Viewer crown returned to NBC Nightly News

That NBC Nightly News winning streak broken by ABC World News the week of September 29? Not so broken. Revised Nielsen data, addressing a software glitch, has NBC finishing first for the week with 8.283 million total viewers versus ABC’s 8.113 million. NBC has now been tops in viewers for 265 consecutive weeks. ABC does retain bragging rights in the news demo, 2.065 million to 1.942 million. “World News Tonight is in the tightest evening news race in several years and we’re honored the viewers are responding,” said ABC.
