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’.

The Peacock Network won again on Saturday as audiences were splintered throughout the nation with MLB baseball locally as well as the second pre-season game of NFL football and ratings will be adjusted downward after the adjustment of these games. At 8P, a rerun of ‘Dateline’ pulled in 5.08 million viewers which not only won its time slot but was the #1 program of the evening on broadcast. At 10P, a rerun of ‘Law & Order:SVU’ drew 4.05 million viewers.
The Tiffany Network came close to winning the night in reverse of what 30 Rock had done. At 8P, a rerun of ’48 Hours’ drew 4.03 million viewers. At 9P, a rerun of ‘CSI’ came in with 3.90 million viewers. Then at 10P, ’48 Hours’ pulled in 5.00 million viewers and #1 in its time slot but not enough to overcome Peacock’s lead.
The Alphabet Network decided to run a ‘Saturday Night at the Movies’ like in the old days of broadcast and beginning at 8P and throughout prime time, ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets’ drew 3.41 million viewers. In a day where you can watch a movie on anything anywhere, it seems a bit out of sync with what is happening in the world today.
The Animal Network of Broadcast began at 8P with a rerun of ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ and drew 1.20 million viewers. At 830P, another rerun of ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ pulled in even less with 1.13 million viewers. Then Murdoch’s Minions pulled out a rerun of ‘Glee’ and the network died with 960,000 viewers, attempting to compete with The CW. But the Little Network That Couldn’t wasn’t even on the air. Thus, FOX filled the bottom rung of the ladder.
For The Record
NBC won Saturday 4.74 million viewers. CBS finished second with 4.31 million viewers. ABC came in third with 3.41 million viewers and FOX finished with 1.06.

Television Broadcast News
Sneak Preview of NBC’s ‘Constantine’ which will air on Fridays this fall. Based on the popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, ‘Criminal Minds’) is armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and a wickedly naughty wit. He fights the good fight – or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to abandon his campaign against evil until a series of events thrusts him back into the fray, and he’ll do whatever it takes to protect the innocent. With the balance of good and evil on the line, Constantine will use his skills to travel the country, find the supernatural terrors that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.
