Former Fox News Never Trumper Shepard Smith Is Watching His Career Crash And Burn

(Tea Party 247) – One-time star of Fox News, Shepard Smith, abruptly left the network last year after spending the majority of the Trump administration complaining about the commander-in-chief.

He eventually landed a new show at CNBC, but it is a major flop, predictably.

Mediaite reports that the show is rating so low, it’s even less watched than reruns of Fox Business show Lou Dobbs Tonight!

That is a financial show, by the way, so hardly valuable as a repeat.

Yikes, Shep.

The brilliantly named program, The News with Shepard Smith, has tried hard to be professional, fast-hitting news program but has struggled to maintain viewers.

According to Nielsen, the show brought in an average of 343,000 total viewers in the first week.

By the second week, however, viewers had dropped to 268,000, then to just 254,000 in the third.

Well into its fourth week, the decline is set to continued.

What’s even more grim for the notorious Never Trumper is that viewership in the crucial 25-54 demo has been dramatically lower, dropping from a very modest 58,000 to just 48,000 the following week.

In other words, the largest group of people who watch prime time programming want nothing to do with this disaster.

From September 30 to October 22, Smith’s 7 p.m. program ranked at the bottom of the other cable news’ programs airing at that time, including MSNBC’s Joy Reid, CNN’s Erin Burnett, and Fox News’ Martha MacCallum.

Smith averaged just 272,000 viewers.

Mediaite also notes that, as far as competition with business networks go, Smith ranked behind the 7 p.m. repeat of Fox Business’ Loud Dobbs Tonight, which first airs two hours prior at 5 p.m.

This second airing of the top FBN program pulled in 305,000 viewers—quite a bit more than Smith’s.

For comparison, when Shepard Smith Reporting still aired at Fox News in the 3 p.m. slot, it averaged over one million viewers.

And was even sometimes higher among the 25-54 demographic than his new program’s prime time slot!

The last month that Shep was at FNC, September 2019, his show averaged 1.3 million viewers and 195,000 in the demo.

Now, you may have already guessed that shows that air in the middle of the afternoon, like Shepard Smith reporting, typically rate less than those that run at 7 p.m., when far more people are watching television.

So it is very significant that his afternoon show at Fox News rated higher than his brand new evening show on another network.

Mediaite notes that in July, their “senior editor Joe DePaolo predicted that although Smith’s new CNBC show would likely be ‘terrific,’ few people would ever see it.

“Shepard Smith is superb at what he does. His integrity is impeccable. He delivers the news without fear or favor. He pulls no punches during interviews with newsmakers on both sides of the aisle,” DePaolo wrote.

“And his new show is likely doomed. Completely, hopelessly doomed,” DePaolo declared. He explained that since cable news viewers tend to appreciate opinion and arguments, few were likely to follow him over to CNBC.

“Odds are that his new show will not upset many. But that’s only because they won’t be watching in the first place,” DePaolo concluded.

The outlet speculates that CNBC will be making some changes to the fledgling program.

The network provided this statement to Mediaite:

“We are pleased with the launch of The News with Shepard Smith and have received very positive feedback from viewers. Not only is CNBC a new entrant in the general news genre, but news viewers are creatures of habit and it takes a long time to change those habits. That said, the newscast far exceeds the audience of The Kudlow Report, which was the last regular news program to air on CNBC in the 7p hour back in the first quarter of 2014. We will continue to fight for every viewer every weeknight. Tune in to CNBC again tonight for more of the facts, the truth and The News with Shepard Smith at 7pm ET and follow us on Twitter @thenewsoncnbc,” they wrote.

    Democrats always promise far more than they can legally deliver. But in the end it is ALWAYS the taxpayer who picks up the bill!!
    For your own safely always vote Republican not that they are more honest, but they are more likely to deliver on their promises.The Democrats led by Pelosi are absolutely dishonest!!

  16. To each his own I guess. Whenever ‘sweet Shep’ was on Fox, I would switch to OANN – I always got the feeling he was DEFINITELY biased. I was happy when he left.

  17. Shepard Smith is a slimy sleezeball. Funny how his producer says he can be unbiased. If that was so, he would never have gotten FIRED from FOX. People were sick and tired of his daily rants about the president, but trying to disguise it.
    He found out that it was not him that was great but he was part of a great network… good riddance.

  19. Shep Smith is not worth my time. He lies, has no news, I watched him once for about 15 minutes, that was 15 minutes wasted from my life. You, CNBC, do better with Shark Tank.

  20. There was a time not so long ago that I would watch Shepard Smith on FNC because I had nothing better to do. I still have nothing better to do, but the more I watched his show, the less I cared for his ATTITUDE! His untimely departure from FNC was actually a blessing in disguise. I no longer have to tolerate his snark and his whining, and my day is much more enjoyable as a result!

  21. Shep Smith clearly showed his hatred of President trump and his supporters. Smith ended his shows with a
    pathetic display of bias and became more and more unprofessional. No one cares about his opinion.

  23. The problem with Shepard Smith’s reporting is that his hateful prejudices completely crowd out any objective and truthful perspectives.

  24. For those that are faithful fox News viewers…we would never watch another network just because one of the host bailed out to another network controlled by leftist….which is all the networks except fox and newsweek….
