An estimated 35.7 million people watched the third and final night of the 2012 Democratic National Convention on Thursday, September 6. [...]

While coverage varied by network, all thirteen aired live coverage from approximately 10:00 p.m. to 11:15 p.m. The chart below highlights the sum of the average audience for these networks during common coverage.

While noted in the "Networks Included" lists, it's worth calling out the fact that PBS was not rated during the 2008 conventions, as it is now, and any PBS viewership in 2008 was not counted.

    Well that was interesting. Mr. Brazil, Cat and her sister Precious Ballou, a smart Alec, very interesting. Obama will win the debates… big in the first of the three and then less so in the following 2 debates. Both Mitt and Ryan are having dental trouble as they have been talking out of both sides, seemingly both moving at the same time.
    When Romney can not come up an answer for “How are you going to produce 12 million jobs in 4 years?” Other than his, ‘You know the rich, they will start spending … you know, cause they are not spending it now…they hate him.’
    His colors, as it were, will show through. Mormon, yes, nice, yes, an honest leader, no. He’s the third Koch Brother, and all the kings horses and all the kings men, etc.
