One thing you can say about the Q3 2009 vs. 2008 ratings declines suffered by MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann, they’re not quite as bad as those for CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360.
Comparing Q3 2009 with Q3 2008, AC 360 has lost 23% of its cable news target adults 25-54 demo , and 17% of its average viewership. Likely because of the lack of an election year, but I’d have thought that Cooper’s ratings would be less effected by the lack of an election than Olbermann’s, not more.
