CNN has recently hit upon hard times and are facing an unprecedented ratings struggle. The latest blow to hit them though has been their May numbers, the lowest they have been in 20 years.

May has been the network’s worst month for total viewers during primetime since October 1991 with an average of 389,000 primetime viewers from April 30 to May 27. These are abysmal numbers for them when compared to the other big news networks: MSNBC saw an average of 674,000 viewers and Fox News boasted an average of 1,692,000 viewers.

This news comes shortly after it was revealed that the network had its lowest rated month in over a decade in April. At the time management already issued warnings that numbers would have to be improved so it can only be expected that they will be less than happy with this result just one month later.
