In case you were wondering:
In the first week of his six-month suspension (Feb. 9-13), the Lester Holt-anchored NBC broadcast posted a victory among total viewers, with an average 9.43 million, and adults 25-54. The demo race was a much tighter race. Despite leading ABC News by 400,000 total viewers, it only just topped it in the key demo: 2.292 million over 2.242 million.
CBS remained in third place, averaging 7.628 million viewers and 1.786 million adults 25-54.
Brian Williams has been replaced and the numbers on his broadcast, such as they are, have remained the same. The audience for the evening news has shrunk down to practically nothing but NBC persists with the delusional idea of putting Williams back on the air? I think that has come to pass.
Williams would make a hell of a game show host.
