GMA racked up some of its best audiences numbers in more than 20 years last week, beating out the Today Show and Early Show with its coverage of the Royal Wedding from London.
Good Morning America is enjoying somewhat of a golden season thanks in part to an Emmy award winning team and popular content such as the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
In the ratings period of April 25th â€“ April 29th, GMA attracted its largest weekly audience in more than six years and its best demo performance in more than two years.
The royal wedding coverage televised on Friday marks the most watched morning telecast in more than 20 years since at least September 1991, when Neilsonâ€™s electronic database was introduced. It is also the third highest overall in the adult news demo since at least 1991 and the strongest Friday 25-54 ratings in the same period.
Fridayâ€™s coverage attracted an impressive audience of 8.695 million total viewers and 3.296 million in adult viewers between the ages of 25-54 years old.
It seems that GMA is determined to get ahead in the ratings race this season. To date GMA is up the most among the network morning news programs in terms of total viewers (+8%) compared to its year-ago average. To put it in perspective â€“ NBCâ€™s Today is down -1% and the Early Show is up 1%.
GMA is gleefully drawing its largest audiences in more than three years. The crack team at the helm with anchors Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Sam Champion and Josh Elliot have their eyes on the prize this season. Executive producers James Goldston and Tom Cibrowski are squaring up for a record season from start to finish.
Good Morning America airs Monday to Friday 7am and 9am ET on ABC.
