After the President Obama blitz, it’s time to take a look at the ratings breakdown for the broadcast Sunday shows. NBC’s “Meet the Press” won the day with 3.29M Total Viewers tuning in. While it was nothing massive, all three broadcast programs that interviewed the president saw increases from the previous week. ABC’s “This Week” saw the largest increase week-to-week (320K Total Viewers/150K demo) while CBS’ “Face the Nation” saw the smallest (60K/40K). “Fox News Sunday” saw a small decrease in Total Viewers for its FOX broadcast.
Guest list for the Sunday shows is here.
