ABC’s “Good Morning America” was again the ratings winner in the just completed 2013-14 television season, which saw all three morning programs gain viewers.

The Alphabet program, which had to endure some personnel changes as weatherman Sam Champion and news reader Josh Elliott ankled, prevailed in the ratings for a second straight year, averaging 5.57 million viewers from Sept. 23, 2013-Sept. 21, 2014, according to Nielsen. It was up 5% vs. the previous season, keeping it comfortably ahead of NBC’s “Today” (4.871 million viewers, up 9%) and “CBS This Morning” (3.025 million, up 9%).

ABC drew its largest overall audience in 22 years, and for CBS this marked its largest morning-show audience in 20 years.

In the key news demo of adults 25-54, ABC opened up a little more room on “Today,” with the former rising 7% to 2.117 million (an 8-year high) and the latter gaining 4% to averaged 1.966 million. Third-place “CBS This Morning” dipped 3% (973,000 vs. 998,000).

Although, news programs are generally tracked by the 25-54 demo, it’s interesting to note that “Today” remains the timeslot leader among adults 18-49, a category it has won for 22 consecutive seasons.
