Al Jazeera America continued its shaky start last week, scoring zero for some daytime television programs and registering only in the single digits for others in the key demographic of ages 25-54.

The network’s worst performer in primetime last week was “Consider This” with Antonio Mora, finishing out the week with an average of 9,000 total viewers and only 3,000 in the demo, Mediaite.com reported.
