Evening News Ratings: Week of June 3

By Chris Ariens Comment

ABC’s “World News with Diane Sawyer” remains in second place in the evening news ratings, but was the only broadcast to show growth in both total viewers (+4%) and the younger demo (+.5%) compared to the same week last year. And for the first time since September, “World News” won two nights of the week — Monday and Friday.

“Nightly News with Brian Williams” still won the week by more than a half million viewers. The NBC broadcast was flat vs. last year in total viewers and down -6% in the demo. “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley” was up the most of the three shows: +9% in total viewers and flat in the younger demo.

Due to the NBA Finals Game 1 on Thursday “World News” was removed from the average and based on four days, while “Nightly News” and “Evening News” are based on five days.

Numbers for the week of June 3, 2013:

• Total Viewers: 7,538,000 6,990,000 5,700,000
• A25-54: 1,928,000 1,712,000 1,513,000
