NBC Wins On Tuesday In The U.S. BBC One Tops In The UK. Seven Tops All In Australia.

Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. From fourth quarter 2012 to fourth-quarter 2013, the hours consumers spent watching online video grew 30%. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

NBC with 'America's Got Talent' was #1 on Tuesday.

NBC with ‘America’s Got Talent’ was #1 on Tuesday.

Tuesday, 06.03.14 (Posted 06.04.14)


The Peacock Network is all fluffed out with feather ablaze. At 8P, ‘America’s Got Talent’ led NBC to Tuesday victory with 11.3 million viewers and a 7.1 rating/12 share. At 10P, the NBC scripted drama ‘The Night Shift’ won the hour with 6.87 million viewers and a 4.4/8. This is NBC’s top summer drama debut in five years (since ‘The Philanthropist’ on June 24, 2009).



The Tiffany Network had again, an all rerun evening and it is beginning to show. The powerful veteran lineup just could not hold up to the new programming of other networks. At 8P, a rerun of America’s favorite procedural, ‘NCIS’ drew 8.61 million viewers and a 6.1/10 with a Christmas episode. Considering that weather was heating up on Tuesday across the nation, makes all the sense in the world, doesn’t it? Regardless we did learn one big thing from this episode titled, ‘Homesick’. We learn Gibbs doesn’t like ginger; however, he does like cinnamon. At 9P, another rerun of ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ drew 7.69 million viewers and a 5.3/ 9 in an excellent episode about Chinese involvement in gaining Navy drone technology but we have seen this before. And at 10P, another rerun of ‘Person of Interest’ drew 5.61 million viewers and a 3.8/ 7). Note: usually original programming does better than reruns. Just say’in.



The Alphabet Network at 8P brought the world ‘Extreme Weight Loss’ and not too many cared as it drew 4.07 million viewers and a 2.6/4. At 10P, the unusual ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’ drew 4.23 million viewers and a 2.4/4, which featured the wives of David Justice and Dweezil Zappa switching households. OK. Perhaps original programming is not as good as good reruns. We apologize for the previous statement after viewing what the Disney Network of Broadcasting put on the air on Tuesday.



Red Hispana Número Uno at 8P led off the evening with ‘De Que Te Quiero, Te Quiero’ and drew an 0.8 A18-49 rating. At 9P, tied for #2 as ‘Lo Que La Vida Me Robo’ delivered a 1.2 A18-49 rating and the top for the network on Tuesday. At 10P, ‘Que Pobres Tan Ricos’ came in with a 0.9 A18-49 Rating.



Avis de redes Hispanas, Telemundo began the evening at 8P with ‘La Impostora’ and it drew an 0.5 A18-49. At 9P, ‘En Otra Pie’ and upped the level to 0.6 A18-49. Then at 10P, the top program of the night on the network, ‘El Señor de los Cielos’ drew a high of 0.8 A18-49, just 0.1 behind ‘Que Pobres Tan Ricos’. This is quite a battle among Hispanic Networks at 10P.



The Animal Network of Broadcast brought us original stupid. Alright already. Some network’s original programming is terrible. AT 8P, FOX brought us ‘Riot’ and it drew 1.15 million viewers and a 1.0/2. At 9P, they continued to embarrass themselves with ‘I Wanna Marry Harry’ and it resulted in a subpar 1.03 million friends and Royal Family and a 1.0/2.

The CW

FAMOUS IN 12 -- Pictured: The Artiaga Family

At the Little Network That Could at 8P, the series-premiere news, docuseries ‘Famous in 12’ died at the entry gate as it drew 610,000 viewers and a 0.7/1. At 9P it led into a rerun of ‘Supernatural’ which 730,000 drew viewers and a 0.6/1. Wow! This was a disastrous night for the C & W crew. Question: Does CBS and/or Warner Bros. really want their brands tarnished like this?

Late Night

At 1135P, NBC’s’The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ finished #1 with 2.7/7. David Letterman on CBS had a 2.0/5 and Jimmy Kimmel on ABC drew a 1.9/5. At 1235A, ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’ had a 1.3/5. ‘Craig Ferguson’ on CBS drew a 1.0/4 as ABC’s ‘Nightline’ pulled a 1.1/4. AT 135A, ‘Last Call With Carson Daly’ on NBC drew 0.9/4.

For The Record


NBC finished #1 on Tuesday with 9.833 million viewers and a 6.2 rating and a 10 share of the available audience but finished down 1.093 million viewers compared to a year ago. CBS was #2 with 7.284 million viewers and a 5.0/9 yet it finished up 471,000 viewers from a year ago. ABC came in #3 next with 3.924 million viewers and a 2.5/4, which was down 72,000 viewers from the comparable day a year ago. Univision finished #4 with 2.5 million viewers and a 1.4/2. Telemundo was #5 and drew 1.5 million viewers and an 0.8/1. FOX was #6 as it drew 1.118 million viewers and a 1.0/2 which finished down 3.208 million viewers from the comparable day a year ago. The CW finished last as it drew 724,000 viewers and a 0.6/1, up 60,0000 viewers from the previous year on this day. Among the top five English programming network, broadcast was down 3.842 million. Where did all the viewers go?

Today In TV History


On this day in 1981, the final episode of ‘The Waltons’ aired on CBS. Six TV movies aired between 1982 and 1997. The series ran for nine years. Goodnight, John Boy.


Most Important Factors Influencing Consumers


Per Accenture, consumers aged 20-40 in the US and UK were asked to rank the factors that would make them most likely to complete the purchase of a product or service. Sales and competitive pricing (61%) was by far their most critical. Superior products (36%) and customer experience (35%) are also key, according to respondents. They were followed closely by customer loyalty programs (31%) and relevant promotions (26%). Ad campaigns and celebrity endorsements trailed by a significant margin, presumably as they’re more influential in driving awareness than completed purchases.
