Evening News Ratings: Week of June 29

NBC Nightly News won the week, but lost about 40,000 Total Viewers from the week prior. The Brian Williams broadcast still had a 1.19M viewer lead over #2 ABC World News. The Charles Gibson broadcast gained 160,000 viewers week-to-week and had ts best delivery since the week of May 4.

And for the fifth time this year, NBC News has coded one of their shows differently, which takes it out of the Nielsen average. Despite having full coverage last Thursday, Nightly News was called “Nitely News.” NBC has also done this on June 9, 12, 18 and 19.

NBC experienced low coverage due to sports on June 9 (84%) and June 12 (83%). But the other three days they had regular coverage but those were either a Thursday or Friday, the two lowest rated days of the week. The practice, however, is within Nielsen’s guidelines.

Total Viewers: NBC: 8,340,000 / ABC: 7,150,000 / CBS: 5,690,000

A25-54 rating/share: NBC: 2.1/9 / ABC: 1.6/7 / CBS: 1.3/5
