Bin Laden Killed: 56.5 Million Watch Obama Address

By Alex Weprin 

A total of 56.5 million people watched President Obama announce that Osama Bin Laden had been killed Sunday night, Nielsen says.

That makes it the most watched address of Obama’s Presidency, and the highest-rated since the start of the Iraq war in 2003.

As Brian Stelter reports in the NY Times, the only address Obama has delivered that has been seen by more people was the night he was elected President.
