Fox/Google Debate Draws Highest Audience So Far

The Fox News/Google debate on Thursday drew 6.1 million viewers, topping all five other matchups of GOP contenders so far this year, according to Nielsen.

NBC and Politico's debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Sept. 7 posted 5.4 million viewers, the largest audience up to that point.

During the last cycle, there was speculation that viewers would suffer debate "fatigue," given the sheer number of events, but that never really happened, and it is proving to be a similar case this time around. Moreover, the audiences are proving to be plum promotional platforms for cable news networks, especially as they promote their political coverage going in to 2012.
