Evening News Ratings: Week of April 15

The three evening newscasts added 3.5 million viewers compared to a typical week last week as interest intensified following Monday’s attacks at the Boston Marathon.

“NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams” was the most-watched and compared to the same week last year was up +18% in total viewers and +35% in younger viewers. “ABC World News with Diane Sawyer” was up +19% / +24%, respectively, while “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley” showed the most viewer growth: +26%, while also up +21% in the demo.

Friday’s broadcasts on all three networks are excluded from the weekly averages as the newscasts were effectively pre-empted by the breaking news of the capture of the second suspect in the bombings.

Numbers for the week of April 15, 2013:

NBC ABC CBS
• Total Viewers: 9,834,000 8,488,000 7,281,000
• A25-54: 2,967,000 2,338,000 2,018,000
