Sunday Show Ratings: May 20

By Alex Weprin Comment

The Sunday show ratings see-saw continued unabated last week, with NBC’s “Meet the Press” reclaiming the top spot in both total and demo viewers. CBS’ “Face the Nation” was a close second in both categories.

ABC’s “This Week,” “Fox News Sunday” and “Al Punto” rounded our the top five.

All of the programs were down in both total and demo viewers compared to the same week a year ago.

Rebroadcasts of “Meet the Press” on MSNBC and NBC added 1.04M and 470,000, respectively.

“Face the Nation” is based on the first half-hour only, as the full contiguous hour airs in just 64% of the country.

The numbers for May 20:

Network Program Total Viewers A25-54
“Meet the Press” 2.70M 868K
“Face the Nation” 2.64M 717K
ABC “This Week” 2.02M 601K
FOX “Fox News Sunday” 929M 389K
Univision “Al Punto” 574K 254K
