Americans were more interested in watching Donald Trump than the debate between Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis.
Donald Trump’s Fox News Town Hall averaged 4.3 million viewers.
The debate between Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis brought in 2.5 million.
The Hill reported:
A town hall from Iowa featuring former President Trump that aired on Fox News outpaced the fifth Republican presidential primary debate in the ratings on Wednesday evening.
Fox’s town hall with Trump averaged 4.3 million viewers from 9-10 p.m., according to early data from Nielsen Media Research, while the CNN debate featuring Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley averaged 2.5 million during the same hour.
The 2.5 million figure is more than double the viewers CNN typically pulls in during any hour in prime time on a weeknight, but it is just more than 60 percent of the 4 million who watched the fourth debate on cable news competitor NewsNation last month.
The first two Republican debates, which aired on Fox News and Fox Business, netted 12.8 million and 9 million, respectively, with the third debate earning 7 million viewers who watched on NBC.
