CBS 2 News Posts Gains at 5AM, 6AM, 5PM and 6PM

The February 2008 sweeps period is over and the ratings are in. While CBS 2 News at Noon and at 11:00 are down, following market-wide trends at those times, the station has good news in the morning and in the evening. According to ratings provided in a WABC-TV press release, CBS 2 News This Morning at 5:00 a.m. is up 11% from last year to a 1.0/6. At 6:00 a.m., the broadcast is up 7% to a 1.6/7. CBS 2 News at 5:00 is up 32% to a 4.1/9 and CBS 2 News at 6:00 is up 19% to a 3.8/8, making them the only newscasts to increase their audiences in those time periods year-to-year.

Hopefully they will get rid of Chris and Kristine at 11pm in favor for Dana and Jim.

They tried Dana and Jim. Didn't work either.
