News Ratings: Week Ending June 6, 2021

Below are the weekly average ratings for the evening news telecasts on the three major broadcast networks: ABC (World News Tonight), CBS (CBS Evening News), and NBC (NBC Nightly News), as well as the daily ratings for six hours of evening/night ratings (6pm-12am) on the three major cable news networks: CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC. There are three charts below, the first includes total viewership (presented in thousands), the second includes viewership among adults 25-54 (the news demographic), and the final chart includes 18-49 ratings for the cable programs. I don't have 18-49 data for the broadcast news programs. Additionally, data only goes from Monday-Friday as I do not track weekend news ratings. Note: broadcast evening news ratings exclude Monday because of Memorial Day and CBS's average also excludes Friday.
