Better Luck ‘This Week,’ ABC

Cousin TVNewser last night reported some numbers that are sure to be causing some consternation on DeSales Street today: ‘This Week’ delivered its lowest ratings of the year on February 6, with George Stephanopoulos averaging only 2.490 million. NBC’s Meet the Press with its 4.1 million viewers outperformed ABC by 60 percent, the peacock network bragged this week.

We’ll see whether the team can do any better this week with a debate over the budget starring Sens. Judd Gregg and Kent Conrad.
