NBC Leads 6.15.14 Sunday Show Total Viewer and A25-54 Ratings in DC Market

On Sunday, June 15, NBC’s “Meet the Press” was the most watched Sunday Show in the DC market, with more total viewers than CBS’s “Face the Nation” and ABC’s “This Week” combined, according to Nielsen Media Research. Although down 42% in P2+ versus the same Sunday last year (6/16/2013), the NBC program with David Gregory hosted Luke Russert, son of the late Tim Russert, whom hosted the program for 16 years and passed away six years ago the Friday before the Father’s Day Sunday Show airing.

“FOX News Sunday” clocked in a with 43,000 total viewers in the Washington market – second to that of NBC which had 51,000 total viewers in the market – more than doubling its audience from the same week last year (up 59% in P2+). It closed out with Robert De Niro on a collection of paintings by his late father and his HBO documentary “Remembering the Artist.”

CBS’s “Face the Nation” had 25,000 total viewers, just ahead of ABC’s “This Week” with 23,000, which had House Majority Leader Eric Cantor on its program after losing his primary that week.

Placements were the same in the A25-54 demo as they were in total viewers in the Washington market. Worth noting - ABC’s “This Week” only had 2,000 DC A25-54 viewers.
