State of Union Ratings

President Barack Obama’s final State of the Union address on Tuesday night drew 17.7 million total viewers across the Big 4 broadcast networks, down 9 percent from last year.

Obama’s previous SOTU went on to amass 31.7 million viewers with cable networks added in, marking a 15-year low for the speech. (Cable numbers famously come in much, much later; check back this evening for an update.)
