Nearly 65 million people viewed Tuesday night’s long-anticipated first presidential debate through the “Big Four” broadcast networks (NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox), according to the Nielsen ratings released Wednesday afternoon, Forbes reports. Soon after the viewership numbers were released, many were quick to argue that it was a big drop from years past.
The President said on Twitter Wednesday, “HIGHEST CABLE TELEVISION RATINGS OF ALL TIME. SECOND HIGHEST OVERALL TELEVISION RATINGS OF ALL TIME. Some day these Fake Media Companies are going to miss me, very badly!!!”
This election’s only vice-presidential debate—between Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris—is scheduled for next Wednesday (Oct. 7) in Salt Lake City, Utah, and it will air from 9 to 10:30 pm (Eastern Standard Time). The second presidential debate will happen Wednesday, October 17 in Miami between 9 and 10:30 pm (Eastern Standard Time).

Carter on Hannity: House Judiciary Committee will subpoena DOJ over Biden classified docs
Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity to discuss the classified documents being found in multiple places of both work and residence of Joe Biden from his time in the Obama administration. Carter states “One of the big questions from the House Judiciary Committee is how did President Joe Biden’s legal team stumble upon the classified documents that were found at Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center.”
“Why hasn’t the FBI been vocal and transparent about the fact that they searched that office and found the classified documents on November 2nd” Carter questions. Additionally, they have not yet “disclosed to the House Committees whether or not they had searched the house in Delaware or Rehoboth Beach to the full extent,” says Carter who noted the committees wanted the information by January 27th.
Carter spoke to sources who told her they will be serving subpoenas to “personnel from the Department of Justice because Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to answer specific questions they sent to him on January 13th.”
