Monday Ratings: Obama Rules Over Primetime
As depressing as economy talk might be, President Obama had people listening. Last night’s news conference raked in approximately 49.5 million over eight networks. While it was clearly the biggest event of the evening, the presidential presser paled in comparison to Bill Clinton’s first newser in February 1993. (That primetime event drew in 64.3 million.) Although its news coverage came in second, CBS ended up winning the night in both categories.
- ABC‘s coverage of the Obama presser (3.1/8 in 18-49) pulled in 11.49 million.
- Approximately 9.78 million watched the conference on CBS (3.0/8).
- NBC had 9.75 million (3.1/8) listening about the economy.
- FOX attracted 5.9 million (2.2/6) for the newser.
- Gossip Girl* (1.7 million, 0.8/2) was down 600,000.
