This past week, Reliable Sources indicated its lowest-rated week of the year in the key 25-54 demo with only 85,000 viewers in this category, according to Nielsen Media Research.
This number sets Reliable Sources behind some cartoon repeats, including Spongebob, Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol, Bob's Burgers, and even reruns of the ‘80s and '90s hits The Golden Girls and Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
The weak numbers also indicate that Reliable Sources could not reach over 800,000 total viewers in the seventh consecutive week.
The show also lost to Fox News' 11 am counterpart MediaBuzz, who got 1,473,000 total viewers and 157,000 in the key 25-54 demographic.
Mediabuzz received 109 percent more in total viewers and 85 percent in the key demographic.
Stelter's bad ratings come after Reliable Sources had journalist Bari Weiss on as a guest, who took Stelter to talk on media coverage of key events last year.
Weiss has written that many Americans "feel the world has gone mad," so the left-wing CNN host asked her what she meant by that comment.
"Where can I start? Well, when you have the chief reporter on the beat of COVID for The New York Times talking about how questioning or pursuing the question of the lab leak is racist, the world has gone mad. When you're not able to say out loud, and in public, there are differences between men and women, the world has gone mad. When we're not allowed to acknowledge that rioting is rioting and it is bad and that silence is not violence, but violence is violence, the world has gone mad," Weiss said. "When you're not able to say the Hunter Biden laptop is a story worth pursuing, the world has gone mad. When, in the name of progress, young school children, as young as kindergarten, are being separated in public schools because of their race, and that is called progress instead of segregation, the world has gone mad. There are dozens of examples."
Stelter then asked, "Who are the people stopping the conversation?" Weiss responded with a jab at CNN.
"People who work at networks, frankly, like the one I'm speaking on right now, say it was racist to investigate the lab leak theory," Weiss said.
It was unclear who Weiss was referring to with her statement. Nevertheless, CNN and other media outlets publicly mocked the narrative that the coronavirus may have leaked from a Wuhan lab before gaining mainstream credence this year. In June, CNN medical contributor Dr. Leana Wen remarked that any investigation of the lab theory shouldn't lead to anti-Asian discrimination.
