Guess Whose New Show Has Plummeted in Ratings to Become Cable's Least-Watched Primetime Show??

No, not Fake Tapper, though he's always a contender.

Shep "They're eating babies in the Superdome because global warming" Smith.

He's now routinely falling behind Fox Business repeats.

Shepard Smith, once a star anchor at Fox News, made headlines last year when he abruptly left the network. Now, his highly anticipated -- and heavily promoted -- new show at CNBC is falling behind repeats of Fox Business show Lou Dobbs Tonight.

...

Bringing in an average of 343,000 total viewers in its first week according to Nielsen, the show dropped to 268,000 in its second week, 254,000 in its third, and is set to continue to decline for week four (ratings for last Friday will be in later today).

...

Between September 30 and October 22, The News with Shepard Smith was at the bottom of 7 p.m. cable news ratings -- behind MSNBC's Joy Reid, CNN's Erin Burnett and Fox News’ Martha MacCallum -- with an average of 272,000 viewers.

Sheppie used to get ratings of one million or more at Fox. Or, I should say, Fox News garnered ratings of one million even while temporarily featuring Shep Smith.

But Shep Smith thought he was the secret sauce.
