Lester Holt wins his second week as anchor of NBC Nightly News, and he did it with the biggest lead over ABC’s World News Tonight this year. Holt was pitted against his former Weekend Today show co-anchor Amy Robach, who was sitting in for the vacationing David Muir on ABC.

Nightly News has now won 7 of the last 10 weeks among total viewers and had its best A25-54 viewer delivery in more than 3 months.

Compared to the same week last year, CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley was up the most in viewers (+17 percent), while Nightly News was up the most in the A25-54 demo (+17 percent).

All three broadcasts are based on a four-day average (Mon-Thurs) due to the July 4th holiday.

Numbers for the week of June 29, 2015:

• Total Viewers: 8,449,000 7,498,000 6,737,000
• A25-54: 1,702,000 1,491,000 1,261,000
