Al Jazeera America’s Ratings Hit Zero

Last week, some of Al Jazeera America’s daytime news programs hit zero among the key demographic of those aged 25 to 54, and its primetime shows bounced in and out of the single-digits in the same demographic. For example, Mediaite reported that the 10 p.m. primetime show Consider This averaged only 3,000 viewers of those aged 25 to 54 and only 9,000 total. On Thursday, the show earned a 0 rating.

AJAM’s headline program, America Tonight, pulled an average of 18,600 viewers last week. For comparison, the Monday viewership for MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show was 997,000, CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight was 530,000, and Fox’s The Kelly File was 2,066,000.
