“ABC World News with Diane Sawyer” was the only evening newscast to grow its younger viewer average compared to the same week last year. In fact, the Sawyer broadcast, while still trailing No. 1 “NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams,” came in first in younger viewers on Wednesday.

All three shows, including No. 3 “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley,” were down in total viewers compared to the same week last year which included the South Carolina GOP primary debate and a campaign-altering interview with Newt Gingrich‘s ex-wife.

Numbers for the week of January 14, 2013:
