The Newseum May Not Be Helping

“This Week”‘s debut at the Newseum this past Sunday didn’t help the Sunday show’s DC ratings:

Household ratings:

Meet the Press: 3.2
Face the Nation: 2.2.
Fox News Sunday: 2.0
This Week: 0.8

>UPDATE: “This Week,” as always, did much better nationally. From the release:

    According to Nielsen Media Research for Sunday, April 20, 2008, ABC News’ “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” outperformed CBS’ “Face the Nation” among Total Viewers. This is the 20th time this season and eighth consecutive week “This Week” beat “Face” in Total Viewers. The last time that “This Week” won that many consecutive weeks was December 2001.

    Among the key Adults 25-54 demographic, “This Week” grew 12% compared to last year. “This Week” is also the only Sunday discussion program to grow among both Total Viewers and Adults 25-54 season to date.
    Finally, “This Week” continues to close the Total Viewing and A25-54 demo gaps with NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Season to date, “This Week” closed the Adults 25-54 demo gap with NBC by 26% and the total viewing gap by 16%.
