Alternate Explanations

To everyone’s surprise, Joe Biden was the breakout speech at the Democratic National Convention, scoring the biggest Nielsen viewership in either convention.  Yahoo credits this to Joe Biden’s appeal with the elderly.
However, I have my own take on this, as I watched Biden’s speech and Biden alone: I said, “Oh, that convention’s on tonight, I should see what Obama’s going to say.”  Then I tuned in too early and got Joe Biden.  I said, “I’ll stay through Biden, and watch Obama.”  Then Obama came on, and it was the same damn speech I’d heard five billion times before, and I turned it off.
According to the Nielsens, however, I was there to see Biden.  Go figure.
