NBC Wins Again, Other Nets Rise as Obama Speaks

Aug 29, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Barack Obama’s presidential acceptance speech on Thursday, not surprisingly, brought in the biggest ratings of the Democratic National Convention.
NBC’s coverage of the speech from Invesco Field in Denver landed a 5.0 rating/8 share, according to Nielsen Media Research preliminary overnight household ratings of 55 markets.
That was up just 2% from NBC’s previous high-water mark for Tuesday night’s airing of Hillary Clinton’s speech.
ABC, with its 4.6/7, increased 21% from Tuesday, and CBS, with a 3.3/5, jumped 22%.
Football aired in several markets Thursday night, and some stations joined the convention coverage already in progress once the game was over. This might have influenced some of the numbers.


  1. Wow!, this was such a quality blog post. Theoretically I’d like to write like this as well – spending time and true effort to produce a good article… but what can i say… I keep putting it off and don’t seem to achieve a good deal. alissa

  2. Intense? Lindsay Lohan would not know the 50 % of it. I propose for her an institution described as Palmer Drug Abuse Program. They may well be able to benefit this lady.
