ABC World News Beat NBC Nightly News in Demo Last Week

For the first time in nearly a year, ABC World News with Diane Sawyer beat NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams in the 25-54 demo last week. ABC’s evening news program had 1.882M viewers in the demo while NBC had 1.870M.

ABC’s broadcast was also the only one of the three network news show that was up compared to the same week last year in the demo. Compared to 2013, ABC World News was up 1% in the demo while NBC Nightly News was down 18% and the CBS Evening News was down 10%.

The last time ABC World News beat NBC Nightly News, breaking what at the time was a nearly 5 year winning streak for NBC, was the week of July 22, 2013. In total viewers, NBC remained on top last week with 8.175M, while ABC was second with 7.378M and CBS was third with 6.366M.
