Barack Obama and Mitt Romney Beat Justin Bieber, Christina Aguilera… in Ratings

timthumb-18.php

Remember the ratings for the three presidential debates? The first was watched by 72 million people.  The  third, which was the lowest rated, reached 59 million viewers.

Interestingly, the “American Music Awards” suffered the smallest audience in 40 years of the show’s history — 11 million people — on Sunday night. Even though the broadcast featured performances by Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Christina Aguilera, Usher, Carrie Underwood and Pitbull, the show still didn’t top any of the presidential debate performances in audience share or total numbers.

“An estimated 59.2 million people tuned in across 11 networks to watch Monday’s final face-off between President Barack Obama and Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney before Election Day,” the Washington Post wrote in October.
