Evening News Ratings: Week of Mar. 17

Just as the week before, ABC’s World News and NBC’s Nightly News split the ratings win last week. World News won the A25-54 demo and Nightly News won in Total Viewers. For the 2008 calender year, the tightest battle comes in the demo, where ABC has seen wins in five weeks while NBC has won it five weeks as well (one week the networks tied). In Total Viewers, NBC has won nine weeks compared to two for ABC.

All three networks saw big gains week-to-week, coming after a low week (due to the Daylight Saving Time switch).

Total Viewers: NBC: 8,920,000 / ABC: 8,460,000 / CBS: 6,620,000

25-54 demo: ABC: 2,650,000 / NBC: 2,570,000 / CBS: 2,220,000

25-54 rating: ABC: 2.2/9 / NBC: 2.1/8 / CBS: 1.8/7
