As usual, “NBC Nightly News” was the top network evening newscast for the week of March 26, though ABC’s “World News” continues to nip at its heels in total and demo viewers, narrowing the viewership gap with NBC year-to-year.

Compared to the same week last year, only the “CBS Evening News” was up in total viewers, and was down only slightly in the demo. ABC and NBC were down significantly in both total and demo viewers.

Last year saw the aftermath of the tsunami in Japan, and the beginning of TV news covering the Libyan uprising.

Numbers for the week of March 26, 2012:

NBC ABC CBS
• Total Viewers: 7,995,000 7,121,000 5,803,000
• A25-54: 2,205,000 1,913,000 1,680,000
