An interesting story is emerging among the Sunday public affairs shows. NBC’s “Meet the Press with David Gregory” was #1 last week, but #2 ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” narrowed the Total Viewer gap with “Meet” again last Sunday by 35,000 more viewers than the week before.

And while “Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer” tied “This Week,” in Total Viewers, the CBS show was #1 in younger viewers.

Meanwhile, as FOX News Sunday lags on the broadcast network the combined viewings on Fox News Channel brought viewership to 3.74M viewers, ahead of the combined 3.55M first-run and MSNBC re-runs of “Meet.” Update: We left out the 2am re-air of “Meet the Press” on NBC (694K Total Viewers). With that showing, the combined total of “Meet” is 4.25M, ahead of FOX News Sunday.

ABC “This Week” 2.65M 850K
