“This Week” dominated the ratings this past Sunday for the second week in a row. ABC pulled in the most viewers overall and the most in the key 25-54 demographic -3.67 million and 1.28 million respectively. CBS’ “Face the Nation” came in second with 3.34 million total viewers, and NBC’s “Meet the Press” came in 3rd place with 3.19 million. ABC, CBS, and NBC were all up in viewers compared to last week, amid much discussion of the crisis in the Ukraine, while Fox and Univision were down slightly.
Here’s more from our sister site, TVNewser:
The win was ABC’s first back-to-back win in total viewers in close to 16 years (since 4/19/98 and 4/26/98).
Compared to the same week last year, all of the networks are up in both ratings measurements, with “Al Punto” showing the most growth in total viewers, up +48%, and “This Week” showing the most growth in the demo, +51% in A25-54 viewers.
The numbers for March 2:
||“Face the Nation”||3.34M||953K|
|NBC||“Meet the Press”||3.19M||946K|
|FOX||“Fox News Sunday”||1.32M||416K|
“Face the Nation” is based on the first half-hour only, as the full contiguous hour aired in just 50% of the country.
