All week we’ve written about the huge ratings put up due to the presidential election, from the morning to the evening, to the late evening, from Sunday morning to Sunday evening, from the cablers to the broadcast networks.

The day after Election Day, November 5, the show had its most-watched telecast ever, with 6,170,000 Total Viewers.
