TV Ratings: All Three Evening Newscasts See Viewer Growth for First Time in Nine Years
NBC and ABC are also up in the 25-54 demo, while CBS is flat.
The network evening newscasts are seeing viewer growths for the first time since the 2001-02 season.
NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams is up 2.7 percent; ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, 3.3 percent; and CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley is up 2.7 percent, as TV Newser points out.
They gained a combined 637,000 total viewers in the 2010-11 season, but lost 739,000 viewers in the 2009-2010 season -- so viewership is up, but not at the same level as the 2008-2009 season, when President Barack Obama was elected and inaugurated.
NBC is up 1.4 percent and CBS, 1.7 percent, in the 25-54 demo this season, as TV Newser also reports. World News was flat; Katie Couric anchored the first eight months of the season, with Pelley taking over in June.
In the 25-54 demo, Nightly News with Brian Williams has 2.6 million viewers (8.79 overall), World News with Diane Sawyer has 2.13 (7.81 overall) and CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley has 1.77 (5.87 overall).
Each of the newscasts have changed their executive producers this season as well.
