Louder ratings for CBS’ ‘The Talk’

ABC's 'GMA' also on the upswing this fall

It’s big news these days when any program — in any daypart — is showing ratings gains, so the folks at CBS have reason to cheer nice improvement this fall for “The Talk.”

Now in its third season, the Julie Chen-fronted daytime chatfest is averaging 2.3 million viewers, up 21% from the 1.9 million at this point last fall. It’s also up in virtually all key female demo categories.

Last week, “The Talk’s” averages of 2.25 million total viewers and a 0.9/6 in women 25-54 were up by double-digits vs. last year.

“The Talk” is co-hosted by Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler. John Redmann and Sara Gilbert serve as exec producers.

Also on a ratings upswing this fall is ABC News’ “Good Morning America,” which won the morning news race again last week. Its 4.93 million viewers (up 5% from last year) put it comfortably ahead of NBC’s “Today” (4.29 million, down 19%) and CBS’ “This Morning” (2.53 million, down 2%). “GMA” bested “Today” on all five days, repeating its performance during premiere week.

“GMA” also led in adults 25-54 (1.87 million to 1.71 million for “Today), with the ABC show up a bit and the NBC show down sharply.

Through two weeks, this is ABC’s best position relative to NBC in the morning news race in 21 years.
