How Low Can You Go?

For Al Jazeera America, there’s nearly less than zero:

The network’s worst performer in primetime last week was 10 p.m.’s Consider This, hosted by Antonio Mora. The current affairs talk show finished out the week with an average of 9k total viewers and only 3k in the demo. According to Nielsen ratings figures, on Thursday evening the show racked up a 0 in the demo score.

The network’s flagship program, 9 p.m.’s America Tonight never hit rock-bottom with the 0 demo rating, but things didn’t look so pretty regardless. The newsmagazine-style show pulled in an average of 18.6k total viewers, with 7.4k in the demo.

Other AJAM primetime shows like Ali Velshi‘s Real Money fared better for the week (30.6k total/14.8k demo), but on a few nights managed to dip into the single digits and, yes, zero demo ratings.

I think that’s only slightly worse than Al Gore’s old Current TV, which Al Jazeera purchased and replaced.
