‘Sunday Morning’: Best May Sweep Since ’87

The long-running Sunday news program delivered its largest May sweep audience since the advent of the Nielsen People Meter in 1987. The Charles Osgood-hosted Sunday Morning, which launched on CBS in 1979, averaged 5.92 million viewers (up 3% from last year) and a 1.3 rating in adults 25-54. That’s No. 1 in both categories among the Sunday morning newscasts.
