CNN hits new ratings low

Following May's 20-year low in monthly primetime ratings, CNN's primetime ratings for the second quarter were the lowest since 1991. CNN averaged 446,000 viewers in prime time, down 35% from the same period last year.  This left CNN a distant third in primetime ratings.  Ratings were down for all cable news channels, although the declines for Fox News and MSNBC were in the 13-14% range.  Fox continues to dominate cable news viewing, averaging 1.79 million viewers in prime time, and the O'Reilly Factor and Hannity remain the top two cable news programs.
