Trump Impeachment a ‘Ratings Disaster’

January 28, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

The three main broadcast networks, ABC, CBS and NBC, all lost viewers during their coverage of President Donald Trump’s impeachment compared to the usual daytime programing lineup, the Washington Times reports.

The Nielsen ratings for Wednesday and Thursday show that three million fewer viewers watched the three networks’ impeachment coverage than watched the soap operas that aired during the day in the weeks before the trial started, according to AdWeek’s TVNewswer. The Media Research Center, a conservative content analysis group, described the coverage a “ratings disaster.”

MRC’s NewsBusters notes that CBS had the highest ratings on Wednesday with 1.52 million average viewers, while ABC had 1.29 million and NBC had 1.26 million. The combined number of average viewers fell from 5.1 million on Tuesday, to just over 4 million on Wednesday, and about 3.8 million on Thursday.

The average viewers for the CBS soap opera “The Young and the Restless” has been between 3.7 and 3.15 million viewers this season. ABC’s “General Hospital” has averaged 2.15 million viewers this season, and NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” has averaged 1.95 million viewers.

    Biiigg Suuurprise! The people who use the MSM for their info fix expected more BombShell revelations and action, not like the soapies Not having their brain bashed like a grape in a blender by Shifty and company either. They knew Trump was going to be shredded, hung on hooks, etc. and sentenced to a gulag day one. Did not happen, did not stay.

    Why would we take the time to see Shifty lying through his
    teeth. Then we have to watch Romney turn tail? We knew he would do that.
