Good Morning America Reigns Supreme In Ratings; Today's Margin Of Defeat Worst In Twenty Years

| Filed under: TV NewsBusiness Blitz

good morning america trumps today ratings historic rate 21 years

It's official — there's a new king in morning news!!!

For only the second time in nearly two decades, Good Morning America tallied higher viewership numbers this quarter than NBC's flailing competitor, Today.

Even more impressive? The ABC program's margin of victory!!!

Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos helped GMA secure outstanding ratings in the 25-54 news demographic, and their show posted the biggest advantage over Today in total-viewership numbers in 21 years!!!

While this is great news for all the fine folks at ABC, the suits over at NBC must be going ballistic because this is the second quarter in a row GMA took home the title!

So why do U think Matt Lauer's ship is sinking so swiftly?

Do viewers better connect with GMA's anchors, guests, and features?!

Or is this continued fallout from the disastrous Ann Curry dismissal and Olympics debacle?

    I like GMA when I watch it, good crew and always look like they are having fun.

    GMA is just a better show than Today, which is really too long to watch. You can tell the GMA anchors are all friends and are having a good time on set. And the segments are better.

    It should be Katie Couric and Carson Daly. He temporarily co anchored last week and was great until his wife insulted Al caused he touched the food…so leave the wife at home but Carson and Katy on Today would be awesome. Sorry Matt.

    I liked GMA before Matt Lauer pulled that crap on Ann Curry. I am positive he had something to do with it, and I thought it was as low as a person can go.
    I am hoping Ann goes on to bigger and better things. I love GMA.

    Re: Alien – Katie's still under contract with Disney-ABC for her syndicated talk show, which is taped in the old One Life To Live soap studios in New York City. Unless ABC gives her a partial release on her contract, she won't be re-joining the Today Show.
