Sad! Trump Lost 5 Million Cable Viewers for His RNC Speech Compared to 2016 [View all]

Donald Trump has always talked up his ratings, but he might want to avoid that after the 2020 Republican National Convention. Compared to the number of people who tuned in for his 2016 acceptance speech, Trump lost more than 5 million cable viewers for his 2020 RNC address, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Overall, across CNN, MSNBC and Fox News, 13.48 million total average viewers tuned in from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET Thursday night, when all three networks took the RNC live. Of those, 3.35 million were in the advertiser-coveted age demographic of 25 to 54.

In 2016, 18.6 million people tuned in from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. across the three cable networks and, of those, 5.57 million were in the demo, according to Nielsen ratings.

Trump didnít just see a drop in viewers relative to his own 2016 performance. He also came in second behind his Democratic rival Joe Biden whose acceptance speech, according to Nielsen, was watched by 14.67 million people.
