Less people were interested in what President Obama had to say this year.

About 43 million people watched his State of the Union address Tuesday night, which was down in viewership from the previous year. In fact, about 11% less people watched the speech.

The speech was shown on ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, Telemundo, Univision, CNN, Centric, CNBC, Fox News Channel and MSNBC.

Meanwhile, one of the few channels that did not air the State of the Union, The CW, had its most-watched Tuesday of the season with 2 million viewers.

Guess people just couldn't miss out on Hellcats!

Did U watch the State of the Union address??

Tucson Hero To Spend Birthday At State Of The Union With Michelle Obama

obamas to honor tucson hero

What a lovely gesture to make for this brave, young man!

Daniel Hernandez Jr., an intern for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, will sit next to Michelle Obama at tomorrow's State of the Union, which happens to be on his birthday.

The young man showed SUCH bravery when he rushed to Congresswoman Gifford's aid during the mass shooting in Tucson, Arizona two weeks ago.

Here's what he had to say about his opportunity to attend the State of the Union on his birthday:

"I'm both honored and excited to have the opportunity to travel to our nation's Capitol for a once in a lifetime event. Also the chance to bring my father along for his first trip to Washington, D.C. The State of the Union is a pivotal moment because it is our opportunity to find where we are and where we will be going as a nation in this upcoming year."

We hope it's a wonderful trip, Daniel! You deserve it!

…And Happy Birthday in advance!
