ABC’s World News Tonight expects to hit a milestone, perhaps in time for tonight’s broadcast: two million likes on the WNT Facebook page.

Among the network evening newscasts, ABC is well out in front, with 1,998,523 likes (as of this writing), leading NBC Nightly News, which has 1,622,910, and the CBS Evening News, far behind with just 528,479.

The show is on pace to break its second million in about a quarter of the time, in about sixteen months.
