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!
Joe’s ratings were almost as bad as the Oscars’ ratings this year.
Evidently, people don’t like being lied to.
Joint Session Address ratings:
TRUMP 2017— 48M
TRUMP 2018— 46M
TRUMP 2019— 46.8M
TRUMP 2020— 37.2M
BIDEN 2021— 11.6M

And this guy had 81 million votes?
JUST IN – Ratings are in: 11.6 million people watched Biden’s speech last night. 48 million people watched Trump’s first State Of The Union address. Trump’s lowest was at 37 million.

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.
