Sunday Show Ratings: Feb. 7

By Chris Ariens 

CBS’s Face the Nation was the most-watched Sunday public affairs show last weekend. The broadcast was a half hour across the nation, sandwiched in between the highly-rated CBS Sunday Morning and the start of CBS’s Super Bowl Sunday coverage.

Coming after the Iowa Caucus and before the New Hampshire Primary, all the Sunday shows were up compared to the same day last year. ABC’s This Week and NBC’s Meet the Press were up the most, up a whopping +32 percent year-over-year in viewers. MTP was up the most in the A25-54 demo, up +38 percent.

Cable replays of Fox News Sunday on Fox News Channel averaged a combined 2,714,000 viewers and 559,000 in the A25-54 demo.
