Evening News Ratings: Week of Aug. 30

ENLogos_4.13.jpgThere was a bounce-back for the three evening newscasts last week.

A week after the combined averages of “NBC Nightly News”, ABC’s “World News” and the “CBS Evening News” hit their lowest-ever level at 18.7 million Total Viewers, the three shows averaged 20.4 million last week.

Nightly News with Brian Williams led the pack topping the 8 million Total Viewer mark for the first time since the week of April 5, 2010. “World News with Diane Sawyer” trailed Nightly by more than 1 million viewers, followed by Katie Couric‘s Evening News which saw its best week since June 7.

Coverage of Hurricane Earl surely drove viewers to the newscasts.

Numbers for the week of August 30, 2010.
