ABC News' "Good Morning America" ranked No. 1 among the morning programs in Total Viewers (4.605 million) and Adults 25-54 (1.703 million) for the week of June 30, 2014, based on Live + Same Day Data from Nielsen Media Research. "GMA" beat NBC's "Today" (4.294 million and 1.625 million, respectively) during the week by 311,000 Total Viewers and by 78,000 Adults 25-54.

Overall, "GMA" has ranked No. 1 in Total Viewers in 101 of the last 105 weeks (since w/o 6/25/12), finishing behind "Today" only during the two weeks of the 2012 Summer Olympics and the two weeks of the 2014 Winter Olympics. In Adults 25-54, "GMA" has ranked No. 1 in 37 of the 41 weeks of the season, pacing ahead of the No. 1 finishes at the same point of the 2012-13 Season (33 of 40 weeks*).
