Not only did millions of Americans not bother voting on election day, they didn't tune in to see who won or lost. Preliminary ratings on Wednesday showed a sharp drop in viewership for election-night coverage on the major television networks compared to 1992. It was consistent with an election campaign that repeatedly turned off viewers. ABC, CBS and NBC scored a combined 28.7 rating and 42 share for their election coverage from 7 to 11 p.m. Tuesday night.
