    U.S. TV ratings for Clinton speech lower than Trump's

    Hillary Clinton's history-making speech at the Democratic National Convention attracted a smaller U.S. television audience than rival Donald Trump's address a week earlier, according to Nielsen ratings data released on Friday. An estimated 29.8 million people watched Thursday night on 10 broadcast and cable networks when Clinton became the first woman to accept a major U.S. party's nomination for president, Nielsen said. Trump's July 21 address at the Republican National Convention drew 32.2 million viewers, according to Nielsen.
