Remember when Donald Trump was going to give the country a star-studded Republican Convention that would draw huge ratings?
I do. Turns out the 2016 convention couldn’t beat the ratings from 2008 or 2012.
To add insult to injury, the numbers from last night show Trump’s convention couldn’t even get more viewers than the Democrats did on the first night of their convention.
26 million people watched the convention last night in the prime time hours between 10:00 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. By comparison, the opening night of the Republican Convention drew 23 million viewers.
This is what happens when you have speakers people actually want to see.
Think about it, the Democrats have already featured big name political leaders like First Lady Michelle Obama, Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren, as well as celebrities like Elizabeth Banks, Sarah Silverman, Eva Longoria, and Demi Lavato.
Republicans on the other hand, gave us……Scott Baio?
