‘GMA’ beat ‘Today’? Not in Washington

You know that week “Good Morning America” beat “Today”?

It’s like it never happened, in Washington.

In our fair city, even a Matt Lauer-less “Today” show (he was on vacation) logged 107,000 viewers on WRC (aka NBC4), while “Good Morning America” averaged 62,000 on WJLA (aka ABC7).

Nationally, “GMA” beat “Today” last week, ending “Today’s” more than 16-year record as the weekly ratings frontrunner, when “GMA” regular Robin Roberts returned to work (Katie Couric had guest-anchored the previous week) and Matt took a vacation from ‘Today." “GMA” averaged about 31,000 more viewers than did “Today.”
