CNN’s momentum continued in July, with the network showing strength, stability and growth across the board.  For the 13th straight month, CNN ranked second in cable news in Total Day among both total viewers and the 25-54 demo rating. The network has now ranked #2 in primetime (M-Su/M-F) for the past 13 months in the coveted adults 25-54 demographic. This represents the longest streak across these dayparts and demos in more than seven years.

CNN is the only news network to grow from year-ago levels in all four key dayparts among both total viewers and the demo 25-54. The network is posting the largest growth in cable news in M-Su prime in the key demo 25-54 and the largest increases in M-F primetime in both demos.  CNN is also registering the largest and only double-digit growth in daytime (9a-4p) among 25-54.

(Note:  MSNBC’s total viewer (P2+) growth in July, 2015 is attributed to increases among adults 55+.  Year-to-date, MSNBC is posting its oldest yearly median age on record in both total day and primetime.)
