It’s another split win in the evenings, as NBC’s Lester Holt gives Nightly News a total viewer win, and David Muir gives ABC’s World News Tonight a win in the A25-54 demo. NBC widened its lead from last week, from a slim .5 percent to a more comfortable 1.3 percent.

Still, Nightly News is down -9 percent in viewers and down -14 in the demo. World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley are both up +4 percent in viewers and flat in the demo compared to the same week last year.

• Total Viewers: 7,569,000 7,468,000 6,535,000
