No one is watching these Jan 6 Committee Hearings —mainly because they are so mind-numbingly boring. It’s gotten so bad that NBC decided to stop airing Thursday’s hearing in favor of the U.S. Open Golf Tournament.
“We’re going to have to end our coverage of this January 6 hearing on the NBC Network, my colleagues and I will continue our coverage on the hearings on our streaming platform,” NBC’s Lester Holt said. “For everyone else, U.S. Open golf begins momentarily.”
With Holt put the hearing out of its misery below:

Breitbart News grabbed some solid reactions off of Twitter:
Civil rights lawyer Harmeet Dhillon joked about NBC cutting to golf instead, “My God, J6 hearing is THAT boring? I mean, I would rather untangle a skein of lace mohair yarn than watch golf on TV. Or maybe weed the driveway.”

Republican strategist Alex Bruesewitz tweeted, “So dramatic yet so boring.”
This old fool is barely looking up from his piece of paper.
All opinions. No facts. Just anti-Trump, blah blah blah.

According to The New York Post, “The second public hearing of the House select committee investigating last year’s Capitol riot drew around 10 million total viewers Monday, less than half the audience that watched the committee’s primetime opening presentation last week.”
Sounds like it’s only getting worse.
