31.1 Million Watch Obama News Conference on Broadcast Nets

Based on Nielsen Fast National data, 31.1 million viewers tuned in across the big four broadcast networks at 8pmET to watch President Obama’s second prime time news conference of his presidency. That’s down more than two million viewers from his first news conference February 24.

NBC led with 9.8 million, followed by ABC with 8.7 million, CBS drew 8.3 million and Fox had 4.3 million. More accurate numbers should be released later today as well as the numbers for cable news viewership.

Note: The viewership is approximate as fast national data measures timeslot and not actual program data.
