Selective editing of NewsNation's ratings I see. They only reported Cuomo's ratings for June 5th and 6th while nothing for Abrams and Banfield. Ha! Give me a break guys

What makes it even more pathetic...

Dan Abrams used to report the Cable News ratings everyday on his site, Mediaite.

Once NewsNation was added, those daily reports stopped dead in their tracks when they showed that Dan Abrams had one of the lowest watched shows in all of Cable News.

Nexstar's Sean Compton told Forbes May issue they're ecstatic at the "triple digit rise" of Cuomo and Banfield's Nielsen ratings as they go 24/7 news. So why are all of Newsnation's May 2024 ratings a dismal 85,000 avg viewers. Cmon Sean...you have egg on your face!

Real Time with Bill Maher has recently debuted on CNN with 800,000+ avg viewers and averaging 600,000+ avg viewers on Saturday nights while Newsnation Prime has sunk again...now with a paltry 45,000 avg viewers. In fact, since April 28th, Newsnation's Nielsen ratings are the lowest since Cuomo debuted. Daytime ratings remain stagnant too. Who the heck is driving this ship?

Dan Abrams got one of his employees on Mediaite to spin the news that NewsNation was dumping their Blue Bloods reruns, their largest viewer draw (because they can't afford them)... as "NewsNation is becoming a 24/7 News Network!"

The only change to NewsNation was that the Blue Bloods time block was being swapped with yet another talking head format.

That's pretty pathetic Dan...

NewsNation's clearly trying to FAIL by letting go of Blue Bloods and giving Adrienne Bankert who they DEMOTED in January another show to RUIN like she did the Morning show

They dumped Blue Bloods reruns because they can't afford them anymore... despite being their largest audience draw.

Wouldn't be surprised if they fold up shop in the next year.

Rightly so, they're terrible

I definitely agree they'll be shutting down next year. They don't much on air on talent and NOBODY'S watching

Without Blue Bloods to give them those 100,000+ lead-in viewer numbers...NewsNation Prime numbers crashed...only 45,000 avg viewers this week. Sinking ship...Bring back Blue Bloods! Bring back WGN America!

Last 3 weeks Newsnation's ratings have slipped; this week it pulled a low of 80,000 avg viewers. "Attention Michael Corn and Perry Sook: This ship...is sinking!"

Wimpy Wimpy Wimpy...Newsnation's ratings are still...yawwwn!

Newsnation has improved. I just think the news market is too saturated and it's hard for people to change their watching habits.

Newsnation's ratings have slid BIGTIME with the new 24/7 format...by dropping Blue Bloods 300,000 avg viewers has resulted in their overall ratings to tank BIGTIME...especially daytime. Last 4 weeks Newsnation's numbers were between 80,000 and 93,000 avg viewers. Cuomo, Abrams, and Banfield each barely breaking 100 000-150,000 viewers nightly. Now they're gonna run and rerun and then re-re-run their Thursday and Friday night shows AGAIN on Saturday and Sunday night's...to fill dead zones...Ad-nauseum! Bring back Blue Bloods...bring back WGN America!

Since the Variety.com article of March 2023, Newsnation numbers have barely moved: still hovering around 100,000 average viewers. Cuomo less than 200,000, Banfield and Abrams around 100,000...and thats on a good night. A year ago the ad dollars were tight and the competition for them fierce. When is this network going to show any growth or numbers from the money invested...i mean...two years ago Perry Sook said Cuomo would average a million viewers a night. What's happened?

How is NewsNation Prime the 2nd most watched program on NewsNation?! It only comes on Saturday and Sunday evenings. With NewsNation going to 24/7 by summer, will NewsNation Prime still be on the network?

Chris

May 3, 2024 22:26 EST

I believe they're contracted to run Blue Bloods...until...idk. Until that's finished I don't see 7 days a week happening this summer. Plus it's their highest rated program all week where their daytime and most of their nighttime ratings and viewership is in the pits.

BOYCOTT NEWSNATION! BRING BACK BLUE BLOODS...BRING BACK BLUE BLOODS...BRING BACK BLUE BLOODS!!!

Newsnation is becoming 24/7 news network this Saturday June 1st. So all Newsnation programs from here on out. No more Blue Bloods reruns.

98,000 avg viewers??? 3 years running??? Wowww, I think somebody needs to take control of this network, revamp the whole lineup and presentation or come up with a better idea to program this channel. IMO heads should roll!

Thank you...that's what I've been saying for 2 years now. Daytime averages less than 50,000 viewers, Cuomo less viewers than when he started in 2022. Millions of dollars wasted by Nexstar to revamp WGN America and Newsnation is still at the bottom of the heap. In the meantime channels like Newsmax and REELZ have tripled and quadrupled their average viewership! Dan Abrams has 800,000+ viewers this week on his ON PATROL LIVE show...less than 100,000 on Newsnation! C'mon...we're now into the 2024 election cycle and Newsnation has been an abysmal failure. Serious changes and ideas are needed in programming and management guys.
