Evening News Ratings: Week of April 23

“NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams” was on top again for the week of April 23, drawing 885,000 more viewers than second-place “ABC World News with Diane Sawyer.” ABC’s broadcast, in turn, outdrew “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley” by 1.5 million viewers.

ABC’s was the only newscast to grow week-to-week. CBS was the only one to improve on its Total Viewer audience compared to the same week last year, which saw large audiences due to both the Royal Wedding and heavy damage from storms across the South. All three programs were down in younger viewers year-over-year.

Numbers for the week of April 23, 2012:

NBC ABC CBS
• Total Viewers: 8,190,000 7,305,000 5,771,000
• A25-54: 2,205,000 1,950,000 1,630,000
