“Meet the Press” did not air this week due to NBC’s coverage of the French Open allowing ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” to claim the top-rated Sunday show spot. Sans French Open, the battle would certainly have proved interesting with Sec. of State Hillary Clinton booked for Steph’s show.
ABC, FOX and CBS’ total viewership all grew from week-to-week but ABC was also the only network to grow year-over-year in both categories.
For Sunday May 31, 2009:
Total Viewers: ABC: 3,110,000 / CBS: 2,490,000 / FOX: 1,360,000
25-54 demo: ABC: 1,050,000 / CBS: 780,000 / FOX: 550,000
