We had a feeling this would happen. Barack Obama's speech last night was awesome in the ratings. 38.4 million tuned into watch the Democratic National Convention.
It topped last year's Oscars, which reached 32 million, every night of this year's Olympics which reached 34.9, and it even topped the Idol finale, which reached 31.7 million.
Now let's hope that theory about more people voting for the next Idol than the next President is squashed this year too! Cuz these numbers look good!
