The Trump era drew many eyeballs around a slew of high-drama political hearings, but the Jan. 6 hearing in June 2022 has nearly topped them all.


The Jan. 6 committee tried hard to grab America's fleeting attention by holding the hearing in primetime and by enlisting a former network news exec in the production.


Major Trump-era hearings also drew high engagement compared to other national TV events. The final games of the 2021 World Series and the NBA finals drew 11.7 million and 9.91 million viewers, respectively, while the Brett Kavanaugh and James Comey hearings drew around 20 million viewers each.
