Wednesday brought good news for "Good Morning America."

The ABC show won the third day of this week's morning show ratings wars — its first win of the intensively hyped battle between Katie Couric and her former colleagues on "Today."

"GMA" drew 5.236 million total viewers, while "Today" was watched by 5.149 million viewers. That's a gap of 87,000 viewers.

With the win, "GMA" has an outside shot at beating "Today" in weekly ratings for the first time in 16 years. It would have to win both Thursday and Friday to accomplish the feat.

"Today" still won in the coveted A25-54 demo, though, drawing 2.25 million viewers to the 1.93 million of its ABC rival.
