Evening News Ratings: ABC Beats NBC 4 Out Of 5 Nights; Couric’s Worst Week Yet

Last week, NBC Nightly News had its slimmest lead over ABC’s World News in five months. This TV Week ratings recap includes two notable grafs:

And: The CBS Evening News “had its lowest week since the exit of Bob Schieffer… For the week of Dec. 4, CBS averaged 7.45 million total viewers, with 2.26 million in the demo. That’s a year-to-year drop of 10 percent and 13 percent, respectively.”
