Jan 2016 ratings are close in Orlando…

(edited from OrlandoSentinel.com) – In the 25-to-54 age group so dear to news advertisers, WFTV ranked first from 4 to 6:30 p.m. and won a close contest at 11 p.m., even though the station didn’t have a lot of help from ABC, which ranked fourth in prime time.

How close? Only 352 viewers separated WFTV from No. 2 WESH, according to Nielsen ratings supplied to the Sentinel. But WKMG reached the most viewers in all at 11 p.m. with help from CBS.
