Democrats aired the first of their J6 hearings on primetime TV last week. For some reason, they thought Americans would watch their political droning over Hell’s Kitchen.
The spectacle, called a “show trial” by Donald Trump, brought in around 19-20 million viewers. That’s fewer than Biden’s “State of the Union address.”
Regardless, they kept airing these hearings. But the numbers were truly pathetic.
From Washington Examiner:
New ratings data show that the second installment of hearings held by the Jan. 6 committee received only half of the views that its initial prime-time slot enjoyed.
According to reports, only 10 million people tuned into the second hearing Monday morning.
Ouch. Only 10 million people watched the second J6 commission hearing on Monday. That’s after only 19 million people watched the prime-time hearing, even though it was aired across 12 networks.
We can safely assume that of those 19 million, most were Democrats. But in a nation of over 300 million, that’s not even a fraction of the population.
And the viewership of a second episode of something is driven largely by the success of the first episode.
Democrats lost 9 million viewers between the first and second hearing. Meaning those people weren’t impressed by what they saw.
If this was a sitcom, it would already have been canceled.
A third hearing was supposed to be held today, but Democrats suddenly postponed it. They claimed it was because of a “technical issue.”
Really? The first time didn’t have any issues. Why suddenly is there an issue now?
Unless Democrats are embarrassed by the low ratings—and the seeming lack of evidence to condemn Trump?
- Only 10 million people watched the second J6 hearing.
- That is down by 9 million from the first primetime hearing.
- Democrats postponed the third hearing due to “technical issues.”
