Meet the Press with Tim Russert, which led the pack with a 3.3.
CBS' Face the Nation hit a 1.7, ABC's This Week with George
Stephanopolous a 1.5 and Fox News Sunday a 1.0.
The Chris Matthews Show has been renewed for a second season on NBC's
owned-and-operated stations, as well as on stations from the Hearst-Argyle Television Inc.,
Gannett Co. Inc., E.W. Scripps Co., Belo Corp., Raycom Media, Young Broadcasting Inc. and other major groups, bringing
