, Stelter’s ratings are down 57 percent overall since January, and 67 percent in the key age demographic prized by advertisers, 25-54, according to Nielsen data reviewed by DailyMail.com.
Biden’s presidency has seemingly zapped CNN’s ratings.
The Washington Times reported CNN as a whole lost 44 percent of its total audience since the last week of January, but Stelter in particular has been the target of scrutiny.
