According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Tuesday night Town Hall, which featured interviews with Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich, topped cable news ratings for the night.
Between 8 and 11 p.m., CNN averaged 3.263 million viewers and 1.06 million adults 25-54. That easily put it at No. 1 by both measures, and more than doubled the closest demo competition from Fox News Channel — where typical primetime winner Bill O'Reilly was off for the night.
With the GOP debates now over, interest in the town hall was clearly boosted. It marked the most-watched of the current cycle. The fact that Donald Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, was issued a notice to appear and a court date over an assault charge earlier in the day probably didn't hurt.
