Brutal first night DNC ratings and tonight, NFL starts...ouch!!! the mainstream spin is using the combined total on all channels and comparing (I admit, nice, but NOPE)...
Forget Honey Boo Boo, most things on TV last night beat the DNC...had to hear that last week, so equal time...NBC won the networks with 5.3 million, then CBS with 3.2 mil and ABC with 2.5...Brutal..cable coming. See, NBC wins the nets and will NOT be airing it tonight so they lose that chunk, too..who had the worse ratings???? a rerun on NCIS had 7 mil. AGT had 8.6 mil...see how silly that was last week??? head-to-head, NBC wins...that is all that really matters..but let's see if mainstream media notes the lousy numbers and their spin..if it was a story last week, it is this week, too. Be consistent.
Hmmm. NBC cannot cover the DNC in prime time on Sept. 5 - - it is the kickoff to the NFL season on NBC. Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants..football ratings will be HUGE...will beat convention even when you add up all the networks combined...Wednesday night is Bill Clinton's speech...football always rules the TV ratings...
UPDATE: Ratings last night (Sept. 5)...
Football - 21.81 million
Add up the following networks which covered the speech: and it only adds up to 16.3 million
CBS, 3.9 mil
ABC, 3.5 mil
MSNBC, 3.3 mil
CNN, 2.9 mil
Fox News, 2.7 mil
But, adding them up is a bit unfair since they must be broken up in order to figure in to the way we do those things. But, one network (NBC) had more than the others - combined. This will be ignored....football rules and it was a bit off last year's opener, too. Then, take the usual 4-5 million from NBC and then a tie might happen. Again, football on one network beats politics on many...and that is why they went with football.
