    Do you have ‘McCallum’ series finale (Ovation at 12PM) ratings, please? Thanks!


  2. Alex

    Such anemic ratings always… Mr. Trump’s Mt. Rushmore Rally was #1, airing fully only on FoxNews and CSPAN.
    Any rating for CNN’s counterprogramming at 9:30-11PM and 11PM-12AM ET?

    2020
    • The Pandemic at a Time of a President Unwilling to Listen to Experts; The Game of Politics at Play During a Crisis. Aired 9:30-11p ET
    • CNN Special: “Bats: The Mystery Behind COVID-19”; What is the Connection Between Bats And COVID-19. Aired 11p-12a ET
    Thank you…..
