If you were uninterested in seeing Mitt Romney accept the GOP nomination at the Republican National Convention in Tampa Thursday night, you’re were not alone.
Compared to the 2008 RNC Convention and with the exception of Fox News, all the TV networks saw their audience numbers shrink dramatically.
NBC’s rating were down 56%, ABC was down 26%, CBS was down 30%, CNN was down 52% and MSNBC was down 25%. Even conservative Fox was off 2%.
Even the promise of a “mystery” speaker who turned out to be doddering, 82-year old Clint Eastwood, failed to deliver an audience for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
