KABC remains dominant in L.A. local news

KCBS cuts gap at 11 p.m., KTLA second at 6 a.m.

The latenight ratings race among local Los Angeles newscasts is tightening.

During the November sweep, KABC’s “Eyewitness News” led with an average audience per telecast of 274,000, but that’s just 20,000 more than KCBS. It’s the closest KCBS has been to KABC at 11 p.m. since 2007.

Underscoring how competitive the half-hour is, KNBC is third at 205,000, just 70,000 below KABC.

In the 6 a.m. hour, when many viewers are watching local news for traffic and weather for the day ahead, KABC is in front with 195,000 viewers. KTLA is second at 160,000, with Fox11 News at 76,000.

KCBS has much ground to make up in the mornings, however, with only 57,000 tuning in. Channel is bested by all, including KNBC with 65,000.

At 5 p.m., when KCBS, KNBC and KABC all air local news, KABC is best with 283,000. That makes it the most-watched Los Angeles newscast of any channel for any time period during the day.

Second at 5 o’clock is KNBC (145,00), followed by KCBS with 129,000.
