Summer viewing patterns seems to be settling in. All three network newscasts were down week-to-week in Total Viewers, and only the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric saw a slight increase in A25-54 demo viewers. NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams won the week in both categories, and wins in both for the second quarter as well. Those figures after the jump.
Williams and Couric anchored their broadcasts last week, while World News anchor Charlie Gibson was off.
