George Stephanopoulos Has Two #1 Shows

By Chris Ariens Comment

Just back from Charlotte covering the DNC, George Stephanopoulos got some good news this morning. The ABC News anchor had two number one shows last week: “Good Morning America” was #1 in the mornings, and “This Week” was #1 Sunday, Sept. 2.

“GMA” has been consistently winning the mornings, and did again last week. Meanwhile, the Sunday public affairs show race has been a back and forth between CBS’s “Face the Nation” and the longtime #1 NBC’s “Meet the Press.” CBS had slightly lower clearance due to the U.S. Open.

“This Week” edged “Meet the Press” by +2,000 Total Viewers and +65,000 younger viewers. The lead on “Face the Nation” was 482,000 Total Viewers / 106,000 demo viewers.
