During the holiday-shortened week, “NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams” claims another win. “Nightly” was the only evening newscast to show growth — adding +35,000 viewers compared to the same week last year. All three broadcasts were down in the demo: NBC was down -10%, ABC “World News with Diane Sawyer” was down -7% and “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley” was down -15%.

Thursday, July 4 and Friday July 5 are excluded from the averages. The three evening newscasts are based on three days (Mon-Wed).

Numbers for the week of July 1, 2013:
