ABC’s World News with Charles Gibson was back on top of the evening news ratings last week, taking first place in both Total Viewers and the A25-54 demo for the first time since April 7. The 210,000 Total Viewer victory was the largest advantage by ABC over second-place NBC since the week of October 29.
