The VP Debate

I was at a board meeting for a local charity, so I missed the VP debate on Tuesday night. Turns out, so did about fifty million other people who watched the presidential debate. From TV Newser...

Tuesday night’s debate drew 37.16 million total viewers across nine networks, per early Nielsen data. 13.77 million watched on cable (Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, Fox Business), while 23.32 million watched on the English language broadcast nets (ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and PBS). This is the lowest total for a VP debate since the 29 million who tuned into Cheney–Lieberman in 2000.
