“Barring a major surprise, Charlie Gibson‘s ABC World News will win the February ratings sweeps, which concluded last night. Moreover, it will be a clean sweep for ABC,” Gail Shister writes.

“World News will finish No. 1 for the month in both total viewers and in its target audience of 25-to-54-year-olds. The last time ABC turned that particular double play was in November 1996. The last time NBC’s once-untouchable Nightly News ended up No. 2 in a sweeps month (February, May and November) was in November ’01, under anchor Tom Brokaw.”
