Nielsen: McCain’s speech draws more viewers than Obama’s — while airing on fewer networks

This is very encouraging. The only negative is that apparently the minority networks decided not to carry Sarah Palin's speech, and BET didn't cover the RNC at all.

Just across. BET and TV One apparently decided that with Barry O already pulling 90-95% of the black vote, they needn’t bother turning any precious airtime over to McCain. In fact, all four nights of the Democratic convention aired on both networks. The GOP convention didn’t air at all.

Do note: Palin finished just shy of both candidates in total audience running on only six networks, two fewer than McCain and four fewer than Obama. Telemundo and Univision didn’t bother with night three coverage.
