NBC’s “Meet the Press” with David Gregory took first place in the Sunday show showdown this week. “MTP” pulled over half a million more total viewers than ABC but “This Week” and George Stephanopoulos continued to close the viewing gap (the 26th week since January) with “Meet.” CBS’ “Face the Nation” with Bob Schieffer tailed ABC in a fairly close third place.
