Debate appears likely to topple 36-year ratings record

The showdown between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on Monday appears likely to set a record for the most-watched presidential debate ever.

A final viewership estimate from the Nielsen company was not immediately available on Tuesday. But preliminary estimates from 11 of the networks that carried the debate totaled 81.4 million viewers, which would topple a record that had stood for 36 years.

The previous record for presidential debate viewership was the 80.6 million people who saw the only debate in 1980 between incumbent Democrat Jimmy Carter and his Republican challenger Ronald Reagan.

No debate since then had exceeded 70 million viewers.

Clinton has some bragging rights at home. When final results are in, the audience for her first presidential debate will more than double what her husband, former President Bill Clinton, received for his last presidential debate in 1996 (36.3 million viewers).

Only the Super Bowl annually commands a television audience of that size. The biggest audience in U.S. television history was the 114.4 million people who watched the 2015 Super Bowl between New England and Seattle.

The news was particularly good for NBC. Not only did it have more viewers than any other network showing the debate, but "Nightly News" anchor Lester Holt's reviews as moderator were more positive than Matt Lauer received for his interviews with the candidates at a national security forum earlier this month, or CNBC anchors when they did a GOP debate last fall.

Watching the debate was nerve-wracking for NBC Universal chief executive Steve Burke because of the pressure on Holt. Burke said at an appearance in London on Tuesday that Holt "ended up doing a very good job."

Holt was not available for an interview on Tuesday.

Some Republicans were unhappy with Holt, suggesting that he was unfair because he asked tougher questions of Trump, and challenged his facts on issues like Trump's support for the war in Iraq and a court case involving the "stop-and-frisk" method of policing.

That may account for an overnight change of thinking by the candidate. Interviewed by reporters immediately after the debate, Trump said that "I thought Lester did a really good job" and that he thought Holt brought up the topics he wanted.

Several hours later, on Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends," Trump said he thought Holt earned a C or a C-plus for his debate performance, and that he asked unfair questions.

The second of three scheduled debates will be Oct. 9. The "town hall"-style forum will be moderated by CNN's Anderson Cooper and ABC News' Martha Raddatz.

Selena Gomez's Instagram account hits 100M followers

Selena Gomez isn't keeping her Instagram account to herself. The pop star has become the most followed celebrity on the popular photo sharing site.

Gomez's Instagram account became the first to hit the 100-million follower mark this week.

The "Hands to Myself" and "Same Old Love" signer now tops such fellow celebrity Instagramers as Taylor Swift (91.4 million), Beyonce (85.3 million), Ariana Grande (85 million) and Kim Kardashian West (83.6 million).

The last photo she posted was an image of her on stage six weeks ago.

Gomez said in a statement last month that she's taking a break from the spotlight to deal with anxiety, panic attacks and depression stemming from her battle with lupus.

Nielsen company: 81.4 million watched Clinton-Trump presidential debate on 11 networks, preliminary estimates show

2nd woman dies after being struck by car at Ohio concert

A second woman has died after a car drove into a crowd of dancers last month at a community concert in suburban Cleveland.

Parma Heights police say 68-year-old Hinckley resident Nancy Gielas died Monday at a hospital.

The Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County medical examiner's office says another woman, 61-year-old Parma Heights resident Kathleen McDonald, died of heart failure during surgery for a broken leg two days after the Aug. 21 incident.

Police say a 74-year-old woman leaving the concert pressed the gas pedal instead of the brake while pulling out of a parking space and drove onto a makeshift dance floor in a parking lot. Nine people were initially reported injured, including the driver.

A police spokesman has said the driver likely will be charged criminally.

Transgender child actor will be a TV first

Meet Jackson Millarker. He's an actor who's transgender, and he's starring in this week's episode of "Modern Family."

>> Read more trending stories

Not only is this the first time the ABC show has cast a child actor who's transgender, but it's also the first time any TV show has done that.

This is Jackson Millarker. He's 8 years old, from Atlanta, and just happens to be transgender. He plays Lily's friend Tom in this week's Modern Family and he's wonderful. One of the many reasons I love being a part of this show. A photo posted by Ryan Case (@film114) on Sep 26, 2016 at 11:00am PDT

Just a week ago, "Transparent" star Jeffrey Tambor urged Hollywood to cast more transgender actors and actresses during his Emmy acceptance speech.

"I would not be unhappy were I the last cisgender male to play a female transgender on television," Tambor said.

Related: 'Transparent' star calls for more opportunities for transgender actors

GLAAD's most recent "Where We Are on TV" report found there were only seven transgender roles on scripted shows last season — none of which were on the five major broadcast networks.

But only some of those seven characters are played by actors who are transgender.

Perhaps that's starting to change. CBS will debut a new show midseason starring Laverne Cox, marking broadcast TV's first transgender character to be a series regular.

And we're not surprised "Modern Family" is bucking tradition. After all, its characters have always pushed the boundaries, so why should its casting be any different?

Father of Muslim boy arrested over clock sues for defamation

The father of a Muslim boy arrested after taking a homemade clock to his Dallas-area school has sued conservative commentator Glenn Beck and a Texas mayor alleging they falsely portrayed the family as terrorists.

Mohamed Mohamed filed the defamation lawsuit Sept. 21 in Dallas on behalf of himself and his 14-year-old son, Ahmed. Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne (dyn) is among those named in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit seeks a retraction, a jury trial and unspecified damages related to comments following the teen's September 2015 arrest at an Irving school. A charge of having a hoax bomb was later dropped.

The lawsuit describes the Mohamed family as "peaceful Muslims" falsely accused of being terrorists.

Messages left for comment from Beck and Van Duyne weren't immediately returned Tuesday.

'Bull,' 'Designated Survivor' have promising ratings starts

Nielsen's first "most likely to succeed" list is out, and it includes Michael Weatherley, Mandy Moore, Kiefer Sutherland and Kevin James.

They are among the stars in new series that performed well during the first week of the new TV season, the Nielsen company said. The best performer was "Bull," CBS' series starring Weatherley as a trial consultant in a story loosely based on Dr. Phil McGraw's life. Its audience of 15.6 million made it the most-watched debut of the week.

Moore is in the ensemble cast of NBC's "This is Us," and James in the CBS comedy "Kevin Can Wait," which both finished among Nielsen's Top 25 for their debuts.

All three series, however, had the advantage of following more popular returning series on the schedule: CBS' "NCIS" and "The Big Bang Theory," and NBC's "The Voice." That's the television equivalent of beginning a 100-yard dash 50 yards ahead of your opponent.

Sutherland's critically acclaimed "Designated Survivor" on ABC, however, was the only one of the four newcomers to gather a bigger audience than the show immediately preceding it on the schedule. ABC's "black-ish" had 6.4 million viewers for its premiere, and "Designated Survivor" followed it with more than 10 million — a positive sign that many viewers specifically sought it out.

After finishing the summer months behind NBC in the ratings, CBS returned to the top spot last week. It also was the only one of the top four networks to gain in viewers compared to the first week of the 2015 season.

CBS averaged 11.2 million viewers in prime time for premiere week. NBC had 8.7 million, and won among the 18-to-49-year-old demographic sought by advertisers. ABC had 5.9 million, Fox had 3.6 million, Telemundo had 1.7 million, Univision had 1.6 million, ION Television had 1.1 million and the CW had 900,000.

ESPN was the week's most popular cable network, averaging 3.19 million people in prime time. Fox News Channel ad 2.33 million, TNT had 1.8 million, TBS had 1.44 million and HGTV had 1.31 million.

ABC's "World News Tonight" topped the evening newscasts with an average of 8.2 million viewers. NBC's "Nightly News" had 8 million and the "CBS Evening News" had 6.7 million.

For the week of Sept. 19-25, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: NFL Football: Chicago at Dallas, NBC, 20.62 million; NFL Football: Houston at New England, CBS, 17.55 million; "NCIS," CBS, 16 million; "The Big Bang Theory," CBS, 15.82 million; "Bull," CBS, 15.57 million; "NFL Pregame," NBC, 15.41 million; "60 Minutes," CBS, 14.36 million; "The Voice" (Tuesday), NBC, 12.29 million; NFL Football: Philadelphia at Chicago, ESPN, 12.14 million; "The Voice" (Monday), NBC, 12.1 million.
