Steve Beshear, the former governor of Kentucky, has been tapped to deliver the Democratic party’s response to President Donald Trump’s address to both house of Congress for one big reason.

So total viewers dropped by 4%, but in the advertiser-coveted 18- to 49-year-old demographic, there was 14% drop in ratings year-over-year.
