Analyzing the Nielsen rating provided to FishbowlNY by both stations, there is some room for intepretation. But, what is clear, WNYW had a significant victory in the pivotal Adults 25-54 demographic.
The PIX News at Ten anchored by Jodi Applegate registered a .8 rating for the month, while Channel 5 notched a 1.8 in the key demo.
In terms of the Household rating, WNYW doubled WPIX, 3.6 to 1.8.
Applegate, you’ll recall, joined WPIX in October to helm a sleeker evening newscast directly from the newsroom.
