Political Debates Are No Longer Must-See TV

The appetite for watching already famous politicians lob predictable talking points and

insults at each other is severely limited. The anemic viewership numbers for televised political “debates,” regardless of the lineup, may also reflect the unconscionable length of American campaigns that are wearing on both candidates and voters. We should probably rethink these multi-year slogs, but we won’t. In the U.K., an election is called and, six weeks later, the votes are being counted. Much more humane.
