The NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams finished in first place last week in the A25-54 demo as well as Total Viewers. The weekly battle for ratings supremacy between NBC and ABC’s World News was close again, especially in the demo (just 30,000 viewers separated first and second).
NBC and CBS saw increases in Total Viewers week-to-week, while all networks grew in the demo.
ABC’s average is based on a four-day week (Thursday excluded because of low coverage due to NBA Finals) and NBC’s average is based on a three-day week (Monday and Wednesday excluded because of low coverage due to the Stanley Cup Finals).
