News Ratings: Week Ending December 19, 2021

Below are the 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 four cable news networks: CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, and NewsNation. The chart below has four columns of data: the first includes 18-49 ratings, the second and third include viewership among adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 (presented in thousands), and the final column includes total viewership (also in thousands),  Data only goes from Monday-Friday as I do not track weekend news ratings.

Note: since I did not receive the full weekly cable report for this week, the cable chart is composed of data from ShowBuzzDaily and Mediaite. With this, 18-49 data is not available in viewership form this week (only in ratings) and no 18-49 data is available for NewsNation programs.
