Saturday Final Nationals: ABC a Dominant Force with Third Democratic Presidential Debate

ABC led this Saturday night among all TV networks in total viewers (8.03 million) and topped the Big 4 in all key measures — including adults 18-34 over UFC (Women 18-34: 0.6/3; Men 18-34: 1.1/6; Women 18-49: 0.8/3; Men 18-49: 1.4/6) coverage on Fox — with the third Democratic Presidential Debate (Women 18-34: 0.8/4; Men 18-34: 1.2/6; Women 18-49: 1.2/5; Men 18-49: 1.4/6) from New Hampshire. While it was the least-watched presidential candidate debate this year (eight, to-date), not one of them dipped below 8 million viewers, far outpacing debates’ viewership at this time in past presidential election seasons.

NFL Network bested in young demographics (adults 18-49, 18-34, 25-54) with N.Y. Jets at Dallas Cowboys (Women 18-34: 1.49; Men 18-34: 2.81; Women 18-49: 1.56; Men 18-49: 3.30).
