Evening News Ratings: Week of June 15

The week of June 15, 2009 will go down as the lowest-rated for two of the three network evening newscasts as far back as the records go – the 1991-92 season. The CBS Evening News dipped below 5m Total Viewers for the first time and ABC World News was below 6.5m – a loss of a half million viewers from the prior week. It should be noted the anchors of both broadcasts, Katie Couric and Charles Gibson, were on vacation last week.

NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams won the week with a 3-day (Mon-Wed) average, but also lost more than half a million viewers from the week prior.

Total Viewers: NBC: 7,750,000 / ABC: 6,420,000 / CBS: 4,890,000

25-54 demo: NBC: 2,300,000 / ABC: 1,770,000 / CBS: 1,420,000
