Obama's Infomercial Gets 26.4 Million Viewers

MSNBC: LOS ANGELES - Barack Obama's campaign "infomercial" drew 26.4 million viewers to three major networks, proving modestly more popular than typical prime-time programming, preliminary figures showed Thursday.

The Democratic presidential candidate's 30-minute message Wednesday night garnered 2.1 million more viewers on CBS, NBC and Fox combined than those three networks drew in the same half-hour last Wednesday, according to Nielsen Media Research.
