When you already know what this jerk is going to say, why bother tuning in? If our math is right, about 324 million Americans didn’t bother watching that shitshow.
With news of the fatal attack in Nice unfolding in real time and controversy over promises the daughter of Eric Garner says ABC News made her about asking a question, the network’s The President And The People: Race In America (1.0/4) felt like both old news and breaking news simultaneously last night.
Barack Obama, the biggest victim of the France terror attack.
As cable news covered events in France, the one-hour pre-taped commercial-free special, with President Barack Obama was a ratings middleweight for ABC. Drawing 5.76 million viewers, the David Muir hosted town hall, which was also shown on ESPN and Freeform, certainly did better than when the President was on CNN back on January 7 for a Guns In America town hall. That Anderson Cooper question and answer pulled in 2.4 million total viewers. And the convo with the Commander-in-Chief was up a tenth from what a new BattleBots had in the slot last week. However, the ABC town hall was easily topped in the demo and in total viewers (7.20 million) by a The Big Bang Theory (1.5/7) repeat at 8PM – leaving CBS to win the slot.
He’s such a failure.
