Trump-Clinton 2 Draws 60 Million-Plus Viewers But Trails Far Behind First Debate
Trump-Clinton 2 was no Trump-Clinton 1.
The second presidential debate has netted 61.2 million viewers per TheWrap’s current count, far shy of the first one, which scored 84 million. This time around, NBC sat the simulcast out, instead airing its “Sunday Night Football.” The overall drop is currently hovering around a 27 percent decline.
Sunday’s debate was moderated by Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz. NBC’s Lester Holt handled the first one.
