"Good Morning America" continues to beat "Today"
(CBS News) ABC's "Good Morning America" beat out NBC's "Today" for the show's second week without co-host Robin Roberts, who is on extended medical leave for a bone marrow transplant.
Last week, "GMA" beat "Today" by more than 600,000 viewers and 100,000 adults age 25-54, winning its third week in a row. This is the longest streak the show has had in both categories in 18 years, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
GMA and "Today" have had the narrowest margins in viewers and demo since the 1994-1995 season.
Roberts started her leave on Aug. 30. While she is receiving treatment, the show will have guest co-hosts to fill her seat.
