Cuomo Prime Time is a news analysis show airing weeknights live from 9-10pm ET (with a replay at 1:00am ET) from 30 Hudson Yards, New York City. Until the program’s launch, CNN’s evening schedule typically consisted of two hours each for Anderson Cooper 360° (8—10pm ET) and CNN Tonight with Don Lemon (10pm—12am ET). Cuomo Prime Time is scheduled to directly compete with Hannity on Fox News and The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC, both consisting of partisan political commentary from their respective anchors, in contrast to the analytical approach of Cuomo’s, in which a wider range of experts with differing opinions are interviewed.

Cuomo Prime Time is presented by Christopher Charles Cuomo, the former co-anchor of ABC’s newsmagazine 20/20. Cuomo's early career in journalism included appearances related to social and political issues on CNBC, MSNBC, and Fox News. Born in Queens, New York City, Chris is the youngest son of former New York Governor Mario Cuomo and younger brother of the current Governor Andrew Cuomo. He attended The Albany Academy, received his undergraduate degree from Yale University, and his Juris Doctor degree from Fordham University. Chris Cuomo is married to magazine editor Cristina Greeven Cuomo and is the father of Bella and Mario.

Ratings chart for Cuomo Prime Time show on CNN

Chris Cuomo Ratings: Cuomo Prime Time is CNN’s highest rated show. On his counterparts, Cuomo has said he recognizes that both Sean Hannity and Rachel Maddow have higher ratings: “They have huge numbers. I have huge respect for their success, and I take nothing away from them... But the point is, I don’t know where their partisan fights are getting us.” Although Prime Time typically trails those of its 9 p.m. competitors, the show achieved a major victory in January 2021 when an average of a million viewers in the coveted 25-to-54 demographic watched each episode of the program, effectively ranking first on all of cable television.

    Great viewership numbers their Cuomo. Down 43% Year to Date...You must be so proud. I'm sure your advertisers love it! Maybe all the sensationalist rantings about the Nazi Trump administration and Russian Collusion story , finally ran out of interest with your loyal viewers. Or maybe the cover you ran for your Mob Boss brother and his wonderful Covid response there in New York.

      Cnn Is ALWAYS Negative. They Still Talk About Trump. No One cares. Move on. Everone Knows You Are bias. But The hypocrisy is played Out. Stop Playing The race Card. It's Worn To Shreds. DOES BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER ? WHY DON'T YOU TALK ABOUT THE KIDS GETTING SHOT ALL THE TIME IN CHICAGO & NEW YORK. YOU DON'T REALLY TALK ABOUT THAT. ONLY IF A WHITE PERSON DOES IT. THE BIAS NEWS FROM CNN
      NO WONDER WHY YOUR RATINGS ARE BAD.

    How does CNN(CRAP NEWS NETWORK) even stay in business? They would have much better ratings if they showed reruns of the Jetsons or Scooby Doo! Wait Cuomo is a space cadet and Tapper and Humpty-Dumpty are such dogs that their ratings should be on par with cartoons! Good grief! Why can't these so called journalists just report the news without interjecting their own thoughts or feelings?The Huntley Brinkley report did just that.

    I want to watch Fox because I found out they tell the truth I was searching for the truth this last year I never have been involved in politics until about two years ago I am paying close attention to it and I will run out and vote for any Republican it runs what the Democrats are doing to our country is very very hard to take it I’ve never seen anything like this and I’m 50 years old the Republicans are for the right day how anybody can support woke early to Socialism is beyond me I hope Trump rules in 2024 and I hope the Republicans take the house back in 2020 to seeing his ratings are dropping and there’s a reason go fox go trump

    CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, & NBC will all find hell in the end, as do all liars! Its obvious the left is soulless, and are owned by the swamp, mob, and God only know what other secret special interest blackmailing organizations... God bless Fox news! Without them, the media mobs lies could become the truth... Any self aware intelligent human can see what the demmy wokes are doing. They are brain washed by the opportunistic capitalists that get rich by selling our freedoms, rights, and liberty for thier wreched ignorance.... Academia, and a purchased piece of paper called an education does necessarily create an educated or intelligent citizen! Ps, fart sniffing causes brain damage! For starters, just look at Anderson, Cuomo, and Lemon for example.. 😱 Lmao!!

    CNN you just the same rhetoric over and over and over again I am so sick and tired of Chris Cuomo talking about the insurrection it was six months ago let it go MoveOn find a new topic. We are all sick and tired of you talking about Trump over and over and over again there’s new news to report. Why don’t you start talking about your brother for once reporting some thing on current news instead of something that happened six months ago like the insurrection. We’re all sick and tired of it let it go

      No one should move on from talking about trump! What happened on the capital hill is something that the whole world should know. Because on that day Americans who raided the capital showed the whole world how stupid and dumb people in America really are! And the sooner trump and his children are in jail, the faster everyone can breathe a sigh of relief and then move on with a heavy heart for the capital policeman who were killed and injured and traumatized. Those courageous and brave cops can have peace !

    I frequently jump from Fox back to CNN to see what other stations are saying. I never last longer than 15 minutes. Has this station become a personal stage for Dom Lemon and Andrew Cuomo to bash Trump. What happened to the "This is CNN" of the Gulf War I used to watch.

      The cnn Ratings Are Terrible. Tucker Carlson Has an average 2.5 MILLION viewers. Cnn primetime has 1.5 MILLION viewers. On an estimate. But cnn talks about theSAME THING ALL DAY , EVERYDAY. JAN.6TH. AND TRUMP. AND CNN IS SP BIAS. THEY DONT EVEN TRY TO COVER IT UP. I'M NOT A TRUMP FAN. BUT I AM A REPUBLICAN. JUST WATCHING THE DEMOCRATS PLAY THE RACE CARD. AND THE HYPOCRISY THAT THE DEMOCRATS PLAY. PRESIDENT BIDEN IS LOST. HE CANT EVEN TALK RIGHT. AND THE DEMS. HAVE MOST ALL THE NEWS MEDIA ON YOUR SIDE.

    He's probably happy to be laying right there, between Tapper and Vanderbilt.
    Tapper, always looking like he's trying to squeeze one out!

    Chris Cuomo is definitely my favorite. I enjoy watching him because he always brings the facts from the people involved in the situation or event they are discussing and he doesn't bring the drama. No funny faces, inflammatory rhetoric, or dramatic voices etc. Chris is not his brother and you can't blame him for what his brother did or didn't do. So far nothing has been proven, but in today's world proof doesn't matter anymore. He stated he would not discuss his brother on his show because he loved him and he is biased therefore he wouldn't discuss that subject. Now that is honorable behavior and I wish more followed that example, it used to be called recusing yourself when you have a personal interest. I also switch back and forth with Fox, but they are harder and harder to watch. They tell one lie after another and are so pessimistic that you end up feeling like the sky is falling. It is the lies that are really getting to me. On CNN I watch a video of an event and on Fox I watch them say this event never occurred. It is crazy making.

      You stupid heartless bimbo. You think Cuomo stopped talking about his brother because of his bias. Every CNN viewer should be ashamed. By April 20, 2020, your beloved Chris and CNN probably talked about the 1 in 1,000 New Yorkers that died but never told you about the 77 in 1,000 nursing home patients that died. Your beloved Chris praised the largest mass murderer in US history for his expert handling of covid. He never asked this mass murdered if the horror stories from nursing home were true. Horror stories from traumatized nursing home inmates who endured sleepless nights because of people crying and begging for oxygen that Cuomo refused to distribute from the USS Comfort. Do you think your beloved Chris and CNN did not hear these stories?

      You say Fox News lies. The reality is that CNN viewers are too stupid understand when they are being manipulated. You probably think it's a lie when Fox said Smartmatic has ties to Venezuela election but never bothered to read the NY Times article about the federal investigation into Smartmatic voting machines. Similarly, you think it's a lie that Dominion has ties to Venezuela voting machines because the Smartmatic investigation was stopped when Dominion purchased the Smartmatic division providing USA election equipment. There is no question that both companies have ties to Venezuela. The question is whether Venezuela has some sort of influence in those companies.

      CNN is about opinion instead of journalism. Fox presents far too much opinion and I would prefer they did more journalism. Fox still has Mike Wallace despite doing the unforgivable. He never asked Biden anything difficult or controversial during the presidential debate. I don't care if Biden can remember when he/she last changed his/her panties.

      I personally don't watch much CNN nor Fox because they are both about presenting opinion instead of news.
