Evening News Ratings: Week of June 22

A week after two evening newscasts set all-time lows, the big three broadcasters bounced back during a big news week that included Iran, the Mark Sanford affair and the death of Michael Jackson. NBC Nightly News won the week averaging 8.4 million Total Viewers and topping 10 million on Thursday night with the Jackson news. ABC World News was just shy of 7 million, and the CBS Evening News brought in 5.6 million. All three shows gained 500k+ viewers from the week prior. World News was preempted on KABC in Los Angeles last Thursday due to the Jackson story. Nightly and Evening News did air in LA that night. Los Angeles represents about 4.94% of the national audience.
