Evening News Ratings: Week of Nov. 16

By Chris Ariens 

NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt was the most-watched newscast last week, which saw all three broadcasts originate from Paris for much of the week following the terror attacks there Nov. 13. Nightly was the only broadcast to see growth in the A25-54 demo, up less than 1 percent vs. the same week last year.

The CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley was the only broadcast to see growth among total viewers, up +5 percent vs. last year. It was also Evening News’ biggest audience delivery since late February. Season-to-date World News Tonight with David Muir continues to see its biggest audience in 8 years. But the ABC newscast was the only one to shed both total viewers and demo viewers vs. the same week last year.

Numbers for the week of Nov. 16, 2015:

• Total Viewers: 9,608,000 9,161,000 7,985,000
• A25-54: 2,467,000 2,064,000 1,748,000
