Thursday marked the second day in a row that the cable ratings were dominated by the 2020 Democratic Debates.
As the second round of candidates stepped up to the plate to make their pitch for the presidency, MSNBC’s broadcast of the event was able to score a powerful 1.0 rating in adults 18-49. This was just a bit stronger than the 0.9 the first round picked up on Wednesday. “The 11th Hour with Brian Williams” on the same network brought up the rear in second place by scoring a 0.5. Then, to round out the top 3, “Double Shot at Love” aired its season finale, recovering to 0.5 after a lengthy spat of 0.4’s.
Elsewhere, “The Real Housewives of New York City” brought in a 0.4 for Bravo, keeping consistent with its previous performance. It also just barely outperformed a “Double Shot at Love” reunion on MTV, which was also at 0.4. History Channel’s “Alone” led the pack of consistent 0.3’s, a group which included Food Network’s “Beat Bobby Flay” and USA’s “Queen of the South.”
“Christina on the Coast” ascended from 0.2 to grab a 0.3, as did History’s “Mountain Men.” Down in the 0.2’s, on the other hand, “The First 48” of A&E was foremost of its kind, leading HGTV’s “Unspouse My House,” Investigation Discovery’s “Forbidden: Dying for Love,” and Lifetime’s “Little Women Atlanta.” Debate analysis made up the majority of the rest of the chart.
