NEW YORK (AP) — It promised big revelations — and delivered. And last week’s final summer session of the House Jan. 6 committee hearings also delivered big ratings. Nielsen reports Thursday night’s hearing had an estimated audience of 17.7 million viewers. That’s second only to the 20 million who saw the first panel hearing on June 9. Both it and the summer finale were on at primetime. Ten networks aired the final hearing live, down from the 11 that showed the first session. The conservative network Newsmax dropped out this time. Public hearings are to resume in September.
