Meet The Press Draws Most Viewers Since April On Maddow's Debut Appearance


"Meet the Press" had its highest total viewer delivery since April this past Sunday, averaging 3,359,000 total viewers for David Gregory's most convincing victory in months.

ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" averaged 2,447,000 total viewers for a distant second place, while CBS' "Face the Nation" with Bob Schieffer averaged 2,470,000 total viewers and FOX's "FOX News Sunday" averaged 1,207,000 total viewers.

Sunday's "Meet the Press" featured Rachel Maddow's debut on the show; she appeared with former House Majority Leader Rep. Dick Armey (R-TX), Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), and former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) for an in-depth look at the health care debate.

"Meet the Press" hasn't seen an audience as large as Sunday's since April 19, when it featured Larry Summers and averaged 3,439,000 total viewers.

Perhaps more importantly, though, it hasn't had as decisive a victory over its chief competitors — ABC's "This Week," which recently topped it for the first time since 1999, and CBS' "Face the Nation" — since the spring.

Sunday's "Meet the Press" topped "This Week" by 37% (912,000 viewers), Gregory's strongest victory over Stephanopoulos since March 22; and it beat "Face the Nation" by 36% (889,000 viewers), Gregory's strongest victory over Schieffer since May 17.

Sunday's "Meet the Press" topped "This Week" by 37% (912,000 viewers), Gregory's Rachel's strongest victory over Stephanopoulos since March 22; and it beat "Face the Nation" by 36% (889,000 viewers),  Gregory's Rachel's strongest victory over Schieffer since May 17.

Okay, fixed that.  Because is there ANYONE who can come up with a better reason why the MTP ratings were so astronomically high?  Cause I know Tom Coburn's milkshake brings all the viewers to the yard.  Was there someone even named Gregory on Meet The Press this Sunday?   Oh yeah! I think it was that cardboard cutout in a tie that seemed to be reading softball questions off of a script that was sitting on the other side of Rachel.
