CNN has finished the month of April in fourth place among the four cable news networks in the ad-friendly A25-54 demo in prime time. According to Nielsen Media Research, CNN finished the month with an average of 265,000 A25-54 viewers (Mon-Fri, 8pm-11pmET). Sister network HLN moved into third place with 274,000 A25-54 viewers on the continued success of Nancy Grace.
Fox News was far out front averaging 662,000 demo viewers, more than CNN and MSNBC combined. MSNBC placed second averaging 298,000 A25-54 viewers.
For the month of March, CNN had the dubious distinction of falling to third place in prime time, behind MSNBC for the first time ever in both Total Viewers and the A25-54 demo.
CNN will still finish second in Total Viewers for April, 2,000 viewers ahead of third-place MSNBC.
We’ll have final numbers and ratings breakdowns tomorrow.
