With ample coverage of the remembrances of Tim Russert, NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams was the top rated evening newscast last week.
NBC was the only network to grow in Total Viewers week-to-week, while all networks saw drops in the demo. ABC’s average is based on a four-day week with Tuesday being excluded because of low coverage due to the NBA finals.
