All three evening newscasts were down in Total Viewers week-to-week last week, following the death of Michael Jackson which gave a spike in viewership the two weeks prior.
NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams wins again with an 800,000 Total Viewer lead over #2 ABC World News with Charles Gibson.
Gibson’s broadcast was the only show to grow in younger viewers week-to-week, up 3% — its best delivery since the week of June 1.
