Friday Cable Ratings: CNN Hits 14-Year Low in Demo at 10PM

On Friday night, CNN hit its lowest ratings in the 25-54 demo for the 10 p.m. time slot in more than 14 years with an average of 35K viewers. Between a CNN Spotlight special on Seth MacFarlane at 10 p.m. with 42K and Unguarded with Rachel Nichols at 10:30 p.m. with just 29K, the record lows helped put CNN in fifth place overall in the primetime demo behind Fox News, HLN, CNBC and MSNBC.


Fox News’ Hannity won the demo and total viewers at 10 p.m. with 210K and 1.128M viewers respectively.
