George Stephanopolous’s interview with former FBI director James Comey was a ratings bonanza for ABC last night.
But the 9.7 mil viewers was less than 60 Minutes and the Country Music awards last night. CBS easily took the night.
The Comey interview had 700,000 fewer viewers than “60 Minutes” had had at 7pm. Why Comey and his publisher agreed to ABC at 10pm and not “60 Minutes” at 7pm is a head scratcher.
At 10pm on CBS 11.5 million people watched the final hour of the Country Music Awards. Only 9.7 million watched Comey.
