Sunday Show Ratings: April 15, 2012

By Chris Ariens 

It’s a split decision for the Sunday public affairs show. CBS’ “Face the Nation” was the top Sunday public affairs show in Total Viewers while NBC’s “Meet the Press” was tops in the demo on April 15. ABC’s “This Week” came in second in younger viewers. It’s the first time the George Stephanopoulos-moderated show has topped the Bob Schieffer show in younger viewers this season. As we reported last night, Keith Olbermann will be a part of the “This Week” roundtable Sunday.

Compared to the same week last year all the shows are up.

“Face the Nation” is based on the first half-hour only, as the full contiguous hour airs in just 64% of the country.

Network Program Total Viewers A25-54
