69,989,000 Viewers -- Palin-Biden the Most-Watched VP Debate Ever!



From the Live Feed: Last night's event was seen by nearly 70 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research.

That's the most-viewed debate -- presidential or vp -- since the second round between Bill Clinton, Ross Perot and George Bush in 1992 (which drew an audience of 69.9 million).

Thursday's event was 33% higher than Friday's top-of-the-ticket debate between John McCain and Barack Obama. It's 61% higher than the 2004 debate between Dick Cheney and John Edwards. And it ranks 23% higher than the former title-holder for the most-watched vp debate -- the 1984 match between George Bush and Geraldine Ferrarro (56.7 million).
No wonder Joe was a litte emotional:


And looking more futzy than usual:
