Nielsen’s preliminary data reveals ratings for VP debate down from 2012


PUBLISHED Wed, October 05, 2016 - 12:31pm EDT


Ratings from Tuesday's vice presidential debate between Republican Mike Pence and Democrat Tim Kaine is likely to end up with fewer viewers than the VP debates from 2012 and 2008, and could even end up with fewer viewers than in 2004, depending on how the final numbers look. According to very preliminary ratings data from Nielsen, the four broadcast networks were down slightly from the 2012 VP debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan. Total viewership could be less than half of what the first presidential debate between Donald trump and Hillary Clinton saw. That debate averaged 84 million viewers.
