Sunday Show Ratings: May 6

The Sunday show pendulum swung back to NBC this week as “Meet the Press” topped CBS’ “Face the Nation” by 40,000 Total Viewers and 146,000 A25-54 viewers. Vice President Joe Biden was the guest on “MTP.”

Compared to the same week last year, only Univision’s “Al Punto” grew in both ratings measurements. “Face the Nation,” “Meet the Press,” ABC’s “This Week” and “Fox News Sunday” are down in both.

Cable rebroadcasts of “Fox News Sunday” averaged a combined 2,090,000 Total Viewers and 431,000 A25-54 viewers. A rebroadcast of “Meet the Press” on MSNBC added 567,000 and 208,000, respectively.

“Face the Nation” is based on the first half-hour only, as the full contiguous hour airs in just 64% of the country.
