NEW YORK -- Donald Trump pulled off the upset -- at least in television popularity.

The Nielsen company estimated that 29.8 million people watched Hillary Clinton's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday night on the commercial networks. That fell short of the 32.2 million people who watched Trump speak to the Republicans a week before.

That came despite the Democrats reaching more people than the Republicans on each of the first three days of their respective conventions.
