Cuomo Prime Time Ratings
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.

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.
