Evening News Ratings: Week of June 30

The Fourth of July holiday week was not kind to the network evening newscasts. All three were down week-to-week, NBC & ABC both down more than 600K Total Viewers. Last week was also the lowest ever Total Viewer and A25-54 delivery for World News with Charles Gibson since the start of People Meters. World News was down 8% year-to-year, while Nightly News with Brian Williams was up 8% year-to-year.

Gibson anchored all five nights last week; Katie Couric anchored her broadcast Mon-Wed, Harry Smith was in on Thursday and Russ Mitchell on Friday. And on NBC, Williams anchored Mon-Wed with Lester Holt subbing on Thursday and Friday.

NBC Nightly News had a different title on Thursday due to Wimbledon Tennis coverage and wasn’t included in the average. All three broadcasts were labeled as specials on Friday for the July 4th holiday.
