BREAKING: DNC Has Sharp Decline in Viewership Compared to 2016

The virtual opening night for the Democratic National Convention averaged viewers from CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN totaled 18.68 million viewers which is a 28% decrease from the opening night in 2016.

The New York Post says a decline was to be expected because many viewers opt to view through streaming services which isn’t factored into standard TV ratings.

In 2016, the six main television programs had a combined number of 25 million viewers, this year they reached a total of 19 million during the 10 o’clock hour.

Maybe a “red pill” is to blame for this drop in viewers this year? Time will tell, and we’ll find out November 3rd. #Trump2020
