Pearl Harbor a big hit, India tops in viewership: National Geographic

A record estimated audience of 4.5 million people watched Pearl Harbor: Legacy of Attack on National Geographic Channel (NGC) when it was premiered on May 26 and 27 round the world, with India having the highest number of viewers watching the documentary across all monitored areas.

NGC’s international viewing is measured by peoplemeters in 14 countries around the world, representing 66 per cent of its total audience. While 2.5 million people tuned into Pearl Harbor in these 14 countries, the remaining numbers are from non-measured markets and projected viewership in China.
