Stelter’s program averaged only 810,000 total viewers and a dismal 163,000 among the key demographic of adults age 25-54 on May 2, for its worst performance of the year in both categories.
To make matters worse for Stelter, his own show performed better last week when replacement host John Avlon filled in. The Avlon-hosted edition of “Reliable Sources” on April 25 averaged 907,000 for nearly a 100,000-viewer increase over Stelter’s return.
Avlon also topped Stelter’s most recent episode in the key demo, averaging 182,000 viewers among the group coveted by advertisers.

Now that’s embarrassing:

Couldn’t happen to a bigger tater. He’s just a parody now.

America is on a low-carb diet and that means a hard pass on potatoes.
