ABC’s “This Week” was the most-watched Sunday public affairs show among younger viewers on February 24, besting CBS “Face the Nation” by +46,000 and NBC’s “Meet the Press” by +99,000. “This Week” was also the only show to improve in both ratings measurements, +9% in Total Viewers and +10% in the demo, compared to the same week last year.

CBS’ “Face the Nation,” which won in Total Viewers, was up +2% in Total Viewers and flat in the A25-54 demographic. Univision’s “Al Punto” was down -10% in Total Viewers but up +11 among younger viewers. NBC’s “Meet the Press” (-18%/-29%) and “Fox News Sunday” (-6%/-21%) were down across the board.
