More Viewers Watched Palin Than Celebrity Obama

leave a comment »

Over 40 million viewers took time in their hectic day to listen and watch Sarah Palin give her acceptance speech despite several liberal channels not showing Palin’s speech. Barack Obama’s Superbowl acceptance rated 37 million viewers. Obviously more liberals had to see the competition than conservatives.

An audience of 37.2 million people watched Palin on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News Channel and MSNBC, Nielsen Media Research said Thursday. PBS estimated its audience at 3.9 million, based on a less reliable sample of several big cities. Nielsen does not count the audience for C-SPAN, which also showed the speech.

Last week, Nielsen said 38.4 million people watched Obama speak at a Denver stadium on the six commercial networks, along with BET, TV One, Univision and Telemundo – four networks that didn’t cover Palin’s speech. PBS added an estimated 4 million to that total.

Guess conservatives don’t need to waste their time seeing the second coming of the Messiah wannabe.
