For the first time in more than two years, CNN fell out of the top 30 cable channels last week in prime time (total viewers). Fox News ranked 3rd, behind USA and ESPN, while MSNBC was 26th. It was the 43rd consecutive week Fox News finished in the top 5 cable channels in prime time.
This means CNN was beat by channels like TV Land — which plays nothing but "Leave It To Beaver" episodes and features prime time television starring Joan Rivers.
