Evening News Ratings: 8.96 Million Tune In for Gibson’s Final Broadcast

ENLogos_11.10.jpgIt was Charlie Gibson‘s last week at “World News,” but ABC’s average for the five days still came in second to NBC’s “Nightly News.”

On Friday, however, Gibson and “World News” won the night by 250,000 viewers, drawing a total of 8.96 million, which was its largest Friday audience in nearly two years.
