Well, the so-called “great and powerful” Don Lemon, the man who routinely “laughed his a** off” when mocking Trump supporters, has been dethroned — by himself. That’s right, the truth is now out: If Don Lemon doesn’t have Trump to rant about, literally nobody wants to watch him… and as a result, my guess is that his days at CNN are numbered, because right now Don is eating a big slice of lemon-flavored humble pie. The truth about what an unpopular loser he truly is is finally out there and he can’t ignore it or hide behind Trump anymore.
Breitbart reported that during the week of January 16, CNN’s average primetime viewership cratered to only 444,000 viewers.
Between Ukraine, the roil over House committee seats, and all the classified documents His Fraudulency Joe Biden scattered throughout the world, there was no shortage of news that week. After all, Fox News attracted an average of 1.996 million primetime viewers during that same week, nearly five times as many as CNNLOL.
In total day total viewers, CNN barely cracked 400,000 with just 417,000. Fox News more than tripled that with 1.387 million. MSNBC did better than CNN, but still only averaged 629,000 total viewers throughout the day.
In the all-important 25-54 age demo that sets advertiser rates, during those primetime hours, Fox News averaged 256,000 demo viewers, MSNBC averaged just 91,000, while CNN did little better with 93,000.
Throughout the day, Fox News averaged 176,000 demo viewers. CNN came in a distant second with 80,000. MSNBC came in last with 69,000.
In cable news, the baseline for success is 100,000 demo viewers. Both CNN and MSNBC are failing miserably.

And if that wasn’t bad enough – the news gets really, really grim for TDS lunatic Don Lemon, who was demoted from his prime-time slot to the failing morning show, and thing are not looking good for him…Breitbart continues:
Not only that, but these are the same CNN faces that gave us this…
Russia Collusion Hoax
Hands Up, Don’t Shoot Hoax
Jussie Smollett Hoax
Covington KKKids Hoax
Very Fine People Hoax
Seven-Hour Gap Hoax
Global Warming Hoax
Russian Bounties Hoax

Policemen Killed at Mostly Peaceful January 6 Protest Hoax
Eating While Black Hoax
Border Agents Whipping Illegals Hoax
NASCAR Noose Hoax
The Georgia Jim Crow 2.0 Hoax
Trump Assaulted Secret Service Agents and Grabbed Steering Wheel of Beast Hoax
Frame MAGA for Alleged Paul Pelosi Assault Narrative
…and who would tune in for more of that?
The best news comes from Don Lemon.
If you recall, Lemon was demoted from his basement-rated primetime perch to save CNN’s failed morning show… With Lemon on board, New Day became CNN This Morning, and you’ll never guess what happened. CNN This Morning is a catastrophe that averaged only 331,000 viewers.
During that same time, Fox News attracted 1.3 million viewers.
This is what I like to call KARMA. Lemon spent nearly every night on his show, bashing Trump and Trump supporters, and now that the Trump-hate has been taken away, he’s sinking into the abyss. Without all things “Trump,” these so-called elites are nothing.
The Breitbart piece goes on to say that in all of cable TV, Fox News came in second behind ESPN in total primetime viewers. MSNBC came in third. CNNLOL came in eighteenth…eighteenth!
Newly-installed CNNLOL chief Chris Licht was supposed to turn the CNN: Titanic around. But as you can see, it is still sinking and sinking fast. It’s no secret as to why. CNN sucks. Licht has refused to replace the gallery of unappealing, smug, and dishonest anchors that sailed that sucker straight into an iceberg. Licht refuses to hire new anchors in a world where everyone despises the old ones.
I will tell you this much, I think Chris’s days are numbered. He didn’t do what had to be done to actually “change CNN.” All h did was shuffle a few TDS lunatics around, and called it a day.
That won’t cut it.
They need someone in that position who truly understands what a laughingstock CNN is nowadays and who has the guts to make really BIG changes, starting with firing about 95% of the people who work there.
