The only entity that will see a massive positive from the 2020 Presidential election cycle will be CNN. Kamala Harris has a single-candidate Town Hall on CNN with host Jake Tapper. Harris helped CNN gain a 75% increase in ratings with this single event.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Harris’ Town Hall drew in 2 million viewers. Here’s what THR had to say:
Harris’ appearance, a week after she announced she’ll run for president in the 2020 Democratic primary, also carried CNN to the top spot in the key news demographic of adults 25-54. The town hall averaged 712,000 viewers in the demo, well ahead of its cable-news competition on MSNBC (404,000) and Fox News (395,000). CNN also led primetime and the total day in the 25-54 demo thanks in part to the town hall.
