UPDATED: Biden Joint Session of Congress Ratings Are In: 22.6M Viewers Compared to Trump’s 48 Million Viewers — But Joe TOTALLY Had 81 Million Votes

UPDATED: Joe Biden’s Joint Session ratings are in and they are pathetic!
In the first report, Biden had only 11 million viewers and now he had 22.6 million viewers across 7 major networks — President Trump had 48 million viewers watching his first Joint Session speech!

And this guy had 81 million votes?

This was a disaster!

More from DEADLINE:

Joe Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress drew 22.6 million viewers across seven major networks.

That’s far short of the 43 million or so who tuned in to Donald Trump’s first speech to a joint session, on Feb. 28, 2017, across those seven networks.

According to fast national numbers from Nielsen, ABC topped coverage with 4.03 million, followed by MSNBC with 3.94 million, NBC with 3.54 million, CBS with 3.37 million, CNN with 3.18 million, Fox News with 2.92 million and Fox with 1.63 million.

In the 25-54 demo, ABC had 1.17 million, followed by NBC with 946,000, CNN with 879,000, CBS with 730,000, MSNBC with 656,000, Fox with 653,000 and Fox News with 586,000. The figures, released by CNN, exclude out of home viewing.

In unadjusted fast affiliate data, the President’s speech drew around 11.6 million viewers in the 9 PM ET hour. Add, Univision (1.08 million) and Telemundo (884,000) to that batch of ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox and the result inches up to 13.5 million for the speech that started around 9:10 PM ET.
