Gayle King on the set of “CBS This Morning”

*Even as “Good Morning America” solidifies its status as the most popular morning program, ABC isn’t the only network where executives have been smiling lately.

The Nielsen ratings company’s measurement of viewers during May said the “CBS This Morning” broadcast, which features co-host Gayle King alongside anchors Charlie Rose and  Norah O’Donnell, is growing at a faster rate, reports The Associated Press. The CBS telecast, however, remains in third place behind “Good Morning America” and NBC’s struggling “Today” show.

In May of last year, “Today” and “Good Morning America” were nearly tied for the lead, with the NBC show maintaining a slight edge. A year later, ABC is clearly dominant: ABC beat NBC by nearly a million viewers.

ABC was up 10 percent in viewers from last year, and CBS was up 19 percent. NBC dropped 8 percent.
