“NBC Nightly News” remained the top evening news program last week, but, predictably, lost significant viewership week-to-week following two weeks of the Winter Olympics, for which Brian Williams anchored the newscast from Vancouver. “Nightly” lost 1.8 million total viewers and 640K in the demo.
“ABC World News” was also down week-to-week in total viewers and the demo, as was “CBS Evening News.” All three programs were down year-to-year in total viewers. “Evening News” was the only newscast up year-to-year in the demo.
Numbers for the week of Mar. 1:
|• Total Viewers:||9,320,000||7,910,000||6,150,000|
