NEW YORK — For the first time in nearly three years, NBC's "Today" show has tied the perennial leader, ABC's "Good Morning America," in the hotly competitive morning news-and-information race, according to figures released Thursday by the A.C. Nielsen Co.

The measured week, Jan. 14-18, also marked Phyllis George's start as co-anchor of the "CBS Morning News."

"Today" had a 5.3 rating and a 22 share, tying "Good Morning America" for the first time since the week of Feb. 1, 1982. The "CBS Morning News," which introduced George, a new set and more specialized segments on Jan. 14, had a 3.9 rating and a 16 share.
