By Rebecca Stropoli -- Broadcasting & Cable, 3/27/2007 11:56:00 AM
ABC's World News With Charles Gibson and NBC's Nightly News With Brian Williams tied in the key news demo for the week of March 19, each earning a 2.0 rating/8 share in adults 25-54, according to Nielsen Media Research.
ABC won in the total-viewers category, with 8,350,000. Its household rating was a 5.9/12. NBC had 8,090,000 total viewers and a 5.6/12 household rating.
CBS' Evening News With Katie Couric trailed with a 1.9/7 in the key demo, 6,680,000 total viewers and a 4.8/10 in households. These numbers are based on a three-day average (Monday-Wednesday) because of NCAA basketball airings on Thursday and Friday.
Season-to-date, Nightly News is No. 1 in the key demo, averaging a 2.4 rating, 4% more than ABC's 2.3 rating and 20% more than CBS' 2.0 rating.
i will not be watching abc any longer. Having someone as ignorant & disgusting as Rosie O Donnell on your channel tells me ABC is desperate. I have not found anyone in the real world that likes her or any thing she stands for or has to say. The view is also not what the average woman in this country likes. Most of us are smarter than that. Rosie & her buddies are idiots!

Does anyone question why NBC's Evening News has NO minorities in the key, full-time lineup? Yes, they have guests but no full time minorities.
