Which Presidential Debates Drew The Biggest TV Audiences? #infographic

After Tuesday's turbulent presidential debate that shook the world, the United States is slowly starting to catch its breath. For the 90-minute case, Nielsen released its TV ratings and it attracted 73.1 million viewers, making it the third most watched debate in history. Despite the fact that the contest on Tuesday tracks the 84.4 million number for the first debate of Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton as well as the 80.6 million that tuned in for the 1980 debate between Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter, the audience was still huge and it was the largest U.S. TV case since the Super Bowl last February.

The number of individuals who were exposed to the screaming match is possibly much greater than the statistic of Nielsen, which only takes TV viewers into account. In other ways , people have followed the debate, such as video streaming, through news feeds or listening to it on the radio. One potential explanation for the drop in viewers compared to the first debate in 2016 is the amount of people streaming the show, though voter fatigue may have played a role in some people avoiding it. Nielsen's data reveals, despite its uncomfortable nature, that almost all audiences watched the debate in its entirety.
