ABC ‘This Week’ Scratches In D.C. For Second Week In a Row, Fox Takes Number 1

For the first time since NBC “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd took the helm of the flagship program, “Fox News Sunday” beat them in the Washington, D.C. demo. “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace delivered 12,000 viewers in the demo (ages 25-54) while “Meet the Press” reeled in 9,000. The last time FNS beat MTP was in late July when then-host David Gregory was hosting one of his final programs.

But far worse: ABC’s “This Week” got a big fat zero for the second consecutive week.

Last week, ABC got an actual “o” in the Nielsen rating charts. This week they were reduced to a mere symbol mark: “>>.”

Not to blame Martha Raddatz or anything, but for the last two weeks she has filled in for George Stephanopoulos.
