The Impeachment Hearings Have Huge Ratings

November 15, 2019

Americans Gather To Watch The First Open Hearing Of The Trump Impeachment Inquiry

No matter which side you're on regarding the impeachment hearings, one thing is true - they're pulling in big ratings.

According to Nielsen, over 13.8 million people tuned in to the first day of hearings on Wednesday, which aired on 10 different networks.  

That's more than the average viewership for Robert Mueller's Congressional testimony earlier this year, but far less than the 20.4 million viewers who tuned in for the Brett Kavanaugh hearings in September of 2018.

Fox News was the most-watched network during Wednesday's hearing with an average of 2.9 million viewers, followed by MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and CNN.
