A televised debate without Trump is sort of like Two and a Half Men without Charlie Sheen, but the Dems still did pretty amazing numbers. “In preliminary estimates from Nielsen, Tuesday’s debate on CNN drew a big 15.3 million viewers — the largest-ever crowd for a Democratic debate and the sixth largest non-sports cable audience on record.” (I’m not sure I agree with the classification of a political debate as a “non-sport.”)
