Who says nobody cares about the race for mayor? The Nielsen ratings are in, and this week's debate on Channel 4 was No. 2 in the time slot, drawing more viewers than any program on ABC or Fox that whole night. An estimated 79,000 households tuned in.
"They say people are not interested in politics on TV. WSMV has proved that wrong. If you provide good information and make it interesting, people will watch," Channel 4 said in a news release.
Imagine how many people would have watched if the candidates ever had anything interesting to say.
