Ratings: Newsroom Hits High, Good Afternoon America Looks So-So, GMA Tops Tweaked Today

HBO’s The Newsroom is still making headlines, this Sunday hitting a three-week (and thus “all-time”) high in total audience.

The Aaron Sorkin series’ latest tally of 2.2 million total viewers marks a jump of 32 percent from the Sunday prior, and inched past the premiere audience of 2.1 mil.

A few other ratings nuggets from here and there….

* On the topic of Sunday-night cable dramas, TNT’s Falling Skies this week saw an uptick in total audience (from 3.39 million viewers to 3.64) while holding steady at a 1.2 demo rating. A Season 3 pick-up is rumored to be imminent.

* ABC’s stop-gap daytime filler Good Afternoon America opened softly on Monday, and fell well shy of the numbers delivered by, if I may rattle the hornet’s nest, the final week of All My Children. According to Marc Berman’s TV Media Insights, GAA premiered to a 1.7 households rating (versus AMC‘s farewell week average of 2.3), a 0.7 with Women 18-49 (vs. 1.1) and a 0.8 among the Women 25-54 set (vs. 1.5). Only in the Women 18-34 demo (0.5 vs. 0.6) did the afternoon newsmag come close to Pine Valley’s finest.

* And speaking of Good [Something] America programs, GMA proper on Monday jussssst barely edged out NBC’s rejiggered Today in total viewers (4.43 mil over 4.1 mil) and in the Adults 25-54 demo (1.68 vs. 1.674, eek), The Hollywood Reporter. if these fast affiliate tallies hold up, it’ll mark GMA’s first Monday win over Today in those measures since February 2006.
