NBC Nightly came in first in Total Viewers and the demo last week. ABC World News was more than a half million Total Viewers behind Nightly. It’s important to note that ABC took last Tuesday’s broadcast out of the average because their prime time coverage of Super Tuesday preempted World News on the west coast. All three broadcasts were down slightly week-to-week in Total Viewers.
