The Christmas week was a short one for the morning shows — due to the holiday, the ratings were based on a three-day (Mon-Wed) average — but all three broadcasts were down from the week prior.
NBC retained its first-place position among the three programs. It was George Stephanopoulos’ second week as an anchor on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
The average for the week of Dec. 21:
Total Viewers: NBC: 5.67M / ABC: 4.49M / CBS: 2.83M
A25-54: NBC: 2.45M / ABC: 1.91M / CBS: 1.20M
