Evening News Ratings: Week of Dec. 15

The NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric saw their most Total Viewers last week in nearly two years, with NBC winning in the category for the 10th week in a row. NBC had its highest Total Viewer average since the week of February 12, 2007. For CBS — its highest since the week of February 26, 2007.

NBC also won in the A25-54 demo, for the fourth week in a row. But It was also the only network to decline week-to-week in the category.

Week-to-week, ABC World News with Charles Gibson grew the most of any evening newscast in Total Viewers and the demo. We’ll have more on the growing evening news viewership later today.
