Biden’s town hall, which was hosted by ABC, attracted more than 14 million viewers, according to estimates from Nielsen released by ABC News.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden attracted more viewers than President Donald Trump to their heavily anticipated dueling town halls Thursday.

Biden’s town hall, which was hosted by ABC, attracted more than 14 million viewers, according to estimates from Nielsen released by ABC News. Trump’s town hall, which was shown on NBC News, MSNBC and CNBC, garnered about 13.5 million viewers. On NBC News alone, about 11 million people tuned into Trump’s town hall, Variety reported.

Biden scheduled his event after Trump withdrew from the second presidential debate scheduled for that night. The Commission on Presidential Debates had arranged for the second debate to be virtual after Trump tested positive for coronavirus. But Trump refused to face off via a videolink.
