The final presidential debate drew a TV audience of 59.2 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media.
That's down from the 67.2 million and 65.6 million for the first and second debates, respectively. But it still shows huge interest -- particularly when you consider that the debate was up against a game seven in the National League Championshop series and"Monday Night Football," each of which together drew more than 18 million viewers.
That old dinosaur, the medium of television, is still drawing a few viewers, hey?
Here's the release from Nielsen:
While coverage varied by network, 10 networks aired live coverage from approximately 9:00PM to 10:30PM while Telemundo aired coverage on tape delay.
