“Face the Nation” was the number one Sunday show for the third week in a row this past Sunday with 3.64 million viewers. ABC’s “This Week” came in second with 2.92 million viewers, while NBC’s “Meet the Press” continued a disappointing trend by coming in third with 2.78 million. In somewhat of a silver lining for “MTP”, they did manage to beat ABC in the 25 – 54 age demographic, bringing in 881,ooo viewers compared to 799,000 for “This Week.”
The numbers for March 30:
|CBS||“Face the Nation”||3.64M||1.04M|
|NBC||“Meet the Press”||2.78M||881K|
|FOX||“Fox News Sunday”||1.29M||376K|
“Face the Nation” is based on the first half-hour only, as the full contiguous hour aired in just 50% of the country.
