For the first time ever, CNN placed fourth among cable news networks in primetime total viewers last week.

CNN averaged just 576,000 total viewers, behind Fox News (2,015,000 total viewers), MSNBC (664,000 total viewers) and HLN (593,000 total viewers).

CNN regularly places fourth among Adults 25-54 viewers in primetime, but this is the first time the network has placed fourth for the week among total viewers.

Of course, for CNN coming in fourth means losing to its opinionated sister network, HLN. Last week, HLN's "Joy Behar Show" set two ratings records in as many nights, suggesting that her show, which launched in September, is beginning to catch on with viewers.
