Morning Show Ratings: Week of August 29

At this time last year, NBC’s “Today” had a lead of 1,000,000 total viewers and 700,000 A25-54 viewers over second place “Good Morning America” on ABC. “Today” is still the top-rated morning show — for 820 weeks straight — but the margins that divide the two shows are shrinking.
