Evening News Ratings: Week of Sept. 28

By Chris Ariens 

Lester Holt gives NBC Nightly News another win, and its most-watched week since March. The NBC broadcast also showed the most growth in the A25-54 demo, up +5 percent vs. the same week last year, while CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley was up the most in total viewers: +9 percent. ABC’s World News Tonight with David Muir was up in viewers (+4 percent) but down in the demo (-5 percent).

Because of preemptions due to Thursday Night Football, CBS’s average is based on four days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

Numbers for the week of Sept. 28, 2015:

• Total Viewers: 8,607,000 8,473,000 7,229,000
• A25-54: 2,040,000 1,960,000 1,640,000
