NBC’s Nightly News with Brian Williams was the ratings victor last week, in a reversal from ABC’s World News the week before. Although NBC won the Total Viewers category by a solid margin, the A25-54 demo victory was by less than 10,000 viewers.
Week-to-week, all three networks saw significant drops in Total Viewers, while NBC saw a slight gain in the demo. The Total Viewers average was the lowest for the three networks since October 2007.
