There were some fireworks, wild claims and question dodging at last night’s debate, but far fewer people saw what happened this time around:
9/12: 14.0 million (on ABC/Univision).
July: Two nights averaged 9.7 million (CNN).
June: Two nights avergd 16.8 million (NBC/MSNBC/Telemndo).

Last night's presidential debate had 8.1 million viewers, which is about half the audience of the first one.
The June debate had about 15 million on the first night and 18 million on the second.
