  • NEW YORK (AP) — The 16-year ratings dominance of NBC’s “Today” show, one of television’s most epic streaks, has apparently ended.
    The Nielsen Co. said Monday that ABC’s “Good Morning America” beat NBC’s morning show last week by a razor-thin margin of 13,000 viewers — and ABC owes Tim Tebow a hearty thank you.
    The “Today” show had won 852 consecutive weeks in the ratings, a streak that began in December 1995 when Bryant Gumbel and Katie Couric were the chief anchors.
