Morning Show Ratings: Week of August 5

“Good Morning America” wins another week in the morning, and by its largest margins over NBC’s “Today” in more than five months.

Compared to the same week last year the ABC morning program showed the most growth in the morning: up +20% in total viewers and up +16% in A25-54 viewers. “CBS This Morning” also showed growth: +18% / +8%. “Today” was down significantly year-over-year: -28% / -32%. This time last year was the final week of the London Summer Games. Olympics coverage gives NBC News programs a boost every two years.

“GMA” has a 51-week winning streak among total viewers which began just as the “Today” crew returned from London. Next week, if it holds, “GMA” will experience a full year at No. 1, a streak not seen in more than 21 years.

The averages for the week of August 5:

  • Total Viewers: ABC: 5.225M / NBC: 4.260M / CBS: 2.606M
  • A25-54 viewers: ABC: 1.868M / NBC: 1.643M / CBS: 874K

Charlie Rose and Norah O’Donnell Go ‘Dufnering’ With Jason Dufner

First, there was “Tebowing,” and correspondents did it in the middle of covering hurricanes. Then there was “Kaepernicking,” and everyone was like “Ok, that’s probably enough,” until the First Lady did it.

Now, we have “Dufnering,” inspired by PGA champ Jason Dufner, who was spotted sitting slack against a wall, staring blankly into the ether. It became a meme, and now everyone is doing it. Even “CBS This Morning” co-anchors Charlie Rose and Norah O’Donnell, who did it with the man himself after he was interviewed on the program.

Charlie Rose To Appear In ‘Breaking Bad’

“CBS This Morning” co-anchor Charlie Rose has booked a special guest appearance in an unlikely place: on AMC’s critically acclaimed drama “Breaking Bad.”

At a Q&A with “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City, Rose let the news slip, according to a HuffPost reporter in attendance.

Gilligan lightly reprimanded Rose for the “spoiler.” The talk show host later apologized, but only after confirming that “[his] check would still be in the mail.”

As for who Rose will play in the drama about a schoolteacher turned meth dealer: “He could be anyone,” Gilligan told HuffPost.

Morning Show Ratings: Week of July 8

For the second time in three weeks, the “Today” show wins in the ad-friendly A25-54 demo while “Good Morning America” remains No. 1 in total viewers.

“Today” topped “GMA” by 44,000 viewers in the demo; its biggest advantage since the week of January 14.

The averages for the week of July 8, 2013:

  • Total Viewers: ABC: 4.885M / NBC: 4.359M / CBS: 2.678M

Will Bill O’Reilly Ever Run For Political Office?

Bill O’Reilly stopped by “CBS This Morning” today to promote his latest book, “Keep it Pithy,” in an interview with Charlie Rose and Norah O’Donnell. The Fox News host talked gay marriage and immigration, as well as whether a run for political office may be in his future.

“Look, here’s the deal: I’m in a unique position in television. I’m a watchdog. I watch everybody. And there’s nobody else really doing that on a national level … we’ve carved out a unique place,” O’Reilly said. “Why do I want to give that all up and be a phony running around begging for money?”

Anthony Mason, Gayle King And Norah O’Donnell Get Down To Madonna

Today was “CBS This Morning”‘s 400th edition. The George Zimmerman trial, the Edward Snowden situation and the San Francisco plane crash were the top stories.

After the show, however, co-anchors Gayle King, Anthony Mason and Norah O’Donnell let loose. What better way to commemorate 400 episodes then to have an impromptu dance party in the studio to Madonna’s “Lucky Star”?

This is what happens when Charlie Rose is out of town. The dance even made it into today’s “Eye Closer.” WATCH:

Moguls, Journalists Descend On Sun Valley For Media/Technology Confab

This week, the world’s media, entertainment and technology moguls are converging on Sun Valley, Idaho for the annual Allen & Company shindig. What happens in Sun Valley usually stays in Sun Valley, but according to a number of reporters in attendance, we can glean a few things.

For starters, CBS News anchor Charlie Rose, NBC News’ Tom Brokaw and CNN’s Erin Burnett are all attending, with Rose and Brokaw scheduled to moderate (secret) panels. CNBC’s Julia Boorstin, FBN’s Dennis Kneale and Bloomberg TV’s Jon Erlichman are getting as close as they can to cover the action for their networks.

In terms of moguls, all the usual suspects are there: 21st Century Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch, along with sons Lachlan Murdoch and James Murdoch (above), Disney’s Bob Iger, ESPN’s John Skipper, Comcast’s Brian Roberts, CBS’ Les Moonves, Time Warner’s Jeff Bewkes, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Apple CEO Tim Cook and IAC’s Barry Diller among many, many others.

‘Good Morning America’ Sees Biggest Morning Lead in 21 Years

ABC’s “Good Morning America” finishes the second quarter of 2013 as the most-watched morning show, winning its fourth consecutive quarter — a feat not accomplished since 1993-1994. Not to be outdone, “CBS This Morning” also had a big Q2, its best — and the closest competitively to NBC’s “Today” — since 1994.

“GMA” outranked “Today” by +789,000 viewers — the largest quarterly gap in more than 21 years. “GMA” also won among the A25-54 demo with a +95,000 viewer lead on “Today.”

“GMA” was up versus the year-earlier quarter: +11% in viewers and +5% in the demo. CBS was also up 5% in the demo and up +19% in viewers, while “Today” was down -6% in viewers and down -11% in the demo.

The averages for Q2, 2013:

  • Total Viewers: ABC: 5.501M / NBC: 4.712M / CBS: 2.895M
  • A25-54 viewers: ABC: 2.017M / NBC: 1.922M / CBS: 1.002M

NBCUniversal Hit By Intern Lawsuit, As Floodgates Open

A proposed class-action lawsuit from former interns for MSNBC and “Saturday Night Live” could kickstart a new round of lawsuits against the big media conglomerates.

THR’s Eriq Gardner has the details of the NBCUniversal lawsuit.

After a judge ruled that former interns for Fox Searchlight could sue for unpaid wages during their internships, lawsuits began to spring up against companies like Gawker and Conde nast.

Late last year, the production company owned by Charlie Rose agreed to pay $250,000 to former interns who sued alleging that they were not paid for their work.

While many media companies now pay their interns at least minimum wage, all of them at one point had unpaid interns roaming their halls. Don’t be surprised if the other big media companies, including 21st Century Fox, Disney, CBS and Turner Broadcasting, are also facing lawsuits from former interns in the months ahead.
