McCain's Speech Beats Obama's

We didn't see this one coming! John McCain's speech during last night's Republican National Convention has beaten Obama's speech in the ratings! The Hollywood Reporter says that McCain's speech reached 500,000 more viewers than Barack's did the week prior.

McCain received 38.9 million viewers, while Obama received 38.4. This makes McCain's speech the most watched in convention history, 41% higher than Bush's acceptance speech four years ago.

The Hollywood Reporter says, "McCain was aided by a strong NFL lead-in on NBC, which brought 13.6 million viewers right to the doorstep of the 10 p.m. telecast."

Did you tune in? Do you think McCain delivered?
