Evening News Ratings: Week of April 18

As the network evening news anchors pack their bags for the once-in-a-generation news story of the British royal wedding, they continue to ride a wave of good ratings news of late. All three shows were up compared to the same week last year. In fact, the shows combined drew almost 2 million more viewers than the week of April 19, 2010.

“NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams” led the way in both total viewers and the demo, +794K over the week of April 19, 2010. ABC’s “World News with Diane Sawyer” was up +570,000 total viewers and the
“CBS Evening News with Katie Couric” gained +596,000 viewers year-over-year. The trend of viewer drop-off as daylight saving time begins does not seem to be taking hold this year.

Numbers for the week of April 18:

• Total Viewers: 8,434,000 7,655,000 5,686,000
• A25-54: 2,513,000 1,988,000 1,803,000
