LOS ANGELES, (Reuters) – More than 33,000,000 people watched the Tuesday evening State of the Union address by President Biden on U.S. TV. This is an increase over his speech in 2021 to Congress. CNN reported that this was based upon preliminary Nielsen ratings data.

CNN stated that the figure comprises viewers on nine English-language cable and broadcast networks. It will increase once Spanish-language viewership is added. Other Nielsen numbers were to be announced later Wednesday.

Biden delivered his first speech to Congress on April 20, 2021. It attracted 26.9 millions viewers from 16 U.S. TV networks.

The Democrat attacked Russian President Vladimir Putin’s incursion in Ukraine during Tuesday’s speech and detailed his domestic agenda.

Biden’s attendance was below that of former President Trump, who attracted nearly 46 million.

Live event television viewers are declining sharply, as more people watch on-demand streaming videos.
