DNC Day Two Ratings Down From Previous Night

 Last night’s Democratic National Convention coverage averaged 24.7 million viewers across seven networks, according to Nielsen.

The second night of the convention – which featured former President Bill Clinton’s speech -- fell short of the 25.9 million viewer across ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox Business Network, Fox News and MSNBC that tuned into the first night, and below the 25.1 million viewers that tuned into the second day of the 2012 Democratic convention, Nielsen said.

CNN was the most watched network of the night, averaging 5.9 million viewers, followed by NBC’s 5.2 million viewers and MSNBC’s 3.8 million watchers, said Nielsen.
