Brian Stelter Gets More Bad News, Year-End Ratings Show Steady Decline of Viewership

Failed CNN host Brian Stelter got more bad news to finish the year. As his program has fought for prominence during the Biden era, CNN’s “Reliable Sources” finished a dismal 2021 with a nine-month record of failing to crack the one-million-viewer plateau.

With President Biden in power, Stelter’s audience has dwindled. He spent years nitpicking previous President Trump’s every move. During the first quarter, “Reliable Sources” averaged 1.4 million viewers, but by the second quarter, it had decreased to only 846,000. Making things worse for Stelter, one of the best weeks for the show early in the year was a week that we was out and had a guest host fill in.

The program, which purports to cover the media industry, averaged only 696,000 viewers in the fourth quarter.

With an average audience of 947,000 viewers in 2021, Stelter’s show finished outside the top 200 most-watched cable shows, trailing a range of cartoons, reruns, and niche programming like HGTV’s “Wasted Space” and a host of digital programs that air on social media platforms, such as YouTube.

Perhaps in 2022 CNN will opt to move on from Stelter, but then again the kid has clearly held something over executives at the network as his show has never truly performed in any meaningful manner, and yet has remained on air. He also frequently sits in as a guest on other CNN programming, further demonstrating the network is either as dumb as we think they are, or they are unable to move on from him. I guess only time will tell, in the meantime those who punish themselves and choose to watch CNN will have to endure his ignorance and steady dose of liberal propaganda.
