Remember when CNN employed Roland Martin as Campbell Brown’s seat-filler and folks bemoaned it? Well, Campbell returned. They renamed the show. And … sacre bleu! It’s actually doing WORSE!
Campbell Brown‘s 8pmET CNN program had just 69,000 viewers in the A25-54 demo Friday night – the program’s lowest ever. In fact, it was the lowest demo viewership for CNN at 8pmET since Christmas Day 2007.
The previous program low was 115,000, which occurred May 20 when Roland Martin was filling in. Brown’s previous low was last Wednesday, with 125,000 viewers.
Brown took over anchoring the 8pm hour in March 2008 when the show was called “Election Center.” The show morphed into “Campbell Brown: No Bias, No Bull” in October, a response to her 8pm competitors on Fox News and MSNBC. When she returned from maternity leave earlier this month the show was renamed “Campbell Brown.” (TV Newser)
