SUCK IT!!!!

Palin Nabs Highest '08 Broadcast TV Convention Ratings - TVWeek - News


Alaska Gov. Sarah Palinís speech during Wednesday nightís Republican National Convention bested Democratic speeches from Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and, in some cases, Barack Obama in preliminary ratings.

Speaking last night, along with former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Gov. Palin took in a 5.4 rating/8 share on NBC, according to preliminary overnight household data from Nielsen Media Research, measuring 55 markets across the United States.

In terms of this yearís conventions, the preliminary rating for NBCís coverage last night is higher than any other night of the convention on the broadcast networks, including Sen. Obamaís nomination acceptance speech on Aug. 28.

However, the ratings are preliminary and are subject to change.

ABC averaged a 4.0/6, up more than a full ratings point against the DNCís third day, and CBS scored a 3.1/5, beating its previous Wednesday coverage by 29%.

In your title, you probably mean ACCEPTANCE? She ACCEPTED the nomination. She was a journalism major who might not like the misspelling. I only wish she knew more about what it takes to be VP of our country.

Huh?

Barack Obama speech watched by 38.4m Americans | Media | guardian.co.uk

Barack Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention pulled in a bigger US TV audience than the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony, this year's American Idol final and Oscars coverage.

Are you saying that this shows that her speech was better, or that more people listened to her speech? What's the significance of that? Since she's such an unknown, perhaps people do want to see and learn what she's all about.

The NBC data you are telling us to "suck on", is about ratings. Nothing more.

I think the numbers speak for themselves.

More people preferred/enjoyed watching her speak, than Obama.

This was only ratings. People from all sides want to know who the hell this woman is, so they tuned in. After the fact, I really didn't learn anything new about her except that she can give a speech with a TelePromTer. I heard there were problems with it. I guess when it was acting up that's when she decided to talk about Obama.

As much Obama talk as there was, you'd think they knew more than just Republicans were watching. Naturally though, the real issues were ignored, the economy wasn't paid any mind and Bush/Cheney weren't even name-checked.

Just because people watched doesn't mean they will vote for her... I watched and I sure won't vote for her! Suck that!

Curiosity will always get people to stop and look at train wrecks...
