    Do you have ‘Deutschland 89 (Sundance TV at 11PM and 12AM)’ series finale ratings, please? Thanks!

    Wow, looks like Cavuto’s ratings are down down down…. falling behind CNN, state-run tv


    • Bruce

      If you’re referring to Fox News, Neil Cavuto was never a big draw at 4 PM. Perhaps because it’s 4 PM. Cavuto’s viewership is dependent on current events. Before COVID, Cavuto couldn’t attract 2 M viewers. During COVID and the election, his highest average is 2.2 M.

      But you’re right, since the election, Cavuto is only averaging 1.5 M while CNN at 4 PM averages 2.3 M and MSNBC 2.4 M.


    • Joe

      The President was peddling and following Fox News to decide how he should do his job until recently.

      You call CNN state-run tv? Do you know what that means?


  3. Jason

    Do you have ratings for boxing, Ring City, USA on NBC Sports Network at 6pm ET?
