That’s on par with the Day 1 of Trump’s first impeachment trial last year, which drew a total of 11 million viewers. But those figures were across six networks: ABC, CBS. NBC, CNN, Fox News and MSNBC.
The latest Nielsen figures, released by CNN, do yet include NBC. They likely will exceed the 11 million who watched on the first day of the impeachment trial on January 22, 2020.
MSNBC topped the networks with 2.87 million viewers, followed by CNN (2.66 million), Fox News (1.95 million), ABC (1.8 million) and CBS (1.74 million).
In the 25-54 news demo, CNN topped with 594,000, followed by MSNBC’s 482,000, ABC’s 365,000, CBS’ 328,000 and Fox News’ 255,000.
