By the Numbers: Barack and Baseball

An estimated 33.6 million viewers watched Barack Obama's campaign ad last night (official title - American Stories, American Solutions) on the various channels that it aired. If you missed out on your 6 or so opportunities to see it (and want to), you can check it out on YouTube.

Pushing Daisies - airing against Obama - grabbed 6.6 million viewers - which is actually around a million more than what it's been averaging thus far this season. In terms of ABC's later airings, Private Practice had 7.7 million viewers and Dirty Sexy Money only 6.1.

And how about that baseball? The final game of the World Series (Go Phillies!) on FOX averaged 19.8 million viewers overall.

So...did you miss Knight Rider and Gary Unmarried terribly last night? Did you tune into Barack?

Also of note: Barack's appearance on The Daily Show later last night drew that program its largest audience ever - 3.6 million viewers. Watch this appearance here.
