Wow. I anticipated lower numbers for last night’s debate seeing as how it was up against the season premiere of a big primetime show.
Color me wrong:
Last night’s Democratic debate on CNN drew 8,300,000 million total viewers, making it the most-watched primary debate in cable news history, and the second-most watched on TV this election cycle (ABC’s Democratic debate on Jan. 5 drew 9,360,000)
The upside is that maybe this whole getting-involved-in-the-political-process thing is finally catching on.
That’d be cool.
