ABC Gets Highest Debate Viewership Yet

abc_10-8.jpgABC was the top-rated network last night during the presidential debate, making it the #1 network for both presidential debates and Thursday’s VP debate.

ABC and FOX were the only networks to gain viewers from last week’s highly-rated Vice Presidential debate, which was tied for the 2nd highest rated debate of all time.

In post-debate analysis, ABC averaged 9.92 million Total Viewers, NBC 8.35 and CBS 7.95. The cablers post-debate analysis came in behind CBS, with FNC, CNN and MSNBC placing 4th-6th.

The overall viewership across all networks has yet to be released, but is expected to be less than Thursday’s VP debate.
