Evening News Ratings: Week of April 16

“NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams” maintained a wide lead in the evenings, last week drawing 1.2 million more viewers than #2 “World News with Diane Sawyer” which was watched by 1.3 million more viewers than “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley.” But Pelley’s broadcast was once again the only one to grow year-over-year. Compared to the same week last year “Evening News” is up +1.5%, while “Nightly” is down -1% and “World News” is down -7%. All shows were down in younger viewers year-over-year. The drop comes as the week of April 18, 2011 saw a boost in viewership from the same week in 2010.
