Meet Back on Top

By SteveK 

NBC’s Meet the Press was back in the top spot on Sunday mornings, after falling into 2nd to CBS’ Face the Nation last week for the first time in more than 100 weeks. The NBC program won in the A25-54 demo as well, after finishing 2nd and 3rd the prior two weeks.

Meet the Press was the only program to show week-to-week gains in Total Viewers.

In the demo, NBC was first, averaging 1.3 million viewers, followed by CBS, ABC and FOX. CBS showed the most season-to-date gains, up 44% in Total Viewers and 43% in the demo.

The Tom Brokaw-moderated MTP averaged 4,256,000 Total Viewers, compared to 3,241,000 for CBS, 3,193,000 for ABC and 1,518,000 for FOX.
