Sunday Show Ratings: May 25

CBS’ “Face the Nation” won in both total viewers and the A25-54 demographic over Memorial Day weekend, taking home the top spot for the second week straight. ABC’s “This Week” was second; NBC’s “Meet the Press” was preempted due to coverage of the Monaco Grand Prix.

Compared to the same week last year, only “This Week” is up in both ratings measurements, growing +18% in total viewers and +21% in the A25-54 demo. “Face the Nation” is down -11% in total viewers and flat in the demo, “Fox News Sunday” is flat in total viewers and down -9% in the demo, and Univision’s “Al Punto” is down across the board.

Cable replays of “Fox News Sunday” averaged a combined 1,368,000 total viewers and 282,000 A25-54 viewers.

“Face the Nation” is based on the first half-hour only, as the full contiguous hour aired in just 67% of the country. “This Week” was re-titled due to ABC’s coverage of the Indianapolis 500 on May 25.
