In the big picture 10m is not even remarkable, nor a couple million either way. Compared to online views...

And that points out a very good point.  It's a lot easier to get ABC on streaming, but damned near impossible to get PMSNBC.  I suppose it's findable, but it's not worth it just to get Joy Reid.   :shrug:

The broadcast version of NBC is Unobtainable.

The ability to stream really, really skews the ratings.  As an aside, I can't get NBC at all on the free air where I live.  Can't get PBS either, but that's no loss.  (As another aside, I used to work for a PBS station that had a distinction:  They were one of the few stations in the country that weren't dead last in the local ratings.)

I will NOT comply.

No doubt both are available... if not directly, then by second/third sources. I wonder what the views will be after online streaming matures.

Its no nevermind to me otherwise. I was just interested in the statistics. I don't watch any of the presidential crap anyway.

Trying to divine the public sentiment by ratings is a fools errand.  People could be watching simply because they've had wall-to-wall Trump, and Shortbus Joe has been cloistered in his basement.  They want to hear what he has to say without interruption, and by golly, they got it last night.  Not good for Joe.

Ain't good ratings anyway either way.

I'm sure at least a couple of million people watched just to marvel at Sloe Joe's ability to form words.

The fact that Pres. Trump speaks to crowds every day...and night, it's not a surprise that millions of his base tuned in to see if Joe Biden was getting massaged or if he started drooling, etc..

As far back as i can remember, Presidential debates have always heavily favored democrats, and more often than not trashed Republicans as best as they can.  Expecting fair and equal treatment from democrats means your either very new to politics or an I.Q. far lower than you realize. 22222frying pan

Did you miss the part where the town hall audience hung around afterwards to tell the President "we've got your back", "we love you" and take selfies with him?   :laugh:

@Right_in_Virginia

I may be wrong,but I think pretty much everyone who is even casually interested in national politics know by now how the media and the Dims try to stack the deck against Trump,while completely ignoring the FACT that Slow Joe is a senile old fool.

IMHO,the Dims once again "overreached",and are going to lose this election because of it.

If they think Bad Orange Man was tough on them in the first term,wait until the second term,and he no longer gives a damn WHAT they say about him. I suspect he is going to start issuing a lot of executive orders when the Dims try to block him,and this is going to end up causing the Dims and their RINO brothers a LOT of problems during the mid-term elections. Even with their standard and advanced cheating,the Dims are going to take a whooping.

The casual voters are starting to pay attention to what is going on,and they ain't liking it.

You'd be surprised at how many people I know that actually think they're getting a square view of the world from CNN.  True.

Once Biden was finished getting a tongue bath, his back rubbed and a happy ending, they probably threw a coat over him and ushered him out the back door, sidestepping the chance of running into a hard question. Old folks gotta avoid speak-and-fall injuries, you know.

That is a shame, on both accounts.(fire & only 2 photos left) but,  you are a handsome rascal!    :yowsa:
