NBC News still tops Nielsen ratings
After one year, the transition from Tom Brokaw to Brian Williams doesn't appear to have hurt NBC Nightly News at all, according to the Nielsen ratings. According to Hollywood Reporter, NBC Nightly News averaged 9.8 million viewers in the fourth quarter, while ABC had 8.6 million and CBS 7.5 million. Williams, of course, got his start at KOAM.
