Oct 2, 2015  •  Post A Comment

ABC News announced that one of its shows was No. 1 in the key news demo for the opening week of the season, something it hadn’t done in seven years. The show is “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” which delivered 868,000 viewers in the 25-54 demo with its Sunday, Sept. 27, broadcast.

The show placed third in total viewers behind NBC’s “Meet the Press” and CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

The numbers are based on Nielsen Media Research Live+Same Day data.

The demo win for “This Week” “marked the first time in 7 years to rank No. 1 in Adults 25-54 during the opening week of the season — since the 2008-09 season,” ABC News reported. “In addition, ‘This Week’ has ranked No. 1 in Adults 25-54 for the 5th consecutive week.”

The ABC program scored its largest season premiere margin of victory over CBS’s “Face the Nation” in eight years, topping the CBS show’s 705,000 total in adults 25-54 by 163,000. “This Week” also outperformed NBC’s “Meet the Press” (833,000) by 35,000 in the news demo, topping the NBC program in the first telecast of the season for the first time in seven years.

Here are the numbers for the newsmaker shows on Sunday, Sept. 27, 2015, with total viewers followed by viewers in the 25-54 demo and the demo rating:

ABC “This Week”: 2,735,000 total viewers; 868,000/0.7 in 25-54
