NBC's evening news wins again

September 24, 2008|Matea Gold

"NBC Nightly News" ended the 2007-08 television season as the most-watched network evening newscast for the 12th year in a row, expanding its lead over ABC's second-place "World News With Charles Gibson," which had come close to matching its viewership the year before.

NBC's Brian Williams-anchored news averaged 8.52 million viewers, up 1%, the only broadcast to gain audience since last season, according to figures released Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. "World News" drew 8.18 million viewers, down 2%, while "CBS Evening News With Katie Couric" followed with 6.16 million, a drop of almost 9%.
