21 Million Watch President’s Address to Congress on Big Three

21.2 million Total Viewers watched President Obama’s address to congress last night.

• 8.2M watched on NBC
• 7.4M watched on ABC
• 5.6M watched on CBS

FOX, the only broadcaster not to carry the president, drew 6.5M Total Viewers for the premiere of “So You Think You Can Dance?” during the 8pm hour.

The 21 million watching the president on the Big 3 nets last night tops the 19 million who watched his primetime news conference in April but nowhere near the 31 million who watched his second primetime news conference in March.
