NBC’s venerable “Meet the Press” show has fallen on hard times, suffering an embarrassing third-place ratings finish for the third straight week, according to the website Mediaite.

Touted as the longest-running show on network television, “Meet the Press’” overall ratings have hit a 21-year low, finishing behind CBS’ “Face the Nation,” and ABC’s “This Week” on each of the last three Sundays.

Nielsen estimates the total viewing audience for “Meet the Press” at 2.913 million with only 854,000 in the all-important demographic of 25 to 54 — the show’s worst performance in 18 years for that demographic, Mediaite reports.

Host David Gregory took over the show in December of 2008 following the death of popular host Tim Russert. His network rivals include CBS’ Bob Schieffer and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

Compounding the show’s poor ratings of late, Greg Gutfield of Fox’s “The Five’s,” described “Meet the Press” as “the Sunday show for people who eat Kale,” Mediaite adds.
