It was a relatively slow week ratings-wise for the broadcast evening news program March 28-April 1.

This was despite plenty of news in Libya, the Middle East and Japan, as well as political news at home.

As usual “NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams” won the week with 8.76 million total viewers, and 2.61 adults 25-54. “ABC World News with Diane Sawyer” placed 2nd with 7.86 million total viewers and 2.17 A25-54. “CBS Evening News with Katie Couric” finished a distant third.

Numbers for the week of March 28:

• Total Viewers: 8,760,000 7,860,000 5,620,000
• A25-54: 2,610,000 2,170,000 1,690,000
