This morning Keith Kelly drilled down into Audit Bureau of Circulation numbers for the celebrity weeklies from the first half of the year. People is still the country’s widest-circulating weekly by a nose (32,000 copies), and In Touch has been making serious gains on second-place Us Weekly. The title was regularly moving well over 1 million copies during Janice Min’s tenure, and circulation now is closer to 800,000.
The May 10 issue of People — with Sandra Bullock and her recently adopted baby on the cover — sold 2,225,000 copies off the newsstand. ABC will release complete set of ciruclation data from the first half of the year on August 9.
