“The CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley,” now in its eighth month, continues to add viewers: +6% compared to the same week last year while “World News” is down -7% and “Nightly News” is down -6% in Total Viewers. Pelley is still running third, trailing “World News with Diane Sawyer” by 1.5 million viewers, which is one million behind “NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams.”

Tuesday’s “World News” is left out of the average, due to the “State of the Union” address. “Nightly News” and “Evening News” are based on 5 days.
