Who was the biggest winner in last night's TV ratings? Barack Obama, of course!
About 37.8 million viewers tuned in to the watch the POTUS give his State of the Union address, but those numbers were down from the 42.8 million who tuned in for his speech last year and the 48 million who watched in 2010. However, numerous celebrities including Lena Dunham, Jim Carrey and Bette Midler tuned in to hear Obama speak last night and voiced their opinions throughout on Twitter.
Check out what they were tweeting below!
Jim Carrey: State of the union. America has become the biggest gun club in the world and every single day now we are seeing that Karma played out. ;^\
Jay Leno: At the #SOTU tonight, when the President walked into the chamber, instead of ‘Hail to the Chief’ they played ‘Hey Big Spender.’ #LenoMono
Katie Couric: Watching and still love the ritual of this night! #SOTU
Lena Dunham: So sorry, can’t watch the State Of The Union right now because I am trying to get some old yogurt out of my room
Bette Midler: Watching State of Union Speech. Could John Boehner look any more sour?
Dane Cook: Boehner looks like how Darth Vader always stares at people underneath his mask. #SOTU
Mia Farrow: “I propose -to make high-quality pre-school available to every child in America.” -President Obama #SOTU YES!!!
