(Hallmark Channel is #6...really?!?! Old ladies must watch that network in droves!)
2019 was NOT a good year for either AMC, FX, Disney Channel or Adult Swim.
ESPN seems to be holding its own very well, especially with live sports.
Hallmark's ratings increase is likely due to its popular Christmas movies.
Not really surprised that general entertainment networks are down. I think that will continue in 2020. I'm actually surprised that minimal- to low- watched channels like MTV Classic and MTV2 are still hanging on.
It especially seems worse for kids's channels, as their target audiences are no longer watching linear TV to get their content.
I predict the big 3 news networks will get big ratings with this being a pivotal election year. I also predict that they all will get record-high ratings on election day.
