Why Comey's ABC News interview was a ratings disaster

Amanda HeadRebel Contributor

Millions more Americans watched porn star Stormy Daniels talk about Trump on TV than they did when the ex-FBI Director did the same thing, on ABC News (with long-time Clinton crony George Stephanopoulos.)

About 10 million people tuned in for his interview, which sounds like a lot until you remember that that's only one quarter of one percent of the population.

In fact, more people watched Roseanne.

What does this tell us?

Maybe not what you think...

Amanda Head certainly seems relieved that “Stormy Daniels”, the U.S. porn star who had an affair with Donald Trump, gathered higher ratings on ABC than either the James Comey interview of a re-boot of the sitcom Roseanne.

She seems to think that this reflects well on the U.S. television viewers. And those Russian prostitutes who Trump asked to urinate on the bed, if they get on ABC and garner even higher ratings, will Amanda Head be dancing in the street?

Comey is a slime ball . Anyone with half a brain could add 1 plus 1 to = 2 but not the FBI , Hillary should be in jail with Comey and lying Loretta . Anyone other than Hillary would have been in jail long ago . It wasn’t careless it was blat tan . You can always tell when the CBC bring up a Liberal thorny issue , the comment section is always disabled just like the Liberal monkey with his hand over his mouth .

Ron Joseph, I’m surprised there was an opportunity for that guy to comment (quite funny btw). CBC seems to disable comments on a regular basis.

Sunny Ways reporting is what Trudeau is paying for…and, people actually believe the reports!!!

Jim MCrae— I have exactly the same frustration, CTV News Net even lies about anything Trump, while their Financial Expert Lovic-Reid says everything is great under Trudeau. I have informed her that our Stock Market is the lowest in the world under Trudeau, next to Venezuela. The old girl seems to climax whenever she mentions his name.
Here is what happened when a guy sent in a Trudeau joke to the CBC.

I just got banned for 24 hours from CBC because I said Chevy Chase just bought the rights to Trudeau’s India visit and Randy Quaid was going to play Atwal.

Andrew -The current population of the United States of America is 326,273,581 as of Sunday, April 15, 2018, based on the latest United Nations estimates, the United States population is equivalent to 4.28% of the total world population.

Additionally, you under reported Roseanne’s stats for the reboot. Why do this?

More people watched the Country Music Awards than the interview Lurch/Comey gave the other night.

10 million people is 2.5%, not 0.25%.

It’s nothing special, but not terrible either. 10m viewers is pretty typical for evening network TV, even the cited ratings hit, Roseanne, hit about 13m vs Stormy Daniel’s 22.

I have given up on the mainstream Canadian media- they run with all the fake news about President Trump but completely ignore the dim witted empty suit we have for a Prime Minister
