Updated May 29, 2018 10:57:13A year ago, Comcast’s CableTV service was the third-most-trusted source of television viewing for consumers.
Now, that rating has dropped from No. 2 in the U.S. to No. 12.
Comcast’s Cable TV Ratings dropped from a record-high of No. 1 in the first quarter of 2018 to No, 12 for the quarter ended March 31, according to the first weekly cable ratings released by Nielsen.
The cable service, which started in 2015, averaged an audience of 13.9 million total viewers in the quarter ending March 31.
Its cable TV ratings for the same quarter in 2019 were at 11.7 million.
Comedy Central was No. 4 in the overall cable television ratings for March, but it lost a significant amount of its audience in the same period.
The cable network’s cable ratings for its most recent quarter were up from 9.6 million in the previous quarter to 12.1 million in 2019.
The second-most popular network on cable was ESPN, which saw its ratings drop from No, 8 to No., according to Nielsen.
That was the most recent drop in ratings for a network that has been in the top 10 for years.
ESPN was No, 1 in both the quarter and the year before.
The network’s ratings dropped from 12.7 in 2019 to 9.9 in 2019, the year it moved to a national network.
In 2019, ESPN saw its average viewers dip from 11.3 million to 10.6.
That’s the lowest number of viewers the network has ever recorded for a quarter.
ESPN had its lowest viewership for the first time in four years in 2019 when it was down to 10 million viewers.
