CBS’ “Face the Nation” was tops in both ratings measurements on November 24, besting ABC’s “This Week” by +510,000 total viewers and +254,000 A25-54 viewers. “Meet the Press” was preempted for NBC’s coverage of Formula 1 racing.

Compared to the same week last year, “Face the Nation,” “This Week” and “Fox News Sunday” are all up. ABC is up the most, +48% in total viewers and +30% in the A25-54 demographic. Univision’s “Al Punto” was flat in total viewers and down -19% in the demo.

Cable replays of “Fox News Sunday” averaged a combined 2,194,000 total viewers and 462,000 A25-54 viewers.
