Broadcast networks’ impeachment viewership falls short of soap operas

Only the demorat media and TDS-infected libtards are watching.

From Fox News: Perhaps the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump is not dramatic enough because ratings on the broadcast networks failed to exceed the average ratings of daytime soap operas, according to a new study.

ABC, NBC and CBS dedicated its daytime programming this week to the newly launched impeachment trial, which meant that popular soaps like “General Hospital” and “Days of Our Lives” were shelved. However, a study from NewsBusters suggests the broadcast networks would have been better off airing its normally scheduled programming.

According to cited Nielsen data, CBS averaged 1.52 million viewers on Wednesday, which was Day One of the opening arguments made by the House managers, while ABC averaged 1.29 million viewers and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.

The daytimes soaps easily overshadowed the impeachment ratings. According to NewsBusters, CBS’s “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and “The Bold & The Beautiful” averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s “General Hospital” averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” averages 1.95 million viewers.

The comparisons are even more drastic on Thursday as broadcast ratings dipped on the second day of opening arguments. CBS averaged 1.4 million viewers while ABC had 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Trump will most likely gain voters from the soap opera viewers as a result 😄

As it’s already been said, if they had real dirt on him they would have pounced long ago.

Talk about a Big “Ho-Hum.” Considering all of the millions Pelosi and her clan has flushed down the toilet on this farce–it leaves me permanently nauseated!

I had been watching as much as I could stomach with the House hearings, to get the facts and keep the Dems honest. But when it became obvious the Senate hearings were just a re-hash ad nauseum by the Dems of the pre-contrived narrative, facts be damned, I stopped. They didn’t even bother debating the rules — just complain and use the time to bellow the SOS.

Just the sound or sight of Schiff or The Penguin make me nauseated.

Still watching this… questions today. IMHO, Nadler should be excused to tend to his wife who is dying with cancer. He’s obviously not there mentally. Trump says there’s hate from real-estate deals they fought over in the past. Nadler sounds like a madman. And now I know how Hakeem Jeffries, the first-year Dem Caucus chair from NY, got onto the House J Committee with Nadler and these Senate hearings as a manager in the impeachment… He’s also been appearing weekly on the Sunday morning news wrap shows. Schiff and Hakeem are so far in left field with respect to reality,… Read more »
