News Highlights of the January 6th Hearings

From Politico Playbook by Ryan Lizza and Eugene Daniels on the January 6th hearings:

Total viewership of the Jan. 6 committee’s opening hearing was modest compared to other primetime political events, but the committee’s work continued to drive the majority of political coverage into the weekend.

— The ratings: “More than 20 million TV viewers tuned in to Thursday’s prime-time presentation about the January 6 attack,” per CNN’s Brian Stelter. While “respectable,” Stelter notes Biden’s March State of the Union address “averaged 38 million viewers across sixteen channels.” (Quick: Can you remember anything from that speech?)
