For the three television networks, Tuesday was another night of not-so-great ratings for the Democratic convention.
ABC's convention coverage, which ran 60 minutes, drew a rating of 5.8 and was viewed by about 7.4 million people, according to Nielsen Media Services. In contrast, "Coach," which ran right before ABC's convention coverage began, had a 12.6 rating and 19 million viewers.
NBC's convention coverage, which also lasted 60 minutes, had a 4.4 rating and 5.5 million viewers. "Quantum Leap," which led up to the convention on NBC, had a 6.2 rating and 8.8 million viewers.
