By Chris Ariens Comment

The first week of daylight saving time is already taking a bite out of evening news viewership. 2.6 million fewer people (or 11%) tuned in to one of the three evening newscasts last week, compared to the week prior. And this was during a week which saw the election of a new pope.

Compared to the same week last year only “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley” saw growth: +9% in total viewers and +5% in younger viewers.

Numbers for the week of March 11, 2013:

NBC ABC CBS
• Total Viewers: 8,069,000 7,193,000 6,403,000
• A25-54: 2,083,000 1,873,000 1,780,000
