2017 Pacing to be CNN’s Highest on Record in Total Day and Second Highest since 2008 in Primetime

CNN was the #2 cable news network in Total Day in July, beating MSNBC for the 37th consecutive month in the demo adults 25-54. That is CNN’s longest winning streak over MSNBC in more than seven years (dating back to January 2010).
