Sunday Show Ratings: Jan 31

By Chris Ariens 

A day before the Iowa Caucus, CBS’s Face the Nation was the most-watched Sunday public affairs show, while NBC’s Meet the Press was No. 1 in the A25-54 demo. Compared to the same Sunday last year only Fox News Sunday saw growth in both viewers and the demo. Chris Wallace had a sit-down interview with Donald Trump, Trump’s first on FNC following his snub of the Fox News GOP debate a few days earlier.

A cable replay of Fox News Sunday on Fox News Channel averaged 686,000 total viewers and 156,000 in the demo.

Face the Nation is based on the first half-hour only, as the full contiguous hour aired in just 58 percent of the country.

The numbers for January 31:

Network Program Total Viewers A25-54
CBS Face the Nation 3.682M 1.009M
NBC Meet the Press 3.561M 1.022M
ABC This Week 3.362M 955,000
FOX Fox News Sunday 1.621M 497,000
UNIV Al Punto 933,000 407,000
