People stuck at home due to virus turn to news programming

NEW YORK (AP) — Millions of Americans stuck at home because of the coronavirus are turning to news programming.

The Nielsen company said that both ABC's "World News Tonight" and NBC's "Nightly News" averaged more viewers than any entertainment show in prime time last week. Once thought on the verge of extinction, the evening newscasts have proven their worth with a cogent summary of the day's developments.

Cable news viewership is surging, too. MSNBC had a higher average viewership in daytime last week than at any time since the network started in 1996. CNN more than doubled its daytime viewership compared to last year.
