We like our political TV in these parts

Nashvillians, be proud: we're doing our democratic duty by plopping down in front of the TV for the debates (and apparently, we were 30 percent more interested this time around). From our friends at NewsChannel5 via e-mail:

"The combined ratings for latest night’s Vice Presidential debate in Nashville scored a local rating of a 53.0. That is equivalent to 537,747 local homes.

The combined ratings for the first Presidential debate on September 26th was a 40.6, equating to 412,293 local homes.

The combined rating was achieved by taking the combined ratings of 8 sources (WTVF, WSMV, WKRN, WZTV, PBS, Fox News, CNN and MSNBC."

Remember, we had the fifth-highest percentage of viewers for the first presidential debate (at least in the prelim ratings). Now we just need to beat Memphis.
