Obama's Afghan Speech Hit Viewership Low

Friday, 24 Jun 2011 12:47 PM

President Barack Obama’s speech announcing the Afghanistan Barack Obama, Afghanistantroop drawdown attracted the smallest audience for a major address since he took office. The Wednesday night speech drew 25.4 million viewers for a 16.4 household rating, The Cutline reported, citing Nielson figures.

Obama’s December 2009 speech on Afghanistan drew over 40 million viewers, his August 2010 speech on Iraq drew 29.2 million and his June 2010 speech on the Gulf Coast oil spill 32.1 million. However, few compare to Obama’s May speech announcing the death of Osama bin Laded, watched by 56.5 million, according to the Cutline.
