CNN Viewer Erosion Continues As Campbell Brown Hits New 18 Month Low

Cable news ratings, April 20, 2010: Check out the highlights, and see the full ratings below:

• Last week it was John King, this week it’s the program after his. Campbell Brown‘s 8pmET CNN show had its lowest total viewer average ever Tuesday night, with just 322,000 viewers. The program debuted in October 2008 – Brown missed time for maternity leave, but it still was lower than any program in that hour during the time she was out. It had the fewest total viewers of any cable prime time news show.

Rachel Maddow‘s 9pmET MSNBC show had the top non-FNC cable news show in total viewers, and Nancy Grace‘s 10pmET HLN repeat was the top non-FNC show in the demo.
