Obama TV Ratings

Liberal media blames abysmal TV inaugurati on ratings on previous administra tion

President Obama's inauguration TV ratings  dropped by almost 50% from 2009.

 Slightly more than 20 million Americans tuned in to watch President Barack Obama inaugurated for his second term - a little more than half the audience that watched in 2009.

These figures mirrored the sizes of the crowds that came to Washington to watch the ceremony in person.

 The rating service Nielsen said Wednesday that the average audience watching from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. was 20.6 million this year, compared to 37.8 million in 2009.

Nielsen said 18 networks covered the inaugural ceremonies for most of that time, though the specific hours varied by network.

The first black president inauguration only happens once.  This is a rerun.  And could it also be that when I watch a televised political event that could have wide ranging effects on my life, I don't want to hear the commentators talking about the First Lady's dress and haircut?
