TV Ratings: Trump's Congress Address Pulls 43 Million Viewers, Far From Comparable Obama Speech

Post by Guest on Wed Mar 01, 2017 1:09 pm

Up from recent State of the Union addresses, the event is still off a steep 17 percent from 2009.
Fake President Trump made his first big televised appearance from the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday night, addressing a joint session of Congress and blanketing the Big Four and the cable news networks for more than an hour.

The event predictably topped the night's few other telecasts, grossing just more than 43 million viewers on eight networks airing coverage between 9 and 10:15 p.m. ET. On par with early metered market stats, a cumulative 27.8 overnight rating among households, it's still a ways off from President Barack Obama's first joint sessions meeting — or even his first State of the Union. Compared to Obama's first address in 2009, Trump's pull is down by 17 percent. Fox News, which the Trump audience has show itself to be especially fond of, led coverage on cable and broadcast with 10.8 million viewers during the speech — while NBC News topped among the Big Four with 9.1 million viewers.

Never dubbed a State of the Union for a first-year, first-term president, the address to the joint sessions of congress is nevertheless a huge event — often a bigger one than subsequent SOTUs. President Barack Obama averaged 52.4 million viewers (initially a 33.4 overnight rating) across networks when he spoke in 2009, when the country was suffering from a recession. His subsequent addresses never reached that height.

Critic's Notebook: Trump Delivers His Best Impression of a President in First Congressional Address
Speeches of this sort tend to draw the biggest crowd in times of uncertainty, which is why President George W. Bush peaked in early 2003, on the eve of the Iraq War, with 62 million viewers. Like Obama, Bill Clinton peaked with his joint session — pulling 66,900,000 in 1993, an audience he never came close to duplicating even when embroiled in scandal.

Prior to Tuesday, Trump's biggest TV spectacle in office was his Jan. 19 inauguration. The Apprentice producer's tally of not-quite 31 million viewers fell far short of Obama's first inauguration in 2009, but it did rank as the second-most-watched since Ronald Reagan took office. Obama's final State of the Union attracted 31.3 million viewers, the lowest of his presidency. His first State of the Union, in 2010, pulled 48 million viewers.

A lot of people didn't stay up to watch his address... because they were peacefully sleeping with the reassurance and peace of mind, that Trump is at the helm and better days are coming. Wink

For instance, look at this average Trump supporter, below.

Does she look like she has a worry in the world? Of course not! She's one of the many that skipped the address because they could sleep well knowing that we finally have a president that keeps his promises. Smile

Inauguration crowd -- down. TV viewership -- down. Approval rating at this point, according to Gallup -- WAY down. American tourism industry since Trump took office -- cratering.

Those are some mighty fine old people.  Those ladies don't even look that old.  



Do you suppose that Trump supporters are beautiful... and they don't show their age?  I'm starting to come to that conclusion, too.  Those Trump supporters really are remarkable people, aren't they? Laughing

Yes! I definitely think I'm onto something.  
I found a Trump supporter that I know for a fact is over 45, and she doesn't look a day over 30.



Seriously, guys!  The proof is there!  The secret to being beautiful and youthful is to become a Trump supporter!

Trump Girls Break the Internet
A show of support for the candidate becomes a web sensation



The internet has been breaking over the last 24 hours as sexy photos of women have popped up on the web showing support for the GOP presumptive nominee for president. Facebook took up the cause on Monday.

#TrumpGirlsBreakTheInternet seemed to start showing up after The Wall Street Journal released its latest poll showing Hillary Clinton had a 17-point lead over Donald Trump among women.
...
Enter the Trump Babe movement.

Many of the young women sported Trump's "Make America Great Again" hats.

Some focused on their backsides; some used the slogan Trump Rump.

Many also posted shots of themselves in bikinis. Others covered up. Some held guns.

Some posed with their pets.

yeah a twitter movement is PROBABLY paid models Razz Razz Razz
it's called social media for a reason YOU CAN BUY THIS PUBLICITY as easily as an ad on TV and it's cheaper lots of pretty girls are employed to use their twitter profile to promote products.
Like I said NOTICE how poor products use the 'sex sells' mantra because they lack decent product points to advertise.

How do they get aging limp-dicks to waste their money on sports cars? By convincing them the young pretty women are into sports cars.
