FILE - In this Oct. 27, 2014 file photo, Lester Holt attends the New York premiere of "Nightcrawler" in New York. Holt's first report card as NBC's choice to fill in for suspended anchor Brian Williams as "Nightly News" anchor found him maintaining the network's ratings lead, although the competition has tightened. The understated understudy has worked without a break since Williams took himself off the newscast on Feb. 7 and was suspended for six months by NBC News on Feb. 10. The network continues to investigate Williams for misrepresenting his experiences as a journalist. (Photo by Andy Kropa/Invision/AP, File)
