No Bump in Audience As Stephanopoulos Joins 'GMA'

Tuesday, 15 Dec 2009 08:45 PM


It looks like George Stephanopoulos (stehf-uh-NAHP'-uh-luhs) didn't get a very hearty welcome from viewers as the new co-anchor of ABC's "Good Morning America."

Preliminary numbers from Nielsen Co. show that his first day on "Good Morning America" on Monday had questionable impact on the audience size. NBC's "Today" beat "Good Morning America" by 1.3 million viewers, widening its advantage from last week's average margin of 1.1 million viewers.

Nielsen says Monday's audience for "Today" was 5.9 million viewers, while "GMA" had 4.6 million viewers.

Earlier this month, "Today" marked 14 years of winning each week in the ratings.

Stephanopoulos, taking over from Diane Sawyer at the "GMA" anchor desk, is partnered with Robin Roberts.
