In the A25-54 demo, NBC was first with a 1.4 rating, followed by CBS with a 1.0, ABC with .9 and FOX with a .4. In the important Washington, D.C. market, NBC finished on top, followed by CBS, FOX and ABC.
NBC’s Meet the Press averaged 4,748,000 Total Viewers, followed by CBS’ Face the Nation with 3,472,000, ABC’s This Week with 3,215,000 and FOX News Sunday with 1,459,000.
