"NBC Nightly News" continued its long-running ratings streak in the fourth quarter of 2010, beating its rivals at ABC and CBS by substantial margins.

The Brian Williams-hosted program drew 8.72 million viewers in the fourth quarter. That's compared to 7.56 million viewers for ABC's "World News" and 5.79 million for the "CBS Evening News." Those are the widest gaps between NBC and its rivals since late 2004. In addition, NBC came first in the coveted A25-54 demographic.
