Evening News Ratings: Week of May 18

NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams has reached the half-year mark for consecutive A25-54 demo wins, finishing first for the 26th time last week. However it is the third consecutive week ABC World News with Charles Gibson has narrowed the gap between the programs, with a demo difference of just 170,000 last week. NBC has won in Total Viewers for 32 consecutive weeks.
