THE GAP CONTINUES TO NARROW BETWEEN THE VIEW, THE CHEW AND THE TALK
Based on the Live Plus Same Day data from Nielsen for the recent week of February 4, The View on ABC continues to dominate with 3.16 million viewers, 526,000 women 18-49 and 707,000 women 25-54. But ongoing double-digit percent losses from one year earlier, coupled with minor total audience growth for The Chew on ABC and The Talk on CBS means the gap continues to narrow.

The View (ABC): 3.16 million (-11), The Chew (ABC): 2.53 (+ 6), The Talk (CBS): 2.53 (+16)
