http://www.politico.com/story/2015/10/cnn-democratic-debate-ratings-expectations-214664>The Republican and >Democratic fields are like night and day, and no event will make that more apparent than Tuesday’s first Democratic debate in Las Vegas, hosted by CNN and Facebook.
>With only five candidates, just two of whom are registering above single digits in the polls, very few people expect that the ratings or impact on the race will be as dramatic as what the race saw from Cleveland and Simi Valley on the Republican side.
>A ratings success for CNN will look nothing like the 23 million viewers the network saw at the second GOP debate, or the 24 million viewers from the first GOP debate hosted by Fox News. Another element to contend with: Baseball. The New York Mets will play the Los Angeles Dodgers and the St. Louis Cardinals will play the Chicago Cubs in playoff games. The first two GOP debates did not have major sports to compete with.
>And, while there’s a good chance the three lesser-known candidates — Martin O’Malley, Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee — may engage in some antics to get more face time, Tyndall said he’s not expecting it to draw in any new viewers.
>CNN is employing some tactics to help boost ratings. Singer Sheryl Crow will perform the national anthem. The network has also left the door open for Vice President Joe Biden to be on stage, even if he chooses to declare the same day (CNN hosts have been tweeting photos of the extra lectern for Biden — just in case.) The moderator will be Anderson Cooper in place of political junkie Jake Tapper, who was brought into the second GOP debate to help control and direct the three-hour, 11-person marathon.
>Anchor Don Lemon, who draws good ratings on his “CNN Tonight” show and is known for his unpredictability, will be asking questions along with CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash and CNN Español anchor Juan Carlos Lopez. So you gonnna watch /pol/?
