Evening News Ratings: Week of May 30

It was an unusual week for the evening newscasts, with the Memorial Day holiday and a pair of major sporting events meaning that the ratings were based on limited data. As usual :”NBC Nightly News” placed first, though that was based only on numbers from Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, with a Stanley Cup playoff game on Wednesday.

“ABC World News” placed second, but was based only on Wednesday and Friday, due to the holiday and a pair of NBA playoff games.

“CBS Evening News” placed third, and was based on numbers from Tuesday-Friday.

All three programs were down compared to the same week last year except for CBS, which was flat.

Numbers for the week of May 30:

NBC ABC CBS
• Total Viewers: 7,849,000 6,690,000 5,511,000
• A25-54: 2,211,000 1,789,000 1,542,000
