NEW YORK DAILY NEWS: CBS News reports Stewart’s event drew 215,000 people to the National Mall in Washington, based on a crowd estimate from AirPhotosLive.com.

A Comedy Central representative told Entertainment Weekly that 250,000 people attended in person, while 4 million streamed the event on their computers at home. Prior to the rallies, the network submitted an event permit which estimated that 60,000 people would attend, but it seems the crowd well exceeded expectations. MORE
