The network TV audience for the final night of the Republican National Convention was the highest-rated of the week, but nonetheless failed to match the fourth and final night of the Democratic National Convention by 3.3%.
The four-night average audience for the RNC (19.4 million viewers) was 10.2% lower than the four-night DNC average (21.6 million).
The fourth night of the RNC, which featured the President's nomination acceptance speech, was viewed by 23.8 million people, vs. 24.6 million who viewed the final night of the DNC, which featured Joe Biden's acceptance speech.
The RNC's fourth night was down 26% from the fourth RNC night in 2016, which was viewed by 32.2 million people.
Overall, all four nights of both parties conventions failed to deliver 2016 TV audience levels, most likely because more people were viewing online.
