Chuck Todd’s first week hosting NBC’s “Meet the Press” earned the show a ratings win, reports TVNewser.
The program won both in total viewers and in the key news demo of viewers 25-54, the piece notes. It averaged 2.977 million total viewers, including 804,000 in the 25-54 demographic.
That marks the first win for the show in either viewers or the demographic since February, the report adds. Todd interviewed President Barack Obama on Sunday’s episode.
“We couldn’t be more proud of Chuck’s first show and are so appreciative of the viewers that turned to ‘Meet the Press’ this Sunday,” an NBC representative told the publication. “At the same time, we know that one week does not equal a trend and expanding our regular audience will take a slow build week to week.”
