'Skyscraper Live,' Nik Wallenda's Chicago Walk, Falls Short of Last Feat

By    |   Tuesday, 04 Nov 2014 10:16 AM

"Skyscraper Live," Nik Wallenda's blindfolded wire walk television event, didn't exactly soar in the ratings like the daredevil's last feat.

The walk between two Chicago skyscrapers boosted Discovery Channel's audience on Sunday, but the Nielsen ratings company says viewer interest fell far short of Wallenda's "Skywire" stunt over the Grand Canyon last year, according to The Associated Press.

His first walk between skyscrapers was from 8:35 to 8:42 p.m. EST and attracted 5.8 million viewers. His blindfolded walk from 9:01 to 9:03 p.m. EST delivered 6.7 million viewers. Those events and the 13-minute break in between were seen by an average of 5.8 million viewers.

By contrast, 13 million people watched his Grand Canyon walk in June 2013. An average of nearly 10.7 million watched the 23-minute walk and stayed through the end of the telecast.
