In what should have happened years ago, CNN finally dumped Chris Cuomo. With shocking results.
As the New York Post reported, with Cuomo gone his ratings went up.
The anemic ratings for Chris Cuomo’s CNN show shot up — after he disappeared on suspension.
The total number of “Cuomo Prime Time” viewers spiked to 897,000 on Tuesday night when Anderson Cooper filled in for the missing host, according to Nielsen TV ratings data posted online by AdWeek’s TVNewser website.
That figure was up nearly 19 percent from Monday, when Cuomo attracted just 754,000 pairs of eyeballs.
It also exceed his 9 p.m. weekday show’s average of 774,000 viewers during November, when it ranked No. 25 among all cable TV news programs, right behind Cooper’s.
The surge of interest came hours after CNN announced it had “indefinitely” benched Cuomo “pending further evaluation” of official documents from the sexual harassment probe that forced his older brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, to resign in August.
How sick is that when your numbers go up with you gone?! But understand this Conservatives, no Leftist is actually surprised.
Chris Cuomo was one of the worst TV hosts in the business. The only people little brother was better than include Don Lemon and Al Sharpton.
But aside from being crappy at his job, Cuomo has other problems as an allegation of sexual misconduct on his part have surfaced.
Again, the NY Post reports on malfeasance by the Love Gov’s little bro.
A former co-worker of Chris Cuomo made a sexual misconduct allegation against the former CNN anchor, who was fired Saturday for misleading the cable network about the extent of the role he played trying to mitigate the sexual harassment accusations that took down his brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
A well known employment lawyer who represents the accuser contacted CNN Wednesday to tell them of the allegation, according to The New York Times.
The disclosure came as an outside law firm was probing new documents released by by New York’s top prosecutor Monday that suggested the younger Cuomo was more involved trying to control damage to his brother’s political career than he previously said.
The woman who leveled the unknown accusations against Chris Cuomo, 51, was a former “junior colleague” at another news network, according to Debra Katz, the accuser’s lawyer, the paper said. The allegation was reportedly not connected to the cascade of accusations that led Andrew Cuomo to resign from office in the face of impeachment four months ago.
It was unclear if the woman’s claim influenced CNN’s choice to fire its star prime time anchor, according to the report. Cuomo was suspended from his reported $6 million a year job indefinitely on Tuesday.
Trust me, this woman’s allegation against Cuomo is not the reason he was fired. It was just icing on the cake.
Cuomo was gone when his brother was relieved of duty. The network just didn’t let him know right away.
As long as big brother Andrew was governor, Fredo could extort money from CNN. Because having a governor on their payroll by way of his brother provided cheap access to information.
Sadly for the Uday and Qusay of New York, the information pipeline dried up when big bro lost his power base.
The Cuomos are finished.
Just as the ratings bump proved, the Cuomos are done. New Yorkers will feed on their carcasses, and other Leftists will dine as scraps.
