Record Numbers for Debate

Political junkies may be suffering from debate fatigue — but not the public at large.

More than 4 million people watched the Thursday night debate, which CNN said was the highest rated primary debate in history.

It still had the build up of a boxing match, but CNN’s Jon Klein told TV Newser: “I think the numbers prove what works and what doesn’t. Depth, substance and real news. That’s what viewers expect and that’s
what we’re delivering.”
