Dems still earn the largest debate ratings with 18.1 million viewers but less than Trump & 24 million on Fox
Democrats still earn the largest debate ratings with 18.1 million viewers in NBC's three networks – but it is still less than the 24 million Trump generated on Fox
- NBC News broadcast two nights of democratic debates over three channels
- Hosted the first debates of the 2020 election alongside MSNBC and Telemundo
- Candidates were divided over two nights, randomly assigned to Wednesday or Thursday, ten presidential contenders every night
- The first night had 15.3 million viewers, while the second night saw 18.1 million
- It is a combined 34.4 million over two nights and three networks; but taken alone, each night was less than the 24 million viewers that Fox enjoyed
The Democrats' second evening debate generated 18.1 million viewers in three networks, making it the most viewed match-up in the party's history.
Copy the 15.3 million televisions that were tuned into the debate the first night, and Nielsen says that 34.4 million homes follow the debate on NBC, MSNBC or Telemundo.
The 2016 Republican debate, just before the Donald Trump election, earned 24 million viewers, in comparison.

Trump was not a fan of the first night of the debate. He issued a one-word rating: boring
Technical problems caused a collapse during the second hour on Wednesday evening, which led to Trump's mockery. He said the network was a & # 39; really unprofessional organization & # 39; and proved with the audio difficulty that it is & # 39; fake news & # 39; is
Trump said in a tweet after the debate the first night, on Wednesday, that the fight between former Rep. Beto O & Rourke, former Secretary for Housing and Urban Development, Julian Castro, Senbury, Elizabeth Warren and others, was not very inspiring.
He planned to tweet it from Air Force One, but sent a two-way tweet, instead he said: & # 39; Boring! & # 39;
A fiercer second night of fighting was reflected in Nielsen reviews when California's Senator Kamala Harris challenged Joe Biden about his history of working with segregationists.
She brought forward her childhood and the lifelong benefit of mandated bus work to force integration into schools and pushed Biden to say that the attitude he adopted in the 1970s was wrong.
Senator Bernie Sanders and his democratic socialist views were also on trial, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend had to answer for a shooting involving the police.
Trump claimed in a bilateral meeting with the German Angela Merkel that he was not watching. Yet he tweeted a few minutes earlier about a question to the Democrats about providing health care to illegal immigrants.
& # 39; What about taking care of American citizens first !? That is the end of that race! & # 39; he claimed.
The president later noted that he was busy meeting world leaders. He claimed he had heard it was a bad show for Biden and Sanders.
& # 39; I'm in Japan on the G-20 and represent our country well, but I heard it wasn't a good day for Sleepy Joe or Crazy Bernie. One is exhausted, the other is crazy – so what's the problem? & # 39; he tweeted while most Americans slept.
A release from NBC put it forward as & # 39; the best democratic debate ever & # 39 ;, showing that one live stream added another 9 million viewers to the total viewers. Users watched the two-hour debate on average 50 minutes, the network said.

According to NBC data, all platforms on which the debate was viewed amounted to 45 million total views for both nights that the debate was viewed.
Network anchors Lester Holt, Savannah Guthrie, Chuck Todd, Rachel Maddow and José Díaz-Balart took turns moderating, with Maddow and Todd commanding the last hour of every night.
