Nightline Ratings Rise

ABC's Nightline continues to grow into its new multiple-anchor format.

In this case, the growth is in the Nielsen ratings. For the week ended July 24, according to the network, the show was up 13% in its target 25-54 demo to a 1.3 rating (about 1.6 million viewers) vs. the same week last year. It is also up 13% in total viewers to 3.3 million over the same period.
