Sunday Show Ratings: Mar. 7

sunday-shows4NBC’s “Meet the Press” was the most watched Sunday show this week, though all four programs were down in total viewers from the previous week. CBS’ “Face the Nation” remained #2 and made it nine out of the last ten weeks that it has topped ABC’s “This Week.” “MTP” moved back into first in the A25-54 demo.

As ABC continues to rotate anchors, contributor and political analyst Matt Dowd hosted “This Week,” his first time anchoring any broadcast.

“Fox News Sunday” drew an additional 2.09M total viewers (427,000 demo) via cable replays. Rebroadcasts of “MTP” drew an additional 813,000 total viewers.

(Note: While Cablevision came to some understanding in it’s negotiations with ABC in time for the Oscar’s broadcast, “This Week” wasn’t as lucky. New York’s WABC was not available in around 2.9 million homes on Sunday morning.)

Network Program Total Viewers A25-54
NBC “Meet the Press” 3.12M 930K
CBS “Face the Nation” 2.68M 740K
ABC “This Week” 2.38M 680K
FOX “Fox News Sunday” 1.25M 490K

Times Square Transformed For ABC Election Night

After stopping by the CNN viewing party in Duffy Square we headed a few blocks south to ABC’s Times Square studios. As we walked in, GMA Weekend anchor Bill Weir was heading outside to begin live shots for the network’s coverage. On the second floor studio, Charles Gibson was just beginning World News, which lead right in to ABC’s coverage for the night.

We stopped in the green room where ABC News president David Westin was watching coverage along with correspondents Dr. Timothy Johnson, Betsy Stark and Brian Ross. Dr. Johnson, physician first, told us that he’d checked earlier in the day and there is a defibrillator in the studio. “A lot of adrenaline rushing tonight,” he said. Westin was pleased with the final story on World News, which featured ABC’s two off-air reporters following the Obama and McCain campaigns.

In a second green room, on-air guests waited for their turns on air, and, in the meantime, enjoyed the catering, as we discovered in the clip below.

Before we departed we ran into Good Morning America senior EP Jim Murphy who came to watch the coverage, so he knows what to expect first thing in the morning.
