CBS’ “Face the Nation” won on November 18, taking the top spot in both Total Viewers and the A25-54 demographic. NBC’s “Meet the Press” was second in Total Viewers and ABC’s “This Week” was second in the demographic.

Compared to the same week last year, “This Week,” “Face the Nation” and “Fox News Sunday” are all up in both ratings measurements: ABC is up +23% in Total Viewers and +15% in A25-54 viewers, while CBS is up +23%/+4% and Fox is up +21%/+7%.  NBC is up +2% in Total Viewers and down -15% in younger viewers, and Univision is down -4% and -10%, respectively.

Cable replays of “Fox News Sunday” averaged a combined 2,458,000 Total Viewers and 482,000 A25-54 viewers.

“Face the Nation” is based on the first half-hour only, as the full contiguous hour airs in just 47% of the country.
