37.2 million tune in for Palin

ST. PAUL -- The McCain campaign must be giddy with this news, just out from Nielsen: Sarah Palin's speech generated 37.2 million viewers, just a 1.1 million viewers fewer than watch Barack Obama's Invesco Field acceptance speech. As Nielsen notes, only six networks carried Palin's speech compared with ten for Obama's.

  1. As it turns out, it was more than that. Neilson didn't count four stations, including PBS, that carried the speech. They counted those stations when they reported on Obama.
