President Obama’s press conference averaged 36.94 million across the four major broadcast networks, with ABC grabbing the most overall viewers with 11.49 million. But CBS won the night in terms of overall viewers and viewers 18-49 years old, with ABC capturing the 18-34 year old demo.
Other than Obama, CBS” Two and a Half Men was the night’s most-watched program with 14.88 million. Meanwhile the success of The Big Bang Theory in the 9:30p spot can’t spell good news for Worst Week. Unlike Worst Week, TBBT not only retained a good chunk of the overall viewers, it retained almost all of the 18-49 year old viewers and had more 18-34 viewers than Two and a Half Men.
We could talk about Heroes and 24, but, really we should probably talk about The Bachelor since it is outperforming both of those shows across the board.
Please keep in mind that all the numbers are preliminary and especially with the Obama press conference it’s very likely to change since the numbers have not been time zone adjusted.
