Inside The ‘Situation Room’ with Obama Interview Exclusive Doesn’t Rock ‘Rock Center’ Ratings

A big, exclusive look inside the White House Situation Room on the night Osama Bin Laden was killed may have been a big “get” for NBC News, but the ratings showed only a modest gain for “Rock Center.”

“Rock Center” averaged 4.1 million viewers at 9 PM, about average for the season in total viewers, though its 2.8 rating/4 share is up slightly from the season average. The good news is that viewers tuned in as the program went on, as the second half-hour saw more viewers than the first half-hour.

“Rock Center” was up against tough sweeps competition. On Fox, “American idol” held court, while CBS had a new episode of “Criminal Minds” and ABC had “Modern Family.”
