dnc-2016-night-2-ratings

The second night of the Democratic National Convention came down a little in the ratings from Monday’s opening night, just as they did for the Republican convention last week.

Coverage on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News and MSNBC drew a combined 24.3 million viewers Tuesday for their 10 p.m. ET coverage), off from 25.87 million Monday. That still compares favorably to day two of the RNC, which averaged 19.4 million viewers across the same six channels. (All averages are through the end of primetime coverage at 11:15 p.m. ET.)

CNN was once again the leader with 5.93 million viewers and a 1.7 rating in adults 25-54, the target demo for news. NBC was close behind with 5.28 million viewers and a 1.6 in adults 25-54.

Here are the viewer averages and adults 25-54 and 18-49 ratings for Tuesday’s 10-11:15 p.m. ET convention coverage and the two-day average for the convention.
