Chris Wallace’s new show on CNN, Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?‘ has bombed so badly even amateur YouTubers are getting more viewers than him.
After the worst ratings month since the launch of his new CNN show, it doesn’t appear that many people appear to be ‘talking to Chris Wallace.’
In January, Wallace’s show averaged an embarrassing 365,000 viewers.
It gets worse.
Out of those viewers, just 48,000 of them were in the highly coveted 25- to 54-year-old demographic, according to Nielsen data.
Wallace’s show last Sunday averaged just 323,000 viewers and 38,000 in the 25-54 demographic.
There are amateur YouTubers out there who are getting more viewers than Wallace, which is embarrassing for a seasoned news anchor with the reach of a global media network at his disposal.
It really shouldn’t be a surprise, though. Since Wallace joined CNN, his true liberal colors have come out. He is now a fan of Nancy Pelosi, which says it all.
As NewsBusters reported:
This came in the second half of the Wallace interview. He came out of commercial insisting, “Whether you agree with her politics or not, there is no denying Nancy Pelosi has been one of the most effective politicians in Washington for the last two decades. I picked up our conversation asking the former speaker how she’s done it.”
You can tell that Alexandra Pelosi’s dearest-mommy documentary is clearly part of the Pelosi PR packet, as Alexander was featured heavily in the Maureen Dowd puff piece in Sunday’s New York Times. Wallace played a clip of Pelosi playing hardball with a Democrat as they passed “Obamacare” in 2010. Then Wallace played a clip of Pelosi talking in the documentary about never tiring in a negotiation.
Why is he even bothering?
We think retirement may be in order.
