BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – Viewers are continuing to flee from CNN anchor Don Lemon, even after relaunching his primetime program amid his dramatic ratings slump.
Last week marked the debut of “Don Lemon Tonight,” which is virtually no different than the anchor’s long-running two-hour program “CNN Tonight.” The only difference between both shows was that “CNN Tonight” had higher ratings.
“Don Lemon Tonight” averaged a measly 816,000 viewers in his 10 pm ET timeslot from May 17-21, which is an 11% decrease from Lemon’s final week of “CNN Tonight,” which averaged 898,000 viewers from May 10-14, according to Nielsen data.
“It’s clear to me that my continual loss of viewers is based on discrimination,” explained Lemon in a somber tone. “I guess America isn’t ready for black gay news anchor that distorts the truth and outright lies on every segment on his show.”
