NBC’s Meet the Press was the No. 1 Sunday public affairs show last week in both total viewers and the A25-54 demo. As the 2016 primaries kick into high gear, all the Sunday shows grew compared to the same day last year. Fox New Sunday, with guest Rush Limbaugh, had its highest-rated program since November and was up the most of all shows in viewers: up +69 percent, while Meet the Press was up the most in the A25-54 demo: up +57 percent vs. the same day last year.

Cable replays of Fox News Sunday on FNC averaged a combined 4,331,000 viewers and 618,000 in the demo.

Face the Nation is based on the first half-hour only, as the full contiguous hour aired in just 57.83 percent of the country.
