President Barack Obama wipes his eye as he addresses the crowd at the "Together We Thrive: Tucson and America" event held to support and remember the victims of Saturday's mass shooting, at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

*Nielsen is reporting that 30.8 million people watched President Obama’s address from the Arizona Memorial Service Wednesday, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The speech averaged 30,773,369 on seven networks – ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox, Fox News and MSNBC – when it aired live approximately 8:45-9:15 p.m.

That’s up from the 29.23 million who watched the address on Iraq on August 31, 2010.
