As FTVLive predicted, Chuck Todd's inaugural show of "Meet The Press" was at the top of the ratings.
MTP came in first in both total viewers and the 25-to-54 demo, according to Nielsen.
Todd kicked off the first show with much buzz and the President of the United States, as one network suit said to FTVLive, "if he didn't win this week, he never was going to."
Either way, NBC suits have to be happy that at least for the moment, beltway boy Todd has given the struggling morning show a lift.
Some David Gregory just ordered another drink.
