‘Meet the Press’ Minus David Gregory Ratings: Total Viewers Up, Demo Barely Down

19 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Meet the Press” went on without David Gregory on Sunday, and to be honest, the program didn't miss a beat — at least not on the Nielsen sheets. Of course, all national news shows have a secret weapon in the form of ongoing Ferguson, Mo. coverage, which offers gains or helps mask losses. While the key 25-54 demo viewers decreased by two percent with Andrea Mitchell filling in on Sunday's “Meet the Press,” total viewers increased by 10 percent. ”Meet the Press” had 2.661 million viewers, 735,000 in the demo, landing in third place — not unusual for the program.

Politico Playbook reported on Thursday that Gregory has been working with publisher Simon & Schuster since 2011, and the book will likely hit shelves in 2015. Also read: ‘Meet the Press’ Pays Tribute to Ousted Moderator David Gregory “We weren't planning to announce the book until we'd set the publication date, which will be sometime in 2015, but since Playbook asked, we're answering now,” Jonathan Karp, the publisher's president, said in a statement. “Let me emphasize that this book has always been intended. »

'Meet the Press' pays tribute to David Gregory

Meet the Press honored David Gregory, the news program’s longtime host who suddenly departed the show this week, on Sunday’s episode with a brief video tribute.

Andrea Mitchell, who was filling in for Gregory, ended the hour by looking back at Gregory’s career, ranging from his time moderating a Gop debate in 2012 to his 2010 interview with General David Petraeus. “Meet the Press makes a lot of history,” Mitchell said. “And a great deal of it was with David at the helm since he started in December 2008.”

What the Hatred of David Gregory Says About the Media, and Us

14 August 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | Mediaite - TV | See recent Mediaite - TV news »

The outsized, specified, and personal hatred of Gregory long ago detached from the reality of the man. Very few of the people howling yesterday actually dislike Gregory's weekly performance on Meet the Press on its merits, or, given the show's winnowing ratings, even watch it enough to dislike it. They dislike a refraction of it, one filtered through their ideological preconceptions »

David Gregory Wasn’t the Real Problem with NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’

14 August 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

To the surprise of no one, Chuck Todd was tapped Thursday to replace David Gregory in the anchor chair at NBC’s struggling “Meet the Press.” Rumors of his demise had been rampant for so long that his removal was a foregone conclusion.

Even Gregory’s harshest critics should have some sympathy for the guy. He had some bumps in the road but for the most part proved himself just as tough an interviewer as his peerless predecessor, Tim Russert. Perhaps Russert was really the problem here: When a legend casts a shadow that long, no one underneath it really has a shot at shining through.

NBC threw out the baby instead of the bathwater that is the show’s real problem: its format. Terrific an interviewer as Gregory is, there was too much airtime devoted to overheated, predictable rhetoric from both sides of the aisle. What few light tweaks »
