Meet The Press Gets Worst Ratings In 18 Years

Meet The Press remained the top Sunday morning public affairs show last week, as usual.

But it was the lowest total viewer average for the NBC program since July 5, 1992. And the rest of the Sunday shows are coming close to its number one spot.

NBC average 2,420,000 total viewers, followed by CBS’ Face The Nation at #2 with 2,280,000, ABC’s This Week with 1,950,000. and FOX News Sunday with 980,000.

In the A25-54 demographic, NBC had 770,000, ABC was #2 with 620,000, CBS had 610,000 and FOX 380,000

David Gregory‘s Meet The Press has remained largely the top Sunday show as it has been for years. But there have been periodic victories by other programs who took the lead certain weeks. If 18-year lows continue, it could open the door for another show, whether ABC or CBS, to take the lead.

> Update: While the ratings tightened up last week, for most of September MTP held a comfortable lead over the competition, up more than 700,000 total viewers.
