Sunday Show Ratings, 3.2.14: ABC on Top Again

“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, NBC, and Fox were all up in viewers compared to last week, amid much discussion of the crisis in the Ukraine, while Univision was 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:

Network Program Total Viewers A25-54
ABC
“This Week” 3.67M 1.28M
CBS
“Face the Nation” 3.34M 953K
NBC “Meet the Press” 3.19M 946K
FOX “Fox News Sunday” 1.32M 416K
Univision “Al Punto” 1.08M 507K

“Face the Nation” is based on the first half-hour only, as the full contiguous hour aired in just 50% of the country.
