The folks at ABC News noted that while CBS passed them for the week, it was just one week, and that ABC drew more viewers with the advertiser-desired news audience of 25- to 54-year-olds.
CBS' move also comes after a period of turmoil at ABC's "World News Tonight." In the past year, anchor Peter Jennings died of lung cancer, Bob Woodruff and Elizabeth Vargas were named anchors of the show, then Woodruff was injured in a roadside bombing in Iraq.

 Media Matters - How liberal is CBS really ?
CBS Evening News segments on political topics broadcast between November 3, 2004, and February 17, 2005, featured 65 clips of Democratic officials or commentators representing progressive organizations and 83 clips of Republican officials or commentators representing conservative organizations.
In November, CBS officials refused to air an advertisement for the United Church of Christ that promoted inclusion of gays, racial minorities and people with disabilities because they considered it "unacceptable for broadcast," noting in particular the Bush administration's endorsement of the Federal Marriage Amendment as part of their justification for not airing the ad.
But CBS News is probably the finest of the network news organizations, and it's a shame that with the right already offside, you folk should attack from the other angle, and without context.

The timing couldn't be worse for NBC - or better for CBS - as they both head into the crucial "upfront" season in May, when advertisers commit millions to buy commercial time for the upcoming TV season.
NBC is already in a weakened position heading into those negotiations, with a lackluster primetime lineup and constant speculation that it is in danger of losing its morning show star.
While the evening news skews toward an older audience, CBS is banking Couric will play well to younger viewers, which advertisers consider a key demographic.

Yet today, when CBS unveils its fall schedule to advertisers, it'll boast that interim anchor Bob Schieffer has turned the once-troubled broadcast around, increasing ratings while competitors at NBC and ABC have declined, and paving the way for the arrival of NBC Today star Katie Couric Sept. 5.
Last week, for the first time since 2001, Evening News beat ABC's World News Tonight in total viewers, setting the stage for a horse race between the two newscasts while NBC Nightly News enjoys a comfortable margin in first place.
McManus says Couric, who leaves Today at the end of this month, will start at CBS in July and spend the summer banking stories for Evening News and 60 Minutes and working with producers on the look and tone of the new broadcast.
