Sunday Show Ratings: January 1

By Alex Weprin Comment

CBS’ “Face the Nation” was the top Sunday public affairs show in total viewers on January 1, though NBC’s “Meet the Press” was tops in the key news demo of adults 25-54. Both programs were very very close, with NBC placing just behind CBS in total viewers, and CBS right behind NBC in the demo.

A placeholder “This Week” on ABC (George Stephanopoulos starts this week) placed third in both categories, followed by “Fox News Sunday” and Univision’s “Al Punto.”

The numbers for January 1:

Network Program Total Viewers A25-54
“Face the Nation” 3.12M 925K
“Meet the Press” 3.05M 954K
ABC “This Week” 2.43M 718K
FOX “Fox News Sunday” 1.03M 390K
Univision “Al Punto” 815K 387K
