NBC Won In The U.S. BBC One Tops In The UK & Nine Was Victorious In Australia On Tuesday.

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’.

That led into a last-place at 10P, the finale of ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’ which drew 2.80 million viewers and a 2.0/3. The suits at the Disney Broadcast Network simply can’t pull themselves away from a wave of reality or sleazy drama. Time to go back to school. Nobody cares about your stuff, Mouseketeers.
