Ratings for this past weekend’s public affairs programming are in and ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” is on top. The program won both in ratings for the week and the first time in over a month, since the weekend preceding White House Correspondents on April 27, 2014.
Compared to this week in 2013, ABC was up +50% in total viewers and +73% in the A25-54 demo. CBS’s “Face the Nation” took second in total viewers and third in the A25-54 demographic, but was down percent-wise in both categories compared to last year. NBC’s “Meet the Press” took third overall – down 5% compared to last year – and led CBS in second for A25-54, up 15% from 2013.
“Face the Nation” is based on the first half-hour only, as the full contiguous hour aired in just 67% of the country.
