In November, It's Williams by a Nose

Perhaps boosted by its anchors appearance on Saturday Night Live, NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams edged out ABC’s World News with Charlie Gibson by just 100,000 viewers for the title of November’s most-watched network news program.  

But, The Times notes, : “[W]ithin the most recent results are trends that are heartening to ABC, and of much concern to NBC. When compared with last November, Mr. Williams’s overall audience has shrunk by more than 300,000 viewers; Mr. Gibson’s increased over the same period by nearly 200,000.

CBS and Katie Couric, of course, are not even in the picture.
