Once again, CNN has fallen short in the ratings game, this time with their primetime special featuring Jill Biden, the First Lady of the United States.
The show, titled “Jill Biden Abroad,” failed to attract a significant audience, with only 368,000 total viewers on average. This performance is particularly disappointing considering Biden’s prominent role in the White House and her husband’s declining abilities.
Meanwhile, Fox News’ “Hannity” and MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” drew in 2.7 million and 2.3 million viewers, respectively, during the same time slot.
This marked CNN’s poorest weekday performance at 9 p.m. since June 17, 2022, except for the holidays of Christmas Eve, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Martin Luther King Jr. Day, according to Fox News.
It is no secret that CNN has been struggling with their ratings in recent times, despite their efforts to produce new content and appeal to a broader audience. This raises concerns about the future of the network and their ability to compete with other news outlets.
While the low ratings for Jill Biden’s show may not directly impact President Biden’s potential re-election campaign, it is still a worrying sign for CNN. The network’s ability to attract viewers and produce compelling content will be crucial if they hope to remain a relevant player in the news industry.
Furthermore, it is important to note that Jill Biden’s comments during the special may not have been well-received by all viewers. During the show, she accused the Trump administration of being “isolationists,” which could have turned off some potential viewers.
Additionally, her decision to present an “International Women Of Courage Award” to a biological male on International Women’s Day at the White House may have also sparked controversy and alienated some viewers.
In conclusion, CNN’s disappointing ratings for “Jill Biden Abroad” highlight the network’s ongoing struggles to attract viewers and produce compelling content.
While this may not directly impact President Biden’s potential re-election campaign, it does raise concerns about CNN’s future and their ability to compete with other news outlets.
As passionate Republican voters, we must continue to hold the mainstream media accountable for their biased reporting and push for transparency and fairness in all news coverage.
