"Meet the Press" just hit a twenty-year low for viewers in the key 25-54 demographic.
The NBC News program — which is typically the top Sunday public affairs show — drew 2.46 million total viewers and 687,000 viewers ages 25-54 on Sunday, according to Nielsen. The demo audience was its smallest for a regular telecast since July 1992.
Meanwhile, ABC News' “This Week” took the top spot in the demo, with 700,000 viewers. It was the first time the show beat "Meet the Press" and CBS News' "Face the Nation" in two years.
"Meet the Press" has seen its competitive lead slip in recent years. On the bright side for NBC News though, the show still beat its rivals in total viewers on Sunday.
