    Although the number of viewers watching the presidential inauguration coverage of Barack Obama was impressive, they fall short of those who saw Ronald Reagan take the oath of office for his first term in 1981.

    According to Nielsen Media Research, 37.8 million television viewers tuned in Tuesday to watch the swearing-in ceremony, which was the largest inaugural audience in 28 years. Reagan's first inauguration in 1981 drew a whopping 41.8 million.

    I've never watched one, myself. They're all crooks.

    These were the television viewers, it doesn't include those who watched over the Internet which didn't exist when Reagan took office. Gore hadn't invented it yet... :laugh: :thumbsup:

    So many watched over the Internet that it brought it to its knees. Many sites went down and other froze under the pressure.
