Sunday Show Ratings: December 2

By Merrill Knox Comment

CBS’ “Face the Nation” held on to the top spot on December 2. NBC’s “Meet the Press” was second in Total Viewers and ABC’s “This Week” was second in A25-54 viewers.

“Fox News Sunday” was fourth in Total Viewers and fifth in the A25-54 demographic, and Univision’s “Al Punto” was fifth in Total Viewers and fourth in the demo.

Compared to the same week last year, only Univision is showing growth in both ratings measurements: “Al Punto” is up +38% in Total Viewers and +64% in A25-54 viewers. ABC is up +6% in Total Viewers but down -2% in the demo, while NBC, CBS and Fox are down across the board.

Cable replays of “Fox News Sunday” averaged a combined 1,775,000 Total Viewers and 316,000 A25-54 viewers.

“Face the Nation” is based on the first half-hour only, as the full contiguous hour aired in just 45% of the country.
