Milwaukee Stations See Ratings Rise For Second Presidential Debate

The latest presidential debate proved more popular with viewers in Milwaukee than the first as 43,000 more households tuned in to watch Barack Obama and Mitt Romney square off a second time, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

NBC affiliate WTMJ averaged an 11.3 during the debate, ABC affiliate WISN pulled in a 10.3, FOX affiliate WITI saw a 6.9 and CBS affiliate WDJT drew a 3.7.  A rating point in Milwaukee is equal to 9,100 households.
