The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports:
Thursday night's televised debate between Gov. Scott Walker and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett drew nearly twice as high a rating as its nearest competitor, and almost as high a rating as that of the other three network affiliates combined.
The debate averaged a 12.1 rating on WISN-TV (Channel 12) at 9 p.m.
One rating point is the equivalent of 9,100 television homes.
