CNN Adds Another Major Fail to the Books as Jill Biden’s Primetime Special Bombshells Spectacular

CNN just can’t win, even when they lure the most ardent leftists with an extravagant puff on Joe Biden’s handler.

The project was simple. Get the CNN primetime spot by giving an interview to the woman America can’t seem to get away from, First Lady Jill Biden. Only there is a flaw in the plan. Despite being pushed into everything from sports to Grammy presentations, Jill just doesn’t wear water.

According to Fox News, the ratings for Biden’s prime-time appearance were beyond abysmal:

The “CNN Primetime” special, titled “Jill Biden Abroad,” featured an interview with CNN White House correspondent Arlette Saenz, which dropped 43% of CNN’s average viewership in 2023 to 9 p.m. ET.

‘Jill Biden Abroad’ averaged 368,000 total viewers, compared to 2.7 million for Fox News’ ‘Hannity’ and 2.3 million for MSNBC’s ‘The Rachel Maddow Show’, both of which aired in the same timeslot. . It was CNN’s worst weekday performance at 9 p.m. since June 17, 2022, excluding Christmas Eve, Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

So Biden not only failed to attract CNN’s prime-time viewers, but drove a good chunk out of them. In fact, as Fox News added, Biden’s appearance on CNN has been overtaken by reruns of shows like “Friends” on TBS and “Gunsmoke” on TV Land Classics.

The situation gets even worse when you dig a little deeper and see that when it comes to the target demographic (adults aged 25-54), only 84,000 viewers tuned in. That’s after CNN hit a record low in February that saw the channel plunge to numbers not seen in a decade.

While that’s not good for CNN, it’s even worse for the Biden administration. With her husband Joe embarrassing everyone every time he finds himself in front of a camera, Jill was meant to be the relatable and admirable face of the Biden administration. The fact that few people tune in to see what she has to say about the administration shows that people aren’t interested, and in politics, that’s incredibly worrying.

Being hated can always generate conversations and possibly trigger debates that will strengthen your side. Infamy can be just as useful, if not more useful than Fame. Not to be thought of, or rather to have people think you’re too unimportant to pay attention to, is much worse.
