The ABC GOP Debate with Donald Trump scored the best ratings of the year so far.
The debate averaged a 9.3 household rating according to Nielson’s markets.
CNN reported:

Bucking a trend of declining debate ratings, ABC’s Saturday night GOP face-off was the highest rated debate so far in 2016, according to overnight Nielsen ratings data.

The debate averaged a 9.3 household rating between 8:15 p.m. and 10:45 p.m. in Nielsen’s so-called metered markets.

The debate on Fox Business Network (a cable channel that is harder to find than ABC) had a 7.4 rating in mid January. The debate on Fox News Channel two weeks later — the one Donald Trump skipped — had an 8.4 rating.

Saturday’s GOP debate also far surpassed MSNBC’s Democratic debate earlier in the week which had a 3.3 household rating, a new low for the debates this season. That means the GOP debate had nearly three times the audience as the Democrat-Socialist debate earlier in the week.
