Diane Sawyer and World News pulled out a demo ratings last week over NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams.
But it wasn't by much.
In the 25-to-54 age group, Sawyer drew 1.882 million viewers to Williams' 1.870 million. Yes, only 12,000 viewers separated the two 6:30 p.m. newscasts.
The CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley lagged behind at 1.5 million viewers in the age group.
Although Pelley is in last place he wants a raise that more than doubles his salary.
NBC still won the ratings in total viewers. Williams averaged 8.2 million viewers to Sawyer's 7.4 million and Pelley's 6.4 million.
