Fox Business Network Reached 13.5 Million for GOP Debate

NEW YORK (AP) — An estimated 13.5 million people watched the fourth Republican presidential debate of the season, making it the most-watched program in Fox Business Network’s history..

Focused primarily on economic issues, it was least-watched of the GOP debates, behind the 14 million who watched the third debate on CNBC. Before Tuesday’s debate, Fox Business Network has never before reached as many as 1 million viewers for an event.

The debate was a more sedate affair than the first three, after Republicans complained about questioning during the CNBC debate.
