“Meet the Press with David Gregory was #1 again last week and for the second quarter of 2009 – the show’s 47th consecutive quarterly win in Total Viewers. But the gap continues to narrow.
“Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer” was second in Total Viewers last week while “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” was second in younger viewers.
Schieffer’s show is up 13% in both Total Viewers (3.00m from 2.66m) and A25-54 viewers compared to last year.
“This Week” continued to close the gap with “Meet” for the 21st consecutive week. Averaging 3.15 million Total Viewers, the ABC show is up 15% in Total Viewers and up 7% in the demo versus last year. This was the smallest Q2 gap between “This Week and “Meet” since 1998.
