“This Week” Walloped in Washington

Sure, NBC’s “Meet the Press” always wins the Washington ratings game.  And traditionally ABC’s “This Week” doesn’t do so well in its hometown…but this is ridiculous.  For last Sunday, June 12, 2011,  “MTP” pulled 129,000 Washington viewers while “This Week” drew a mere 7,000 sets of eyes in our nation’s capital.  The weak weekend was ABC’s worst DC viewership number since September of 2007, putting them in last place behind “FOX News Sundays” with 50,000 viewers and CBS’s “Face the Nation’s” 22,000 DC viewers. Ouch!

In total viewers, NBC also won the week with 2.912 million.  CBS pulled 2.597 million viewers for a strong second place finish over third place ABC’s 2.197 million, and FOX News Sunday’s 1.349 million.
