Univision Democratic Debate Draws 5.9 Million Viewers

The combined total from Univision and a CNN simulcast.

The Univision Democratic debate, hosted in partnership with the Washington Post, drew 5.948 million viewers, according to Nielsen Fast National data. That is the combined total from Univision and a CNN simulcast. It also aired on Fusion, but ratings for that network are not publicly disclosed.

Breaking it down by network, CNN had 3.942 million viewers, with 1.343 million in the A25-54 demo. Univision had 2.006 million viewers with 48 percent, or 966,000, in the demo.

While GOP debates generally average more viewers than the Democratic debates, presumably because of the potential for Trump shenanigans, Trump solo performances aren’t as strong a draw. At the 10 p.m. spot, when Fox News was hosting a town hall with Donald Trump—one of a series of hour-long town halls it did that night with each of the remaining GOP candidates—CNN beat Fox News in total viewers, 3.994 million to 2.618 million.

CNN will be at it again tonight, hosting its fourth GOP debate. It will be moderated by Jake Tapper along with CNN’s Dana Bash, talk radio host Hugh Hewitt and The Washington Times’ Stephen Dinan.
