An estimated 30 million watched Romney’s speech
LOS ANGELES — Ratings for the final night of the Republican convention, which featured Mitt Romney and Clint Eastwood, aren’t blockbuster.
The Nielsen Co. says an estimated 30.3 million viewers watched Thursday night’s coverage over 11 networks. The event included presidential candidate Romney’s acceptance speech and Eastwood’s faux interview with an absent President Barack Obama.
Four years ago, John McCain’s acceptance speech at the GOP meeting was viewed by more than 40 million over seven networks.
Fox News Channel was by far the most-watched network as it went head-to-head against others in the 10-11 p.m. Eastern hour and throughout the convention in Tampa, Fla.
