AMERICA TUNES OUT: Primetime Joe a Ratings Dud, 60 Minutes Audience Less Than Trump, Obama

We’ll always have the gaffes.

The ratings are in on President Biden’s 60 Minutes spotlight —Joe performed worse in prime time than both of his predecessors, former Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama.

According to data from the Nielsen company, Biden drew less than 10 million viewers.

From The Washington Times:

That was 40% of the 24.5 million viewers who turned in to “60 Minutes” to watch President Obama’s first post-election interview in November 2008. It was the show’s highest ratings in more than a decade.

Mr. Obama’s follow-up appearance in December 2019, after he left office, drew 16.2 million, according to Nielsen data.

President Trump attracted 16.8 million total views when sat down for a contentious interview with “60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl in October 2020.

Maybe it’s a good thing too many people didn’t tune in —Joe made a number of gaffes, including declaring the pandemic is over and the U.S. Military would defend Taiwan in the event of Chinese aggression (not official policy).

The current pandemic emergency status is still extended through Oct. 13.

“He is not in charge,” tweeted The Spectator contributing editor Stephen Miller, sharing the CNN headline “White House says Covid-19 policy unchanged despite Biden’s comments that the ‘pandemic is over.’”
