63.2 million people watch second McCain/Obama debate, most since 1992
Nielsen just released the ratings for the second McCain/Obama debate. The key highlights:
63.2 million people watched the debate, up almost 11 million viewers from the first Presidential debate last Friday (which was seen by 52.4 million people.)
This is almost 17 million more viewers than the second presidential debate in 2004 (which was seen by 46.7 million).
This ranks as the 10th most-viewed Presidential debate and is the highest since 1992.
Unlike the first McCain/Obama debate, white viewers watched at a higher rating (23.5) than African Americans (21.3).
