Obama, Biden and Hollywood Elites a Ratings BOMB for DNC
Wednesday night was supposed to be a ratings bonanza for the DNC.
Unfortunately, despite Obama and Biden headlining the evening TV viewers were turned off.
They’ve heard all the lies before.
The former Secretary of State will be the headliner tonight, but last night saw NBC and ABC tie in that 10 PM slot where the Big 3 are showing the DNC live. Looking at the 10 – 11 PM ET hour, the Comcast-owned net and the Disney-owned net both got a 0.7/4 rating among adults 18-49. In overall viewers in early numbers, NBC was tops with 3.6 million viewers and ABC had 2.7 million. CBS was third with a 0.4 and 2.0 million watching. With President Obama speaking until around 11:15 PM ET, which is when Clinton made her cameo, expect a greater than usual adjustment later today.
Even with all the big names onstage last night, convention-to-convention, the combined rating of the DNC stumbled against Donald Trump and the RNC. Day 3 in Philadelphia was down 18% in the fast affiliates key demo from the drama of Day 3 in Cleveland when Ted Cruz refused to endorse the candidate and running mate Mike Pence spoke.
