CBS News’ ‘Face the Nation’ Hits Viewership High in Bob Schieffer’s Final Season

21 May 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

David Letterman’s exit from latenight drew big ratings Wednesday night, but another longtime CBS figure — Bob Schieffer — is also going out on top.

With the 2014-15 television season in the books, the Schieffer-hosted “Face the Nation” is celebrating its largest audience since the 1987 advent of Nielsen’s people meters (3.42 million), up 5% from last year. By comparison, ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” averaged 2.85 million viewers, and NBC’s “Meet the Press” averaged 2.83 million. (“Face the Nation” benefits in comparisons to the other networks’ shows because only its first half-hour is included in averages; its two half-hours air back-to-back in just about 76% of the country.)

In the key news demo of adults 25-54, “Face the Nation” (0.8 rating for its first half-hour) finished ahead of “This Week” and “Meet the Press” (both at 0.7 for their hours).

Capping a journalism career spanning 52 years, Schieffer is retiring this summer from CBS News »

Chuck Todd Scores Best Ratings Since Taking Over ‘Meet the Press’

23 January 2015 12:55 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

NBC host draws over 3 million total viewers and 927,000 in the 25-54 demo on Jan. 18

The media pundits who declared Chuck Todd the wrong choice after he struggled out of the gate on NBC’s “Meet the Press” might have to rewrite themselves.

Todd drew his highest-rated show on Jan. 18, drawing 3.051 million total viewers and 927,000 25-54 demo viewers. It’s the highest-rating for Todd’s “Meet the Press” tenure, which started in September. Overall, his performance this past Sunday was the highest rating for “Meet the Press” in 10 months, dating back to David Gregory’s embattled last few months as moderator. »
