Yikes: State of the Union Had The Lowest Ratings in 15 Years

President Obama's final State of the Union address drew the lowest television ratings since Bill Clinton's final address in 2000. The speech garnered an average of 31.3 million viewers, nearly half of the 52.3 million who tuned in for the president's first State of the Union address.


An average of 31.3 million viewers watched as the president spoke for an hour about optimism, change, and the future of the country Tuesday night, according to Nielsen data.

This does not include those who watched via streaming or online

The speech's viewership, which was a total average of the 13 networks that aired the event, was drastically down from the president's inaugural State of the Union which brought in an average of 52.3 million in 2009.

It also trailed the final State of the Union of George W. Bush, which was watched by 37.5 million viewers in 2008 and was the lowest since Bill Clinton's finale in 2000, a State of the Union that was watched by 31.4 million viewers.

Has Obama fatigue finally set in?
