If you turned on CNN Monday night, you would be forgiven if you thought you were watching the political version of a 1950s television spectacular.
Night of a thousand Democrats! A song and dance routine from Kamala Harris defending her anti-truancy policies as California attorney general! A dramatic reading from Bernie Sanders about why the Boston Marathon bomber should be able to vote!
Thrills - Chills - Trump-bashing - Lots - Lots
Thrills! Chills! Trump-bashing! Taxes! Lots and lots of taxes! Dear God, the taxes!
No less than five candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination — which makes up at least one-tenth of the current field by my hyperbolic calculation — appeared on the five-hour very special episode of CNN’s town halls, direct from Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire.
Night - CNN
Well, if this is major, I would hate to look at what a minor night for CNN looks like.
According to The Daily Caller, both Fox and MSNBC beat CNN’s town halls in average viewership in prime time, and both by fairly wide margins.
Viewership - Town - Halls - Age - Demographic
“The average viewership for each of their town halls was 1,201,000 with 371,000 in the 25-54 key age demographic, according to early Nielsen Media Research. MSNBC’s nightly programming of Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell and Brian Williams had over half a million more, with 1,810,000 viewers, but CNN beat them in the key demo,” The Daily Caller reported.
However, “Fox News’ coverage of Martha MacCallum, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Shannon Bream finished the night with over a million more viewers than the town halls, averaging 2,262,000 viewers with 380,000 in the demo.”
