Sunday Show Ratings: August 21

“Meet the Press” was the top-rated Sunday morning public affairs show last Sunday. But #2 “Face the Nation” with substitute host Norah O’Donnell not only came in second in total viewers, she tied her old network in the A25-54 demo rating (0.6). Compared to the same week last year, “Face the Nation” and “FOX News Sunday” were up, while “Meet the Press” and ABC’s “This Week” were down in both total viewers and A25-54 viewers. O’Donnell wasn’t the only substitute anchor. All four shows had subs filling in: Savannah Guthrie on MTP, Bret Baier on “FOX News Sunday” and Jake Tapper on “This Week.”
