Found info on Nielsen ratings for the NatGeo doc on water and thought it was interesting. 6pm pst showing was ranked 102 out of all cable programs that night with approximately 534,000 viewers. Its 18-49 demographic rating was 0.12. Compare this to the #1 program that night, Rachel Maddow's reveal of Trump’s taxes had over 4.1 million viewers and a 1.00 18-49 rating. The Real Housewives of Bev Hills had over 1.6 million viewers and 0.62 18-49 rating as more comparison. The second viewing at 7:30 didn't even make the top 150 shows.
Of those who did watch I wonder how many were pissed off ag people who thought it was unfair and how many were misguided environmentalists who thought it was great.
