Just when CNN thought their rating couldn’t get any worse, they try Jim Acosta out in the prime time 9:00 slot. That used to be Chris Cuomo’s show and Cuomo garnered an anemic 774,000 viewers on average.
CNN has been desperately trying to find someone to fill that time slot and Acosta, who is a raving lunatic was only able to attract a measly 561,000 on average. Jojo the dog boy could do better.
Sean Hannity, who fills that time slot for Fox News averages three million viewers. Experts in the field say both Cuomo and Acosta are pompous at least Cuomo is entertaining.
The truth is that people just don’t like Acosta, who tries to make every news story about him. He thought he was the barrier that held Trump from destroying democracy.

Jim Acosta’s foray into CNN’s primetime lineup struggles to attract viewers
Jim Acosta’s troubled foray this week into CNN’s primetime lineup included everything from disinformation to widely mocked hot takes, but the outspoken host’s saving grace could be that hardly anybody tuned in.
CNN has experimented with different options at 9 p.m. ET since it was forced to terminate Chris Cuomo last year. This week, it was Acosta’s turn to occupy the time slot with the network’s continuing special, “Democracy in Peril,” that failed to resonate with viewers.
Acosta averaged only 561,000 viewers through the first three episodes of his primetime audition, while Fox News’ time slot competition “Hannity” averaged 3 million viewers during the same period. Acosta’s primetime debut also shed viewers from the 774,000 that “Cuomo Prime Time” attracted during November before the liberal network canned its biggest star.
“Chris Cuomo was pompous but also entertaining. His replacement either needs to be animated or respected, neither of which is Acosta,” OutKick media columnist Bobby Burack told Fox News Digital…
“CNN viewers may like Jim Acosta’s political views, but that doesn’t mean they like him,” Burack continued. “How could they? Acosta is a bitter man, who talks in clichés and cracks jokes only he finds funny.”
The only people who did watch Acosta are the same people who follow drunk drivers so they can see them crash.
