Ratings for Biden’s SOTU address are trending in the same direction as Hollywood awards shows – down.
Viewership for the speech was 29% lower than last year’s SOTU address, making it one of the least watched State of the Union addresses in the last 30 years.
Is anyone surprised that people don’t want to hear Biden’s lies and vulgar rants?
The Hollywood Reporter has the details:

TV Ratings: State of the Union audience drops
The on-air audience for the State of the Union address was down significantly from a year ago.
President Joe Biden’s second State of the Union averaged 24.17 million viewers across the four major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC) and the three largest cable news channels (CNN, Fox News and MSNBC). That’s down about 29 percent from the 33.83 million who watched the State of the Union at those seven outlets in 2022.
The 2022 State of the Union, the first official of Biden’s term, drew 38.2 million viewers across 16 outlets. Final figures for each Nielsen-rated channel carrying Tuesday’s address will be available later in the day, but the total on-air viewers is likely to fall short of 30 million, making it one of the least-watched State of the Union addresses (or presidents to Congress for incoming executives of the past 30 years). the speech
Fox News had the most viewers for the talk show with just under 4.7 million viewers, beating out ABC’s 4.41 million for the top spot. NBC was third with 3.78 million viewers, followed by CBS (3.64 million), MSNBC (3.57 million), CNN (2.41 million) and Fox Broadcast Network (1.66 million). Spanish-language broadcasters Univision (1.08 million) and Telemundo (836,000) added about 1.9 million total viewers.
You can only lie to the public so many times before they tune you out.

Remember that the next time someone in the liberal media claims it was a great speech.
