Last week CNN's day time programming outperformed prime time. CNN was ranked 34th (prime time) and 30th (total day), behind MSNBC and Fox News. MSNBC was 27th (primetime) and 31st (total day) and FNC was 4th (prime time) and 5th (total day). http://www.mediabist...ws-at-4_b101346
------ I saw CNN's press release on November's ratings and they are REALLY stretching to pluck out the good news. Primetime CNN has become a repetitive slog of child molester and missing children crime stories with politics sprinkled in. I would love to see CNN become more like the NPR of cable news - in-depth investigative reporting and interesting discussions among policy makers and technical experts. Erin Burnett is a vapid dimwit, Anderson Cooper is very talented but the show has become depressing, and Piers Morgan is highly inconsistent with some interviews being great but frequently has guests I have no interest in hearing about. C'mon CNN, step it up.

People turned to CNN in droves for breaking news coverage of Whitney Houston.
Absolutely right, Hamil. CNN is a trusted source in breaking news. Problem is, everyone very quickly tuned out...
To paraphrase a quote in the link above, "Whitney Houston Death" is not a business model.
Here's Friday's numbers... WTF?!?!
Ouch. Let's hope it is an anomaly.

The GOP debate last night on CNN, moderated by John King, drew 4.734 million Total Viewers and 1.358 million A25-54 viewers, according to Nielsen final data. The Mesa, Arizona face-off was the least-watched debate on CNN since November and the 13th-ranked of the 19 debates measured by Nielsen.
It still handidly won its time slot, as did the analysis with Anderson Cooper at 10pm.

Then you look at TVNewser's numbers and see the dire situation CNN is truly in.
That is so, so, so true. CNN is in a world of hurt during primetime. Yes, CNN has gotten a little bounce from debate coverage and the whitney houston spectacle helped their numbers but in the day-to-day performance of their primetime lineup, they are getting pummeled by MSNBC, let alone FOX. They are getting killed in the 6pm and 7pm hours and it is hurting AC360. I really like John King but maybe he is a little too flat to have his own show. Don't get me started on how embarrassingly bad and mis-cast Erin Burnett is for CNN.
