PBS drew almost a million more viewers to its coverage of the Sarah Palin/Joe Biden vice presidential debate than it did for its coverage of the first presidential debate last week. 

That is according to Nielsen overnight numbers that showed 3.5 million viewers tuned in on average to PBS' debate and post-debate coverage between 9 and 11 p.m. That is compared to 2.6 million who tuned in Sept. 26 for the first presidential debate between Senators Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.).
