Evening News Ratings: Week of April 30

Once again “NBC Nightly News” was the top evening news program in both total viewers and adults 25-54 for the week of April 30-May 4. “ABC World News” remained in second place in both categories, with the “CBS Evening News” placing third.

The same week last year saw the aftermath of the death of Osama bin Laden, which led to substantially higher ratings than normal. As a result both ABC and NBC were down in both total and demo viewers. CBS was down in the demo, but managed to grow slightly in total viewers.

Numbers for the week of April 30, 2012:

NBC ABC CBS
• Total Viewers: 7,794,000 7,033,000 5,861,000
• A25-54: 2,142,000 1,845,000 1,678,000
