Lady Gaga’s One World Together at Home scored about 14 million over the three networks last night. On ABC the two hour average was 5 million, just as it was on NBC.

Global Citizen is now touting $127 million raised somehow. It has nothing to do with them. The money is corporate donations made before the show. Global Citizen didn’t make the money, doesn’t donate money to anyone. They are at best a PR company. It’s one of the best cons ever invented.
