Media Ratings and Online Viewership Collapse

Is the media dying?

Can we smother it?


During President Biden's first 100 days in office, weekly full-day cable ratings for CNN and MSNBC have been trending down, according to statistics from ratings company Nielsen.


On average, 1.3 million household viewers were watching MSNBC in the last week of January, shortly after Biden took office. For the week ending April 25, that number was 868,000. At CNN, those figures went from 1.2 million to 749,000.

Even perennial ratings leader Fox News is seeing a decline, though a much smaller one compared to its cable competitors, dipping to just 1.2 million from 1.3 million in late January.

Prime-time cable viewership is also down across the board. In the same time comparisons as the full-day ratings, CNN has lost 792,000 viewers, while MSNBC is down 788,000 and Fox is short 348,000.

Network evening news isn't faring any better. Ratings leader "World News Tonight" at ABC had 1.8 million fewer viewers in the seven days ending April 25 compared to the last week of January.

NBC's "Nightly News," in the No. 2 slot, lost 1.7 million viewers in that same period, while CBS is down 1.2 million.

Media experts like Scott Robson, a research analyst with S&P Global Market Intelligence who studies cable news, say viewership this year essentially peaked during the Jan. 6 insurrection and has been going down since.

"We are seeing a similar trend for the broadcast evening news shows," he added.

No cable news or broadcast networks provided a comment to The Hill about the declines.

In addition to ratings, website traffic for major news outlets is also down.

The number of total unique viewers is down this year for ABC News, CBS News, CNN, Fox News and NBC News, according to analysis firm Comscore.

Traffic is also down for The New York Times, The Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, the Los Angeles Times, Reuters, the Boston Globe, Vice, Vox and BuzzFeed.

Some of those sites had more traffic in March than in February, but all are down since the start of the year.

Note that while Fox hasn't lost too much since January, they lost a lot in November, when they decided to join the left in "fortifying" the election.

13 People watch "The News" to find out what's happening, and what might be likely to happen.

When the future is certain, and only the past keeps changing, there's no entertainment value left in watching some greased up communications dropout with fake tits and a weave yammering on about what "sources say".

We've been rightly focused on the media's propaganda, but if it goes away or gets tuned out, we're still left in a state where nobody shines light on the encroaching tyranny.

15 Networks supporting the party out of power typically lose viewership when their party is in power. The fear mongering that so many people find addicting tends to go away and become less important to the addicts.

30 With the exception of Tucker, I've stopped watching pretty much all media.


And judging by the ratings for historical cultural mainstays like the movies, award shows and sports, it looks like everyone is tuning out across the spectrum of media.


Which is bad for me, since I build most these facilities.

Oh well, it will force my hand and cause me to retire a lot earlier than I had thought I would.

37 The Big Lie might have worked on Russian peasants, but there are a lot of reasons why it doesn't work today. We have a lot more ways to discover the truth than those peasants did, places like this one and many more. I have a feeling that a fairly large majority of Americans have a good idea of what's going on. What they can or will do about it is another question.

Posted by: Ruthless at May 03, 2021 12:26 PM (/uaBM)

38 News is way down.
Primtime network TV is down modestly (about 5%).
Sports are way down.
Movies are way down.
Streaming is unknown because no one reports reliably.

Where is the audience going? It's possible they've shifted to streaming, but based on the financial reports, that is likely not true. There's been some shift to it, but not enough to make up for the bone-crunching declines observed in every known dimension.

I suspect that actual total time spent consuming media products is in the process of collapsing. The audience isn't shifting somewhere else, it's disappearing.

I wouldn't ridicule that. It's good business. Any ideologically driven spy agency needs mentally-ill misfits by the boatload. Hell, even spy agencies that aren't completely off the beam need some of them around.

Hanging out a sign that says "No future? No past? Nobody who loves you? Join today, and take revenge on the world that ignored you!" makes perfect sense to me.

"Who cares what they say?" needs to be the operative comment from the man on the street. Not only should these MSM outfits go unwatched, their editorial points of view should be discarded offhand. We need to set our own "narrative", not merely be reactive to whatever bilge they pump out.

169 When all news from national to local no matter the channel mimic the exact words we know there is nothing but propaganda being fed to us. Most of the American people are bright enough to shut it off, but others are too dumb or stuck in a routine. These dumb or stuck people are not going to change no matter what, and these are the people the Democrats count on.

The real question coming from Biden wining 2020 is how long have we had elections stolen at all levels. Trump showed that the government has been playing us and this is why they hate him so much. The audits should show issues in Arizona. Georgia previously did but then it was blocked by a Judge to go further. What has not been done through out the country is getting rid of the Voting machines and this will allow the problem to continue.

So does it matter that most normal Americans are tuning out? I don't think so, as they don't really care for us any way. Their programming (used in both senses of the word) is there to keep Outer Party informed as to what opinion they are required to have for the day.

Ah, industrial admiration. Makes sense. Like the story of the greatest tech support call of all time - a weird confluence of good comms and fucked up situation.

A guy in Afghanistan was pinned down while providing cover fire for a raid when his weapon jammed. The situation was, I suppose, "fluid." He called the manufacturer (Barrett) and explained that he was in the field, under fire and his weapon kept jamming. They immediately routed him to one of the guys on the test team. The guy listened, and asked if the soldier had recently cleaned his weapon. The soldier affirmed. The guy at the manufacturer knew the likely problem, gave him instructions on how to strip the weapon to the correct point and use another part to bend something back into place, and got him back to operation within about a minute.

That call made the rounds in my industry (high tech) of "this is the tech support standard to aim for."

And before you all go all "whataboutyou" like the lefties you bemoan, I'm not playing video games (and God knows I used to spend hours playing Hearts of Iron); my time is spent working on my health, doing what pro-property rights litigation gets tossed my way, getting the lawsuit over the dysthanasia of my unsedated cat by heart stick served and litigated, and doing what I can, from afar, to help my 85 y.o. mother who is in pretty bad health (researching surgeons, medicines, etc.) And unlike most of you, I don't live anywhere near a place where I could do any good outside the litigation context (as my nic suggests, I live in San Francisco).

Apparently there are about 42 from the original Xbox that are playable. They all apparently get an up res as well. Now that 42 sounds small and I agree it is. But then you look and the 360 has nearly 600 hundred that are playable on the current gem console. And basically all Xbox One games are minus Kinect games. That says backwards compatibility going forward. Add in to that how Xbox has figured out how to double the frame rate for quite a few old games too shows that they aren't just ignoring them.

In a statement, the officer's attorney insistedhis client's "bravery
was nothing short of heroic and by shooting and killing Babbitt, he
saved the lives of countless members of Congress and the rioters. The
nation owes him a debt of gratitude."

As to the collapse week 2, almost everything collapses in its second week these days though MK's is rather spectacular. Almost 75%, wow.

Yeah, 75% is a lot.

450 429 The UK is sending a carrier strike group to the "Indo-Pacific" region that will include the brand-new HMS Queen Elizabeth,, two DDs, two frigates, and an Astute-class nuke sub. A USN Arleigh Burke class destroyer, The Sullivans, and a Dutch frigate will accompany the British fleet component. The deployment will last 28 weeks. The Queen Elizabeth will carry 10 UK F-35Bs and 10 USMC F-35s.

In 1951 the U.S. Navy was to be found everywhere, except Antarctica. Our allies were the icing of a large, delicious cake. Now it's more like 1821, and the Navy is a "me too" component of someone else's agenda.

452 killing Babbitt, he

saved the lives of countless members of Congress and the rioters.

If Babbit gets through she has a heated discussion with some congress critter - just like when the Kavanaugh protestors got through.
Obviously murdering her while she was stuck in a door to stop that is the height of bravery.

Is this your first week on the Internet?
Nobody does that. And nobody but the trolls claim to expect it. People provide extensive facts either on their own blogs after much thought and work, or at webpages of official scientific journals.
Truly, is this your first week on the planet?
Nobody provides extensive data off the top of their head in real life.

465 the media long ago devolved into a racket. With the 24 hour news cycle, they needed content to fill that cycle. As the content became thinner and thinner (since more networks were in on the game) they increasingly turned to becoming part of the story rather than reporting the story. They needed to prolong the stories as long as possible to fill those hours and to pay their salaries.
