Post-Koppel Nightline Up In The Demo

Ratings for the new Nightline are slightly higher than they were this time last year, according to ABC.

In the 25-54 demo: “For the week of Feb. 13, the show averaged a 1.6 rating, up 14% from the year before. The show had been averaging a 1.4 in the demo, but has been trending up for the past four weeks,” B&C reports. For the week of Jan. 30, the program’s demo rating rose to a 1.5, and for the last two weeks, it’s been steady at a 1.6.

Here are the last four weeks, in the 25-54 demo and total viewers, compared to their respective weeks in 2005:
