ABC’s David Muir-anchored evening newscast led the genre’s ratings race for a second consecutive week in both overall audience (8.813 million viewers ) and in the news demographic (1.5 rating).
CBS’s newscast aired with low coverage on Thu and Fri due to NCAA Basketball, and on those nights it was renamed CBS-Evening-Nws, so it’s weekly ratings are based on Monday through Wednesday stats.
Season to date, World News Tonight is delivering largest viewership in 13 years and ranks No. 1 in overall audience, besting NBC’s newscast by its biggest edge (459K) in 22 years . NBC continues to dominate in the news demo in a very tight race.
