Networks #Winning with Charlie Sheen

We told you what Charlie Sheen has meant for the ratings for CNN’s Piers Morgan and for ABC’s “20/20,” and now we know what the unemployed winner has meant to the morning shows.

ABC’s Andrea Canning interviewed Sheen Saturday and clips aired Monday and Tuesday on “Good Morning America.” NBC’s Jeff Rossen interviewed Sheen four days in a row — beginning Sunday and through to his live interview today. Here are the Nielsen fast nationals for Monday and Tuesday.

  • Monday:

“Today” – 5.97M total viewers / 2.74M A25-54
“GMA” – 5.95M total viewers / 2.30M A25-54

  • Tuesday:

“Today” – 5.91M total viewers / 2.80M A25-54
“GMA” – 4.85M total viewers / 1.90M A25-54

That means this week is tracking ahead of the average for the week of Feb. 14, but below the week that Egypt was the big news story.
