People just do not care.
I blogged in November about the low ratings of the impeachment inquiry hearings. I mentioned how it relates to Trump Derangement Syndrome fatigue.
The actual impeachment trial has lower ratings and each day loses more viewers.
20.5M watched the Kavanaugh hearings
19.5M watched Comey testify before the Sen. Intel Cmte
16M watched Michael Cohen testify Oversight Cmte
13.1M watched Day 1 of the House impeachment hearings
11M watched Day 1 of the Senate trial on Tuesdayhttps://t.co/x8B9RwIePU

About 8.9 million TV viewers watched the U.S. Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump on Wednesday, the first day Democrats laid out their case against the president, marking a significant drop from the roughly 11 million viewers who watched on Tuesday, according to Nielsen ratings data.
The audience includes viewership from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm EST on Walt Disney Co’s ABC, AT&T Inc’s CNN, ViacomCBS’s CBS, Comcast Corp’s NBC and MSNBC, and Fox Corp’s Fox News. The trial continued until 9:43 p.m. EST that night.
Tuesday had higher ratings even though that only consisted of procedural events. The supposed juicy stuff began on Wednesday.
The data does not include those (like me) who watch the trial online. (I am staying with my best friend this week. I cannot subject her to this stuff! I love her too much!)DONATE
