Click on image above and blow up. This chart shows the ratings of the last State of the Union addresses going back to Clinton. Clinton holds the record with Bush in second and Obama in third. Found chart on Nielsen's blog here.

I personally watched the address on CSPAN but then CSPAN got so clogged with traffic and I don't have the best connection I then headed over to and then headed over to for the Republican responses. Could be the internet is growing in usage.

FoxNews won hands down on the ratings amongst Cable Networks this year.
