ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos won the first Sunday of the 2014-2015 season in both total viewers (3.391 million) and in the news demo (1.003 million). The Premiere Week win was This Week’s first in 12 years in overall audience and first in six years in the demo. The ABC program improved on previous Premiere Week Sundays for the third consecutive year in both metrics.

And, it marked the first time in seven years ABC’s Sunday’s Beltway show clocked a bigger Premiere Week crowd than CBS’ Face The Nation (3.326 million, 933,000 demo viewers). NBC’s Chuck-Todd hosted Meet The Press took the week off, to make way for Ryder Cup golf.

Fox News Sunday scored 1.692 million viewers and 383,000 news demo viewers.
