Wednesday night’s Democrat presidential candidate debate drew the lowest television rating of any of the party’s 2020 election-cycle debates thus far.
The MSNBC-Washington Post Democrat debate attracted 6.51 million total viewers on MSNBC from 9 p.m. to 11:20 p.m. ET, according to preliminary Nielsen data published by TVNewser – breaking the previous record low set by last month’s Democrat debate:
“The last two debates have been the lowest-rated of the 2020 Democratic primary cycle, capped off by yesterday’s debate, which was the lowest-rated one so far.
“The most recent debate was hosted by CNN (Oct. 15), and had been the least-watched of the 2020 cycle. That debate delivered 8.55 million total TV viewers and 2.43 million adults 25-54 from 8 – 11 p.m. ET.”
The next Democrat debate is scheduled for December 19, 2019. It will be aired by both CNN and PBS.
