Sunday Show Ratings: July 3

By Alex Weprin Comment

The July 4th holiday weekend and Wimbledon led to an unusual Sunday for the network public affairs programs. ABC’s “This Week” was the top program in both total viewers and adults 25-54. The usual leader, NBC’s “Meet the press,” was preempted by the network’s coverage of Wimbledon.

CBS’ “Face the nation” placed second in both categories, and “Fox News Sunday” was third.

CBS and Fox were down compared to the same week last year, while ABC was down in total viewers but up in the demo.

Because of the Casey Anthony trial and a holiday schedule, “FNS” was not replayed on Fox News Channel.
