Sunday Show Ratings: January 8

By Merrill Knox Comment

Despite a tight ratings battle between NBC and CBS of late, Sunday morning’s NBC debate — which drew more than 4,000,000 viewers  — propelled “Meet the Press” to a win on January 8.

“Face the Nation” placed second in both categories, followed by ABC’s “This Week” in third on the day of George Stephanopoulos’ debut (again). “Fox News Sunday” and Univision’s “Al Punto” traded off fourth and fifth place in total and demo viewers.

The numbers for January 8:

Network Program Total Viewers A25-54
“Meet the Press” 4.15M 1.44M
“Face the Nation” 2.76M 924K
ABC “This Week” 2.36M 747K
FOX “Fox News Sunday” 924K 324K
Univision “Al Punto” 870K 404K
