CNN’s presentation of the California Democratic Debate between Senator’s Obama and Clinton drew a massive audience of 8.32 million viewers. Obliterating the prior cable news record for a debate (4.91 million, accomplished just last week, also by CNN).
The debate improved upon the networks performance from the Republican Debate by a whopping 108%, and is the second most-watched debate this cycle (ABC got 9.36 million from a Jan. 5 Democratic debate).
Truly astonishing numbers.
