CNN’s Trump Town Hall Drew Only 3.1 Million Viewers

3.1 million

“At a time when CNN has been struggling to turn around viewership decline, the [Trump town hall] telecast proved to be a ratings disappointment, with Nielsen reporting just 3.1 million viewers overall. That was a big boost over CNN’s typical 8 p.m. telecast, but a smaller audience than CNN’s town hall with President Biden last summer (3.7 million) and six previous Trump town halls carried by Fox News — calling into question both CNN and Trump’s drawing power,” the Washington Post reports.
