More people watched NFL than Clinton


9/6/12 3:13 PM EDT

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — 23.9 million people watched the NFL season opener between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys on NBC last night, more than the entire audience for former President Bill Clinton's convention speech across the five other broadcast and cable networks, according to early Nielsen fast nationals from NBC Sports.

In the 10 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. block, roughly 20 million people watched Clinton's speech on ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC and Fox: 4.6 million people watched ABC, 4.5 million watched MSNBC, 4.4 million watched CBS, 4.3 million watched CNN, and just over 3 million watched Fox News, according to the early numbers provided by CNN.

Two nights in a row now, NBC has come out on top.

Interesting for the D convention the second highest numbers go to MSNBC during the R the second highest went to Fox... 

What was the ratings for the second night at the GOP convention last week?

Interestingly, NBC apparently cut to Sandra Fluke during halftime, being the only one of the Big Three broadcast nets to carry her speech. Fluke of course catered to the hard-left NARAL crowd. CBS and ABC viewers saw Clinton's capitulating to the center.

Negative campaign bounce is a-comin'...
