SOTU Ratings Suck

Yahoo News carries a Reuters report of the viewership for President Biden’s so-called SOTU speech.

President Joe Biden's first address to Congress on Wednesday night attracted an estimated 26.9 million viewers across 16 U.S. television networks, according to Nielsen ratings data released on Thursday.

Biden's audience slumped nearly 44% below the TV viewership for Republican President Donald Trump's first address to a joint session of Congress in 2017. Trump's remarks pulled in 47.7 million TV viewers on 11 networks.

Even people who voted for Biden don’t like watching him try to speak. It’s a painful reminder we have an empty suit in the Oval Office.
