Michelle Wolf’s Controversial WHCD Comedy Scored 1.3 Mil Viewers for CNN on Saturday Night


After all that fuss, not that many people were watching the White House Correspondents Dinner anyway.

CNN scored about 1 million viewers from 9-10pm on Saturday night, and 1.347 million from 10-11 pm.

The dinner was beaten by all the shows on Fox by right wing personalities like Jesse Watters, Jeannine Pirro, and Gregg Gutfeld.

Viewership for Saturday night cable skews older anyway, with many Fox News viewers receiving sponge baths while the TV– with the sound down– shows angry white people screaming at the camera.

NBA playoffs on Turner and soft focused Platonic romance on Hallmark beat all of it, anyway.
