For the first time since June 27th, 1999, ABC’s “This Week” drew more Total Viewers and A25-54 demo viewers than NBC’s “Meet The Press,” the longest running show in television history. The ratings win for “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” marks the first time in over ten years that the program scored first in both categories during regular coverage. The closest ABC had come was in August 2007, when “This Week” scored first in the demo, but tied “MTP” in Total Viewers.

Here is the ratings breakdown for Sunday:

ABC “This Week” 2.80M / 980K
NBC “Meet the Press” 2.77M / 910K
CBS “Face the Nation” 2.31M / 650K
FOX “Fox News Sunday” 920K / 350K
