This is an interesting little factoid I found on the internet today.
Here are some numbers for last night’s shows on Fox:
American Idol – 24.75 million viewers
Obama – 9.74 million viewers
Fox had the highest number of viewers watch the State Of The Union Address of any network. Pales to Neil Patrick Harris and Joe Jonas being guest judges on American Idol. Seems like Mr. President should ask Simon Fuller how to get better numbers.
