Last night, BET aired part two of three-part miniseries The New Edition Story. Just a few channels over on ABC was a national broadcast of Donald Trump’s first interview as president. Any guesses as to what our fellow Americans were more interested in? Twitter ratings charted The New Edition Story as the No. 1 trending topic with 1.5 million interactions, while Trump dropped to the No. 5 slot (after NBA basketball) with only 268k interactions.
As usual, we could always count on the Twitterverse to express their sentiments on the situation:
Anyone looking for a distraction from Trump, watch BET's "The New Edition Story". Great campy fun. 3-Day event!— charlynne hopson (@locations131) January 25, 2017
