Reminiscent of the early days of television when NBC's nightly newscast was titled The Camel News Caravan, NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams aired with a single sponsor, Philips Electronics, on Monday and pulled well ahead of its rivals. According to the TVNewser website, the Brian Williams-anchored newscast drew 10.3 million viewers, substantially ahead of ABC's World News with Charles Gibson's 9.2 million and miles ahead of the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, which drew only 8 million.
