More People Watched McCain Than Barackopolis

It turns out the simple, elegantly presented McCain speech yesterday evening drew more television viewers than did the Cecil B. DeMille-style stadium extravaganza for Obama at the DNC last week. TV Week reported Nielsen's preliminary ratings:

Across all broadcast networks Thursday, Sen. McCain’s speech ended the night with a 4.8 rating/7 share, compared to Sen. Obama’s 4.3/7 average, according to overnight numbers from metered households in 55 U.S. markets measured by Nielsen.
