CNN had a rough Wednesday night. Despite ongoing coverage of the health care hearings, the cable news network pulled in its lowest primetime ratings in over a year — approaching the record lows from summer 2012 — and falling below both HLN and CNBC.

The big three (Fox News Channel, MSNBC and CNN) all saw lifts earlier in the day during live coverage of Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius’ testimony, and CNN even posted second-place status to FNC during the key 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. hours, but it faltered in the evening.

The network averaged just 67,000 viewers in the targeted adults 25-54 demographic between 8 and 11 p.m. That put CNN behind HLN (93,000) and CNBC (79,000) and, more distantly, runner-up MSNBC (127,000) and first-place FNC (396,000).
