Chris Cuomo’s new primetime program on CNN might be in trouble if Wednesday night’s ratings are any indication.
According to Nielsen Media Research, Cuomo’s town hall last night with Nancy Pelosi got just 742,000 viewers in the 9pm slot, compared to 2,461,000 for MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and 3,249,000 for Fox News’ Hannity.
Cuomo’s low ratings aren’t much of an anomaly at CNN, however. CNN is consistently beat in the ratings by competitors like Fox News. (RELATED: The Ratings From Last Week Are In, And CNN Is Getting Crushed By Its Competition)
Cuomo is leaving his job hosting CNN’s morning program “New Day” to take over a primetime slot at 9pm. Thursday morning was his last morning hosting “New Day,” something he commemorated with a bizarre send-off. (RELATED: CNN’s Cuomo Send-Off Is Bizarre To Watch)
