ABC Bests NBC for Evening News Viewers: First Time in More Than Five Years

by | Apr 13, 2015

NBC lost its lead in evening news viewership for the first time in more than five years, marking a setback for the network while Brian Williams remains off the air, reports Bloomberg.com.

ABC’s “World News Tonight with David Muir” drew 8 million viewers a night on average for the week of March 30, beating the “NBC Nightly News” by 84,000, according to preliminary Nielsen data from the networks. It marks the first week that “NBC Nightly News” has lost in total viewers since September 2009, continued the report.

The results are a sign that ABC has capitalized on Williams’s suspension to catch up. The perennial No. 2, ABC’s “World News Tonight” has been closing in on NBC over the past year, stated Bloomberg.com.
