Nielsen Media Research agreed to recount network news ratings from last week
after reporting Tuesday that ABC’s “World News” had its smallest-ever
audience, the Associated Press says.
The initial ratings showed ABC’s newscast with just 6.2 million viewers for
the week, its lowest figure since the 1987 introduction of peoplemeters. The
numbers were particularly low on Friday evening, night of the digital
transition. Nielsen will reissue the ratings today. [Wed.]
