Evening News Ratings: Week of March 23

For the 24th consecutive week, NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams was the top-rated evening newscast last week in Total Viewers (18th week in a row in the A25-54 demo). Compared to the same week last year, NBC is up in both categories while ABC and CBS have declined.

ABC has extended its lead over CBS, however, in both categories year-to-year. It is also ABC’s largest lead over CBS this month.

All three networks were up week-to-week in Total Viewers, with NBC was up by the most. NBC and ABC grew week-to-week in the demo.

ABC World News had reduced coverage due to President Obama’s news conference on Tuesday, and the average was not counted. The CBS Evening News average on Thursday and Friday was excluded due to NCAA basketball.

Total Viewers: NBC: 9,210,000 / ABC: 8,100,000 / CBS: 6,120,000

25-54 demo: NBC: 2,830,000 / ABC: 2,370,000 / CBS: 1,760,000
