Sunday Show Ratings: February 16

Boosted by NBC’s coverage of the Sochi Olympics, “Meet the Press” won for the second week straight on February 16. CBS’ “Face the Nation” was second and ABC’s “This Week” was third in both total viewers and the A25-54 demographic.

CBS was down -8% in total viewers and up +2% in the demo, while “Fox News Sunday” was down -11% in total viewers and flat in the demo. Univision’s “Al Punto” was down across the board.
