NBC’s “Meet the Press” ranks second in both categories, despite dropping -6% in viewers and -3% in the demo. ABC’s “This Week” ranks third, down -1% and -2% respectively.

“Fox News Sunday” was up +40% and +38%  in the demo, while combining with cable replays for 2.4 million viewers. Replays on FNC averaged a combined 927,000 total viewers and  188,000 in the demo.
