Evening News Ratings: Week of August 8

Another up week for the three network evening newscasts. #2 “ABC World News with Diane Sawyer” is up the most, +7% compared to the same week last year. “NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams” — #1 for 100 consecutive weeks — is up +3% and #3 the “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley” was up +2%. Only ABC was up in A25-54 viewers, while NBC and CBS were flat. The rocky Wall Street week no doubt played a role in tune-in.

“World News” narrowed the margin with “Nightly News” compared to the same week last year in Total Viewers (443,000 vs. 733,000) and A25-54 viewers (315,000 vs. 491,000). The Sawyer broadcast was also #1 on Friday night.
