The President of the United States had a very good night at his CNN town hall on Tuesday.
Not only did Joe Biden make it very clear there was a new kind of POTUS in office, but the seasoned politician won the ratings and viewership race in a near landslide.
In his first such appearance since moving into the White House on January 20, Biden’s 9 – 10:15 PM EST stint on the AT&T-owned cable newser snagged 3.5 million viewers and an audience of 880,000 in the news demo of adults 25-54.
That’s a small 6% bump up in total sets of eyeballs from how the then former VP did in his last socially distanced CNN town hall back on September 17. The results of last night’s Anderson Cooper moderated event also easily topped both Fox News Channel’s Hannity and MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show in both total viewers by 24% and 18% respectively.
Focusing on the 25-54 demo, Biden’s town hall at Milwaukee’s Pabst Theater before an audience of approximately 60 voters whooped FNC and the Comcast-owned cabler by 124% and 108% respectively, according to Nielsen data.
All of which delivered a victorious Wednesday to CNN.
Mainly centered on the coronavirus pandemic, the vaccine rollout and getting the crippled economy back on its feet, the town hall itself gave the often loquacious and always emphatic Biden a chance to show his command of facts and policy, as well as connect with those in the Pabst and at home. The town hall was also noticeably for Biden’s dismissal of his predecessor and Donald Trump’s February 13 acquittal at his second impeachment trial
“I’m tired of talking about Donald Trump, I don’t want to talk about him anymore,” said the 46th POTUS of the 45th, who he threw pretty effective shade on in labelling the ex-Celebrity Apprentice host as the “former guy.”
