Sunday Morning Battle: The Indy 550%

TVNewser has received more ratings information on the Sunday morning shows. Based on the available household data for Indianapolis, Meet the Press delivered 91,000 homes (8.5 rating/21 share), up 94% versus the prior week. ABC’s This Week delivered 14,000 homes (1.3 rating/4 share), down 26% versus the prior week.

The Russert-Obama hour on NBC affiliate WTHR beat the Stephanopoulos-Clinton hour on ABC affiliate WRTV by +550%.

This was the best homes delivery for Meet the Press on WTHR in at least 14 years (Feb. 1994), when Indianapolis became a metered market.

This all makes this line from the NYTimes Saturday story about the Sunday morning face-off very interesting.

Aides said Mrs. Clinton was attracted to his one-hour format and ABC-TV’s high ratings in Indiana and North Carolina…

North Carolina, perhaps. We’ll be getting the full national ratings picture later this week.

> More: While MTP finished first in Indianapolis, This Week finished in first place in four of the top 10 markets: Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston and Atlanta; all four markets have very strong ABC stations. The Stephanopoulos show was also #1 in Charlotte, NC (TW — 3.2 / 8 / MTP — 3.1 / 9).
