Sunday Show Ratings: “Meet” Slides, Steph Pulls Second

For the week of May 11, NBC’s “Meet the Press” held its first place spot but Gregory’s lead continues to slip. ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” closed the YOY gap with “Meet” for the 16th consecutive week.

More interesting, “Meet” held its first place spot but the show dropped 23% compared to May 2008 and posted its lowest total viewer delivery for a May Sweep since 1993.

In third this week, CBS’ “Face the Nation” stands a chance to shake things up on Sunday with guest Colin Powell slated for this weekend’s broadcast.
