May Sweeps L.A. TV Ratings: Good Month for KABC, KCAL, KTLA



With May sweeps wrapped up (although, I must note, L.A. is a metered market measured all year, so sweeps are pointless here), KABC/Channel 7 remains the local market leader in every news time slot. But KTLA has reason to crow in the mornings, as "KTLA Morning News" is a close second to KABC's "Good Morning America" (and where KTTV's "Good Day LA" continues to disappear). At 10 p.m., KCAL leads.

Here are the key weekday matchups. Ratings are for May 2014 (weekdays only), with May 2013 in parenthesis for comparison.

I've often wondered how much of "Good Morning America," and for that matter "Today," is on tape, and why anyone would watch old news. It's no surprise to me KTLA is so strong from 7-10 a.m. because you know you are getting live news.

Most of the NY national shows are on tape here -- except for heavy, breaking news days, when the shows do another live episode at 10 am ET for the West Coast.
