This Week’s Podcast: Elections and Surveys

This week on TV Talk with CHML’s Scott Thompson, we review last night’s U.S. presidential election coverage, including that bizarre hologram effect that beamed Will I. Am aboard the CNN studio. Sometimes change can go too far.
Maybe the hologram trick worked: an estimated 71 million Americans watched last night’s election coverage, with CNN (7,687,000) besting Fox News (5,995,000) and MSNBC (3,651,000). Among non-news networks, ABC (9,108,000) edged NBC (8,234,000) with CBS a distant third (5,507,000).
About ten million less watched Bush/Gore battle it out in 2000; 59.4 million caught Bush/Kerry in 2004.
There’s also more chit chat about that TVTropolis hits from the ’90s sitcom survey, with Friends, Frasier and Seinfeld among the big winners. You can listen in here.
