CNN apparently got a ‘record-breaking’ viewership for the Democratic debate, with preliminary information suggesting 11 million households tuned in — or less than half that of the second GOP debate.

Yes we have Trump to thank for that.  But it is striking nonetheless to realize that, “The Republican rematch on CNN September 16 averaged more than 23 million viewers, essentially confirming that the GOP debates are the highest-rated new “show” of the fall TV season.”
