There was no Super Bowl hangover for ABC’s Good Morning America as it continued to be the most-watched morning show in total viewers and the adults 25-54 demo for the fourth week in a row.
GMA, which also had the first TV interview with Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin the Monday after Super Bowl LVII, matched its longest stretch as the top morning show in the advertiser-coveted demo of Adults 25-54.
For the week of February 13, according to live-plus-same-day data from Nielsen, GMA averaged 3.29 million total viewers and 746,000 A25-54 viewers in the A25-54 demo.
GMA was down in total viewers by -1% compared to the previous week but flat in the A25-54 demo. When looking at the morning show’s performance versus the same week in 2022, it was down by -1% in total viewers and -8% in the demo.
NBC’s Today show ranked No. 2 in total viewers and the A25-54 demo with 2.86 million viewers and 729,000 A25-54 viewers for the week of Feb. 13.
