The Chris Cuomo-led Cuomo Prime Time is celebrating its first year on the air tonight at 9:00pm. And so far, ratings are up from what aired prior to CPT, which was a second edition of Anderson Cooper 360.
Cuomo Prime Time continues to be CNN’s strongest show across its programming, both in total viewers and in the key demographic.
According to the most recent ratings release from CNN, CPT is the only show in the 9pm time slot (up against heavyweights Rachel Maddow and Sean Hannity) to post rating gains over last year — Prime Time went up 11% versus last year, whereas Hannity and Maddow fell.
“The thanks goes from me, to so many of you, for giving this show a chance. It’s a such an underdog, people never expected we would be where we are right now, so — thank you,” Cuomo said.
