Big Numbers for Robin Roberts’ Return

By Chris Ariens 

“Good Morning America” had its most-watched show since the day after the 2012 election yesterday as Robin Roberts returned from medical leave.

“GMA” drew 6.121M total viewers, +24% better than the “Today” show’s 4.933M. That’s the largest total viewer gap since Nov. 28, 2012, the day after the “Dancing with the Stars” finale.

The two shows tied in the A25-54 rating with a 1.9, while “GMA” had the edge in A25-54 viewership: 2.276M vs. 2.240M. And for the week so far, “Today” has the lead in demo viewership.
