Sunday Show Ratings: June 5

By Alex Weprin 

With NBC’s “Meet the Press” pre-empted due to NBC’s coverage of the French Open, CBS’ “Face the Nation” took the top slot among the Sunday morning public affairs shows in both total and demo viewers.

ABC’s “This Week” took the second slot in both categories, with Fox’s “Fox News Sunday” bringing up the rear.

All three programs were down year-to-year in both total and demo viewers, with “MTP” also having been pre-empted last year. And without “MTP,” the three shows were up week-to-week in both categories.


Cable replays of FOX News Sunday averaged a combined 2,206,000 total viewers and 507,000 A25-54 viewers.
