Weekend Evening News Ratings: Q2 2012

Earlier this week, we gave you ratings for the evening newscasts during the second quarter of 2012. So how did the weekend evening newscasts stack up?

For the just-concluded quarter, the weekend evening newscasts mirror their weekday counterparts: “NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt” on top, followed by “ABC World News with David Muir” and “CBS Evening News” (anchored by Jim Axelrod on Saturdays and Jeff Glor on Sundays).

The Sunday edition of “World News” delivered its largest overall second-quarter audience in nine years (since Q2 2003). Muir’s Sunday broadcast also slashed its year-ago gaps with “Nightly” by double-digits: -67% in Total Viewers and -54% in the A25-54 demographic.
