CNN's "Campbell Brown" hit a new ratings low for 2009 on Friday, June 19, when she averaged just 516,000 total viewers.

Brown's previous 2009 low had come Monday, June 15, when a total of 548,000 viewers tuned in to her 8PM show. On Friday, June 12, Brown recorded an all-time low with an average of 69,000 viewers in the adults 25-54 demographic, while averaging 591,000 total viewers.

Brown's show has recently undergone a rebrand in the wake of her return from maternity leave earlier this month. The show had previously been called "Campbell Brown: No Bias, No Bull." In spite of the name change, CNN maintained that Brown's show would "continue to stand for no nonsense, hard-hitting interviews and lively debate from all points of view."

Brown, who despite her ratings woes was recently named a potential breakout star by Forbes, is not alone. Both ABC's and CBS' evening news programs suffered all-time ratings lows last week.

Ratings for the month of June and the second quarter of 2009 are due out next week.
