Nielsen says older people are watching. And guess who's pulled the biggest audience so far? Hillary Clinton.
According to the ratings service's blog:
Bill Clinton and Senator Joe Biden drew more viewers (24 million) than Michelle Obama (22.3 million) – but fewer than Hillary Clinton (26 million).
Older viewers (age 55+) continued to dominate the TV audience Wednesday night, with 18.1% of all Americans in that age group — 12.5 million people — tuning in to the convention coverage.
The third night of coverage drew 12.2 percent of all African-American viewers, down slightly from the night before.
