The first presidential debate between Barack Obama and John McCain netted 52.4 million viewers and a 31.6 household rating. Tonight the candidates for vice president debated and many are speculating that the VP debate will out-rate the presidential debate.

It seems possible. For one, the presidential debate ran on a Friday when fewer people are typically home watching TV than Thursday. Plus, for reasons that aren’t really clear to me (and can’t be attributed entirely to Tina Fey!) Palin seems to have a lot of star power.

So who ya got? The presidential wannabes or the veep wannabes?
