With coverage of the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and the approach of Hurricane Irma, ABC’s World News Tonight with David Muir was the most watched newscast last week, while NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt was most-watched in the A25-54 demo.

ABC saw the most growth overall: +14 percent in viewers and +20 percent in the demo. Nightly News was up +11 percent in viewers and up +15 percent in the demo, seeing its 64th straight weekly win among younger viewers.
