On Chicago TV, Bears beat Detroit but tie the debaters

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

While the rest of the country was riveted by bayonets and horses Monday night, Chicago TV viewers took a keener interest in Bears and Lions. Data from Nielsen reveals about 1.69 million viewers in the Chicago area watched Jay Cutler and his team defeat Detroit on ESPN and WCIU-Channel 26, about the same as the 1.71 million tuning in to one of the many channels carrying the final Barack Obama-Mitt Romney debate. Contrast that with national picture, where almost six times the viewers watched the debate (59.2 million) vs. "Monday Night Football" (10.7 million). For more, see the Chicago Tribune.
