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.
CNN’s Jeff Zucker Is Heard Spiking Hunter Biden Laptop Story in Latest Project Veritas #CNNTapes
The Hunter Biden story was off limits at CNN.
CNN President Jeff Zucker can be heard instructing the network’s personnel not to cover the bombshell Hunter Biden laptop story in leaked conference calls in October, ensuring that the network’s audience wouldn’t hear of the evidence documenting the corrupt foreign business dealings of Joe Biden’s son in Ukraine.
Wednesday’s release is the latest of Project Veritas’s #CNNTapes. James O’Keefe of the whistleblower organization confronted Zucker on CNN’s daily conference call on Tuesday, revealing to the corporate media operative that the medium had been compromised.
Zucker explains that the Hunter Biden laptop story belonged exclusively to the “rabbit hole” of Fox News, Breitbart, and the New York Post in leaked conference call audio from October 23rd.

CNN Vice President and political director David Chalian more openly places a lid on the bombshell story in the leaked conference call, glossing over the reports of Biden family corruption and stating it was “obvious” that CNN wouldn’t cover it.
“Obviously we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden, which seems to be giving its marching orders to Fox News and the right wing echo chamber and what to talk about today…”
Another CNN Vice President, David Vigilante, questions why any corporate media reporters are retweeting the story at all, suggesting it should be completely and totally ignored.
“What in the world are Maggie Haberman and Jake Sherman doing retweeting that story?”
The Hunter Biden laptop story may be the most censored news report in American history, with Big Tech platforms such as Twitter and Facebook going to unprecedented lengths in order to purge mention of it from their platforms.
