Dems Outpace RNC In Ratings (So Far)

Democratic National Convention viewership continued to pace ahead of 2008 on Wednesday night, despite formidable competition from the NFL. Seven networks averaged 25.1 million total viewers for second-day coverage from 10 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., according to Nielsen, up from 24 million for the equivalent night four years ago. So far the first two nights of the DNC have outdrawn the first two nights of the RNC.
