    1st night of Democratic National Convention reaches 26.2M viewers, nearly 4M more than RNC - The Washington Post

    NEW YORK — Michelle Obama has bragging rights over Ann Romney in one early measurement — television ratings.

    The Nielsen Co. said about 26.2 million people watched the opening night of the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday in Charlotte, N.C., where the first lady was the featured speaker.

    Last week, Nielsen said 22.3 million watched the first night of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., where potential first lady Ann Romney talked about her husband, Mitt.

    ...

    Michelle Obama was a big hit Monday in a measurement by the social media network Twitter. The company said she was responsible for at least 28,003 tweets per minute shortly after she delivered her speech.

    By contrast, the peak moment at the GOP convention was 14,289 tweets per minute during Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech, Twitter said.

    Bill Clinton Draws More Viewers Than N.F.L. Opener - NYTimes.com

    More people watched former President Bill Clinton’s speech to the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night than tuned in to see the N.F.L. season opener.

    But the game appeared to cut into the convention’s ratings, which were lower than Tuesday night’s.

    According to preliminary ratings from Nielsen, 20.6 million watched the convention from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m., while 20.1 million people watched the New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys game during the same hour.

    Seems very insignificant if you ask me ...

    Michelle Obama has the advantage of already being in the national limelight.

    That being said ... where does a thread like this go from here ... what is it that they do?

    Re: Michelle beats Ann

    There was a thread where some people were commenting that Ann beat Michelle, so that's why I decided to post this. At any rate, it seems that every thread in the political forum finds a place to go. Sometimes I think of browsing through the original post and the final post of some of our longer threads, because I bet the disconnect is very often very extreme.

    Re: Michelle beats Ann

    What do you know? I've been waiting this whole campaign for something that would convince me of where I should cast my vote. Now it's as clear as it can be. Bill Clinton got a better TV rating than the Giants game did. Obviously my vote needs to go to Obama.:rolleyes:

    Re: Michelle beats Ann

    It came from here:

    http://www.patsfans.com/new-england...863-democrats-set-move-obamas-big-speech.html

    I think it's good to post follow-up information. I keep hoping it will make people think about their sources and maybe wait a bit before crowing about one thing or another - just to get confirmation from a more legitimate site than Baithbart.

    It's interesting that CPF thought it was a huge win for Ann to get 400,000 more viewers than Michelle - and yet he's not been saying a word about the fact that the truth is - Michelle got 4 MILLION more viewers.

    In fact, I can pretty much guarantee you that the number will be minimized by those who do not like the Obama family - but, had it been true, they would have celebrated the 400,000 number as proof of a tremendous difference in interest.

    Same thing here:
    Well, now we know...and maybe people shouldn't be quite so sure of themselves - or their candidates.

    I was going to make a Honey Boo Boo thread ... man we are seriously swirling down the chute as a country ... and this mom ... I'm trying to get better decorum in the forum so I'll leave it to your imagination what I think of her. Without makeup ... Honey Boo Boo is just some random fat kid. Not that that's a bad thing ... mom should let her be a normal kid.

    I can honestly say.... I did not watch Ann's or Michelle's speech.
    Who did better..... ???? I sure don't know.

    I do know that you can not get the truth from the media.
    I remember the Shannon OBrien vs Mitt Romney final debate.
    moderated by Tim Russert

    OBrien made a fool of herself.
    She would not let Romney answer questions, she kept interuppting him
    and he eventually told her (as a gentleman), her interuptions were not becoming.

    I still remember the puzzled look on Tim Russert's face when she asked him if
    he wanted to see her tatoo.

    I watched the debate at work with a good mix of liberals, conservatives, and
    independents.

    Everyone agreed, that OBrien, blew the debate more than Romney won it.

    They were in a statistical dead heat before that debate.

    The next day in the Boston Globe..... the Headlines..... "Shannon on Points".
    The race was a toss up before the debate, and after the debate Romney
    was Govenor.

    Nice job Boston Globe.

    The only bragging rights that matter, are the one's either Ann or Michelle will have in the early morning hours of November 7th. Speeches by wives in September mean didly poo.

    What in the name of didly poo is that trailer park family in that picture supposed to represent, and what the heck is Hoo Boo?

    Ann, Michelle and Bill... If any of them were running for President then the ratings "might" mattter. Probably not, but that is the only way they would ;)

    I guess you have to grab victory where you can.
