CNN’s Democratic debate ratings revised upwards

Last night, Nielsen revised the ratings for CNN’s Democratic debate — upping it from 15.3 million viewers to 15.8 million viewers, as noted by Deadline.

With 15.8 million viewers, that makes CNN’s debate the sixth-biggest nonsports cable telecast in history.

CNN anchor Ashleigh Banfield bragged on-air yesterday that her network’s debate drew “a higher number than the season premiere of The Walking Dead.”

The previous record for the Democratic debate was 10.7 million, set in 2008 on ABC when Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama squared off.
