An exclusive interview with Senator John McCain failed to give ABC’s “This Week” a major ratings bump on Sunday, as the program placed third in both total viewers and the demo behind NBC’s “Meet the Press” and CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

While it did not see a ratings bump with McCain, “This Week” was still up compared to the same Sunday last year.

“Meet the Press” led the pack in both total viewers and the demo, with “Face the nation” #2 in both categories.

“Fox News Sunday” placed fourth among the broadcast shows.

On cable replays, “MTP” added 1.20 million total viewers, while “FNS” added 2.42 million total viewers and 542K demo viewers.

Network Program Total Viewers A25-54
NBC “Meet the Press” 3.46M 1.13M
CBS “Face the Nation” 2.75M 950K
ABC “This Week” 2.42M 730K
FOX “Fox News Sunday” 1.30M 488K
