Joe Biden Got Highest DNC Ratings

No, really, guys.


More people watched Vice President Joe Biden—yes, Biden—than any other speaker at both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions, according to the final Nielsen ratings released today.

14.7 percent of viewers, or roughly 43.6 million people, tuned in for Biden's speech. That's more than the 13.7 percent who watched President Barack Obama's speech that same night and more than the 12.5 percent who watched Mitt Romney's speech a week earlier, according to Nielsen.
