CNN's Ratings Collapse As Primetime Shows Draw Less Viewers Than Re-Runs Of "Yogi Bear"

Tyler Durden's picture

A series of fake news articles (see here, here and here), black mail of anonymous Reddit users who had the audacity to poke fun at them and a couple of undercover videos from Project Veritas revealing CNN producers admitting their own news is "mostly bullshit," seems to be taking a toll on CNN's ratings.

As The Federalist notes in the table below, for the week of June 26th - July 2nd, CNN's primetime shows (Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon) managed to draw about 6% fewer viewers than multi-decade old re-runs of "Yogi Bear," "Full House," and "Friends" which air in the same time slots on Nick-At-Nite.



Sometimes it's difficult to know for sure, but we think this is a bad trend...

CNN's Ratings Collapse As Prime Time Shows Draw Less Viewers Than Re-Runs Of "Yogi Bear"

My response: So when are they going to remove CNN from the AIRPORTS? When that happens, it will make my year!!

CNN PAYS to be in airports.

MSDNC has risen from the ratings basement to second place. It's a dumpster fire, but give them credit where credit is due, at least they don't try to hide their biases.

A lot of their "journalists" have been doxxed too.

CNN - Crashed News Network

Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch.

Think about this:

The Caliphate News Network has now fallen behind the network that gave us "Honey Boo-Boo" in the ratings (TLC).

That is EPIC losing.

Couldn't have happened to a better bunch of douches.

The consequence of sin is death without repentance.  The TeeVee channel is an arrogant bunch.

The truth about life always prevails in the long run.  CNN outright lied on a continual basis, so it's demise should not surprise anyone.

Ahhh, just let me bask in the glow of the flaming wreckage while listening to the agonized screams of the dying coming out of CNN for a moment.

Yes. (Sigh)


One down, only six to go ;-)

Sow the wind.....reap the whirlwind.

Now, we already know how this "investigation" is going to end.

Its just a matter of time before it happens...tick tock...tick tock...the only "collusion" really going on was Podesta/Hillary making money off Russians...Hillary/Wassername conspiring against Burnie Marx...and the Alinsky press corps conspiring with the above players (sans Russia) to obstruct justice from finding out about it.

Tick tock.

Any real "federal investigator" worth a shit would have already deposed (as in under oath) Debbie Wassername, Podesta, Hillary, Brazille, Clapper, Comey, Brennan and that little Pajamas Boi look-a-like named Robby Mook to find out what they know & "when they knew it".

I mean, this is "national security" type shit we're talkin bout here! ;-)

Original pre-CNN Turner News from 1979--Maybe CNN should go back to this.

The trend is our friend! I thought the mostly bullshit Russian meddling spew was driving ratings through the roof. Let's hope the other six get "Yogi Beared" next.

ruh roh! Next thing you know they'll be losing to re-runs of scooby doo!

Scooby is the best!!!!!!

FNN will try to use Scooby and Elmo for anchors.

Vendetta's picture

don't insult Scooby like that, Scooby has far more integrity than the people running and on FNN

CN whaaaat?  What's that? Never heard of it, nor do I care.

Son of Loki's picture

NPR did not mention one bit about the most talked about story of the decade---Fake News CNN, the Russian collusion Hoax, and CNN calling Americans stupid.

NPR busied itself with anything and everything, but not one peep about the BIGGEST story since Lehman!

I laughed all day listening to their bull shit since I had to drive various places to deliver stuff for my Father Loki.

CFNN is by far the worst, and MSNBC a close second, but nothing on radio beats the garbage on NPR these days.

CNN got rabidly mad because the artist labeled all the top people in CNN as Jews.  The company has NO DIVERSITY to speak of.  That is what set them off.  If anyone thinks CNN is going to "go away", please re-think that.  Even if everyone quit buying their sponsors products, CNN would not go away.  It is mouthpiece for whomever truly controls it.  Eventually everyone who is butt hurt will forget their anger and things will go back to what they were.

Nostradumbass's picture

When you realize (((who))) has all or most of the money, controls banking, media, foreign policy, courts, education etc. you can then realize that no matter how failing an institution is financially, it will be supported to keep the propaganda going. If every American quit paying taxes, ZOG would still be doing fine financially. Once fully awakened, We The People may be able to destroy them - if we are determined.

CNN is a hobby for the rich and famous liberals.  It doesn't matter if the network makes money or has viewers.



edotabin's picture

Did anyone at NPR tell the personalities the meaning of the word inflection?

Two Theives and a Liar's picture

Ha. Yeah that "mellow, saccharine-voiced" NPR announcing style apparently has PSYOP origins based on my research. Fake News goes down so much easier when it's "sweetened" first. Notice how all NPR "anchors" have that SAME inflection...


I think not. 

goober's picture

Yes the inflection of an Orwellain robotron ! They are paid to sound that way becaue they think it makes them sound intellgent or something like that ? Progs always think they are the smartest of the smart, when the simple truth is they are spoon fed every utterance only to repeat those false paradigms until they become accepted. Truth and facts matter not, just the repitition and false paradigms being promoted as truth and fact !

Boondocker's picture

My boss wanted to listen to NPR while driving to various stes.  after 5 minutes I told him we change this crap or he is going to suffer a horrible industrial accident at the next site....listened to rock and roll the rest of the day....

Vendetta's picture

Ugh .. totally understand ... I used to listen to NPR till I heard years ago (about 8 years ago) a 'debate' whether 'insider trading'  was good for the economy and from the sound of it the person against insider trading was losing the fake debate ... I stopped listening from that day forward and have never gone back ... news media in the US sucks wind and I cannot listen to it or watch it any longer... I don't care if its 'liberal leaning' or 'conservative leaning" I just don't care and want to hear none of it...

Sokhmate's picture

NPR is pure nincompoopery, proberly broadcasted from planet poop.

garcam123's picture

Same for Democracy Now...............disgraced spewers of the shit spewing criminal enterprise that is the democraptic clusterfuck run by Cuntlery and her "too fucking ugly to even sell pussy" Debbie Watery-Shitz...........I say hang the pieces of crap on street poles like Mussilini!

rosiescenario's picture

NPR reflects the is a taxpayer funded vehicle appropriated by the Dem bureaucrats in D.C.

It needs to be de-funded asap.

weburke's picture

only because they are forced on airport and hospital viewers is their ratings even that high

goldandsilverguy's picture

In many respects, the main stream media should be looked upon like the catholic church. It's old, out of date, and filled with pedophiles.

goober's picture

The beginning of the breakdown and collapse of PRAVDA/MSM is a good thing to behold !

I have been waiting for this for a very long while, the beginning of the end of the many control mechanisms created for us all !

At least Yogi doesn't steal picnic baskets from autistic minors.

SWRichmond's picture

Baba Looey was quick draw McGraw's sidekick.


Perhaps you were thinking of Hey Boo Boo!

Mr Ranger Sir!

El Vaquero's picture

Hey Boo Boo Bear!  Let's go steal some picanic baskets!

Duh, gee Yogi, I don't know if the ranger would like that.

Well FUCK the ranger, Boo Boo, because I'm smarter than the average bear!

Billy the Poet's picture

Baba Booey was Howard Stern's sidekick. He got the nickname when he mistakenly referred to Yogi's friend Boo Boo as Baba Booey. It became a meme and was used to prank the media including CNN.

And no, I'm not proud that I possess this information.



BabaBooey on CNN Evening News

slyhill's picture

I am proud to correct you. It was Quick Draw's pal that Gary said incorrectly, boff.

Billy the Poet's picture

No wonder I didn't win the shopping cart on Howiewood Squares.


Here's the original broadcast. Howard mentions Yogi and Boo Boo immediately before Gary mentions Quick Draw and makes the "Baba Booey" error.

This is awesome. 

We are debating cartoons and talk show personalities.


Say it with me.

All the comments I am reading are a mad effort to get the burial under way.


I mean it, say it. 

This is not a threat. 

This is a done deed, an assesment of reality.


The internet is chimping out, burial pires are being erected. 






(Even if this ends up wrong, you know it's fun, do it).

Meme War


Or like:

Ding Dong the wicked Kitch

Ding Dong the wicked Kitch is deeead.

MS, you have outdone yourself, and that takes some doing.

Thoses first two lines - I absolutly howled at that, and it is barely 8 oclock in the the morning. (Aside: Fucking posts get time-stamped Eastern - fuck the East coast.)

Thank God the truck in the radio has been broken for years, and I don't watch TV, except for some snippets posted on ZH from time to time, some of them really old ("Andddd it's gone." - "Surprise, Surprise, Surprise.")

All  the news I can stand, and some I can't, is right here on dear old ZH, especially WB and George Washington. And the comments.

Some of it is probably funnier than even CNN, which I have never watched, except for some special snips posted right here on ZH.

Real News: Yogi Bear bests CNN.

(OK - Confession - last year my new partner and I bought a house in town she lives in - I'm still and always on the homestead - and I watch the Warrior games - best damn basketball (my favorite sport in high school) ever been played. Ever.)


(That was fun! Try it!)

garcam123's picture

Stern's shows made me almost wreck my truck from laughing, that good weed probably had something to do with it too.

I ran large technical construction projects and pretty much stayed stoned every day for 30 years!  Never lost a nickle had a GREAT TIME, worked for a LOT of assholes.....fuck them........Yea you you non-waterproofing piece of shit in Missouri.

Stupid fuck intalled hundreds of feet of waterproofing sealants into the Buccineers Stadium in Tampa, almost half of the structure.......I had to go behind the worthless fuck and cut the shitty wrong size material out, photograph every action, regrind the receiving edges and re-install the right material. The whole fucking stadium is pre-cast concrete and it rains a LOT in Florida!   Bunch of alcoholics and druggies in the Historical Restoration and Waterproofing industry.......The fucking owners, not so much the craftspeoploem a little weed going to work and a few hits up on the deck hanging on the side of a building 15 stories up! It was a HOOT!


Two Theives and a Liar's picture

Awesome. stopped smoking or what? Sounds like part of my life. Is that stadium going to implode because people "forgot" stuff?
