Ratings: Premiere of NBC’s ‘The Weakest Link’ Reboot Is Tuesday’s Strongest Entertainment Show

You may have heard there was a presidential debate

There is no debating how well NBC’s “The Weakest Link” reboot was received on Tuesday. Still the Jane Lynch-hosted revival couldn’t hold a candle to ratings for the first Trump-Biden debate, which was hosted by Fox News Channel but simulcast across many networks.

Due to the nature of live television, the below numbers for the presidential debate — which aired from 9 p.m. ET to 11 p.m. ET (or 6 p.m. PT to 8 p.m. PT) — are not adjusted for time-zone differences and thus should be considered subject to significant adjustment. Final Nielsen ratings for the debate, as well as Tuesday’s data for the cable news networks, will be available later on Wednesday.
