CNN host Brian Stelter has reached a new low in viewers this week, with show Reliable Sources being eclipsed by reruns of popular TV shows in key demographic set.

This past week, Reliable Sources marked 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 puts Reliable Sources behind several cartoon repeats including Spongebob, Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol, Bob’s Burgers and even re-runs of 80’s and 90’s hits The Golden Girls and Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

The weak numbers also marks the seventh consecutive week that Reliable Sources failed to reach over 800,000 total viewers.

The show also lost to Fox News' 11am counterpart MediaBuzz, who received 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 poor ratings comes after Reliable Sources had journalist Bari Weiss on as a guest, who took Stelter to task on media coverage of key events in the last year.
