LOS ANGELES, Aug 28 (Reuters) - Some 21.6 million Americans watched U.S. President Donald Trump on television as he gave his keynote speech on the final night of the Republican National Convention, CNN business reporter Brian Stelter said on Friday, citing preliminary ratings data.
The early estimates, which are expected to rise, were taken across nine television networks and do not include online viewers. The TV audience was lower than the 24.6 million-strong audience that watched Democratic challenger Joe Biden give his nomination acceptance speech a week ago at the Democratic National Convention, according to official Nielsen data.
