As CNN’s ratings continue to plummet, Fox News’ program “Tucker Carlson Tonight” now draws three times the audience of CNN’s competing cable news program “Anderson Cooper 360”.
On Friday night, Adweek reported that Tucker Carlson received just over 2.5 million viewers, continuing a strong ratings performance that Big League Politics has tracked for months. Carlson’s show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight”, has steadily risen in the ratings and now competes head to head with Fox News’ “Hannity”, a program and host who have enjoyed the same time slot for a decade.
CNN, the far left network, is not faring nearly as well in the ratings competition.
Both broadcasting at at 8 p.m., CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” drew in only 839,000 viewers on Friday night, continuing a dismal trend of low ratings for the once respected cable news network.
In fact, with 2.5 million viewers, Carlson’s audience is now almost precisely three times as large as Cooper’s.
The rest of the night did not improve for CNN, either.
Both Sean Hannity and CNN had special events during the 9 p.m. hour on Friday, but Hannity received just over 2.6 million viewers, while CNN only garnered 896,000. Then, at 10 p.m., Fox News’ Laura Ingraham had just under 2 million viewers, while CNN’s ratings took another dip to 858,000 total viewers.
This total ratings collapse during prime time American television is likely why CNN is being forced to downsize.
The network previously allowed 100 employees to take voluntary buyouts and leave their jobs three weeks ago, and just days ago it fired most of its health department in another cost saving initiative.
Just today it was reported that the network will also fire all of its London-based correspondents, and allow them to reapply for their jobs.
DEVELOPING: As ratings plummet, CNN has been forced to fire essentially all of their London correspondents, shutting down London coverage/programs, asking them to re-apply for a job.

As ratings continue to collapse for CNN, there is no clear sense of where rock bottom may be for the previously well-watched network.

WATCH: Trump ROASTS Acosta: “Go Ahead Jim, Try Another One”
The President shut down Acosta’s inane question.
President Donald Trump shut down CNN showman Jim Acosta’s attempts to insinuate strange conspiracies at Friday’s Presidential press briefing on the response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. Acosta demanded that the President reveal the exact location of Dr. Anthony Fauci, apparently believing that the federal medical advisor had been shut out of the coronavirus response.
President Trump had been discussing attempts to marshal medical facemasks from 3M, combating attempts by the nominally American company to export the needed equipment to foreign countries for profit. Acosta tried to divert from the relevant topic at hand with irrelevant questions about the participants of the press briefing.
“Where is Doctor Fauci?”
Watch the exchange here:
“Every time he’s not here… Sometimes I’ll ask him to come because that’s the first question that you and a couple of others from the fake news establishment ask… We’re doing great together.”
Of course the President isn’t required to account for the whereabouts of Dr. Fauci at all times. Key federal personnel overseeing the pandemic response have a wide range of responsibilities that prevent them from being present at every single daily press briefing.
Trump went on to line up Acosta for what likely would’ve been another political and irrelevant question, savagely telling the CNN operative to “Go ahead Jim, try another one.”
As Jim Acosta tries repeatedly to derail attempts to provide the American public with vital information about the federal coronavirus response, it’s probably worth considering temporarily (or permanently) suspending his press credentials in order to allow the near-daily briefings to focus upon policy substance.
Acosta has been suspended from the White House press pool before, following disruptive attempts to derail substantial briefings with political nonsense.
