Convention Speech Viewership


A record 38.9 million U.S. TV viewers watched John McCain accept the Republican nomination for president on Thursday, slightly more than the 38.3 million people who tuned in for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's speech, Nielsen Media Research reported.

Surprising to me, McCain also had more viewers than the highly anticipated Sarah Palin speech seen by 37.2 million on Wednesday.
