On Mediaite, columnist Joe Concha polled prominent media writers, asking for their ratings prediction for CNN’s debate, that airs tonight at 8pm on.
Lloyd Grove of the Daily Beast offered up an interesting response to Concha’s ratings question.
He said, “If Don Lemon were the moderator, I’d predict 30 million—at least for the first half hour. That not being the case, I’m gonna say 23 million.”
It appears Grove thinks that people would tune in to see what foolish antics Lemon would be up to, (maybe a “n-word” sign as a debate prop?). Of course, Jake Tapper (a very capable political reporter) will be handling the debate moderation.
