Please note, that because of the holidays, the networks only had national news broadcasts three days last week:

NBC ABC CBS
Total Viewers: 9,370,000 8,560,000 6,160,000
A25-54: 2,840,000 2,270,000 1,830,000

Though only for three days, that's not different from the trend for the season where the NBC Nightly News leads ABC's World News and CBS Evening News.

Sawyer's first broadcast on averaged 8.97 million, Charles Gibson's last broadcast as anchor for "World News" averaged 8.96 million.
