  1. Thanks for posting the numbers for the inauguration. No surprises that the ABC won the ratings. And its not often we get to see the ratings for the wee hours of the morning (plus many encores / “repeats” on ABC News either), so thanks for it again.

  2. I watched it live and flicked around to see how all the channels were doing it. I ended up on Channel 10 because they just had a direct feed from CBS and had none of the annoying commentary from here re hashing and going over the same things and just talking for the sake of it. It’s OK to let the pictures speak for themselves folks haha

    1. I watched it on cnn via fetch which had all day coverage from when trump left no ad interruptions stopped talking when the intros took place I thought it was one of the best to watch.

      Probably people would prove me wrong because I watched cnn I’ve only had fetch for 2 weeks and still working out which u.s. news channel to watch at the moment. If I hadn’t had it I would’ve watched it on abc or seven I can’t stand Karl why watch him. At least sunrise always makes people feel good in the mornings
