‘GMA’ runs win streak to 10 weeks
October 26, 2012
“Good Morning America” continues to lengthen its winning streak, improving to 10 straight weeks at No. 1 among the morning news shows in total viewers, its longest streak in almost 19 years.
ABC’s show averaged 4.84 million total viewers and 2.01 million adults 25-54 for the week ended Oct. 21, according to Nielsen, up 5 percent week to week in the demo for its best performance on that measure since May.
It has won eight straight weeks in the demo.
Rival “Today,” whose long winning streak was broken in April, drew 4.45 million total viewers and 1.795 25-54s for the week.
“CBS This Morning” averaged 2.52 million total viewers, up 3 percent versus the same week last year, though it was down 7 percent in 25-54s to 966,000.
Season to date “GMA” has a lead of 605,000 in total viewers over “Today,” its biggest advantage in 21 years.
