Nielson has relased them. They're probably a bit of a surprise to a number of people:
  • More than half a million more people watched John McCain’s acceptance speech (38.9 million) than Barak Obama’s the week before (38.4 million).
  • Regarding the gender gap, significantly more men (17.9 million) watched McCain’s speech than Obama’s (16.2 million), while more women watched Obama’s speech (19.9 million) than McCain’s (19.2 million).
  • More than 5 million more white viewers watched the McCain speech (32.2 million) than the Obama speech (27.0 million).
  • Among African Americans, the reverse was true, with 4.5 million more African Americans watching Obama (7.5 million) than McCain (3.1 million)
Here's the link to Nielson - they haven't posted the results there at this time (got it by email). I'm sure it will be up soon.

So much for Obama’s post-racial America.

So just under 20% more whites watched McCain and over 40% more blacks watched Obama.

Obviously, a bit more bias among blacks . . .

Now cable news is alive with the story that Elizabeth Hasselbeck of “The View” “outed” the fact that Michelle Obama came on the show with a negociated list of topics that would not be touched, while Ms. McCain came on with no such list.

“… but this is standard for celebs” they say … but apparently not for political figures.

Some of that additional audience is probably people who know the media will lie about what the Republicans actually said, and wanted to hear it for themselves.
