NBC With EMMYS Win Monday In U.S. BBC One #1 In The UK. Nine 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 won Monday with the '66th Annual Emmy Awards' telecast.

NBC won Monday with the ’66th Annual Emmy Awards’ telecast.


The Peacock Network presented the 66th Annual Emmy Awards from the Nokia Theatre at LA LIVE in downtown Los Angeles on Monday. The list of all of the winners is listed below. For the evening, which began at 8P (ET)/5P (PT), the show drew 15.58 million viewers. At 930P, it reached its peak. It’s NBC’s highest-rated Monday in metered-market households, excluding Olympics, in seven years, since Jan. 15, 2007 (‘Golden Globes’).


The Tiffany Network ran its regular Monday night lineup against the Emmy’s and at 8P, a rerun of ‘2 Broke Girls’ pulled in 3.93 million viewers. At 830P, a rerun of ‘Mom’, whose Allison Janney, won the Emmy for best supporting actress in a comedy, drew slightly more with 3.93 million viewers watching. At 9P, a rerun of ‘Mike & Molly’ drew 4.87 million viewers while at 930P, a rerun of ‘Two and a Half Men’ drew 4.28 million. At 10P, ‘Under The Dome’ drew 6.59 million viewers as it ranked as the top non-Emmy program of the evening.


The Animal Network of Broadcast ran its usual lineup on Monday. At 8P, ‘MasterChef’ drew 5.34 million viewers. At 9P, ‘Hotel Hell’ produced 3.90 million viewers. Gordon Ramsey must have been tried in the last hour or people were tired of Gordon Ramsey in the last hour.


The Alphabet Network had its own weird way of handling an event night. At 8P, ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ drew in 4.60 million viewers. At 10P, ‘Mistresses’ drew 3.17 million. Which all goes to prove one thing: ABC can’t help itself when it comes to T&A.


The #1 Hispanic Network in America had a mediocre Monday. At 8P, ‘Mi Corazon es Tuyo’ delivered a 1.3 A18-39 ratings which ranked it third in the time slot. At 8P, ‘Hasta el fin del Mundo’ did the same, again with a 1.3 A18-49 ratings and a third place rank in its time slot. At 10P, ‘La Malquerida’ had a 1.0 A18-49 rating but held the third place position in its time slot within this demo.

The CW

The Little Network That Couldn’t tried. At 8P, a rerun of ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ drew 1.24 million viewers and at 830P, another rerun of ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ drew even more, 1.27 million viewers. At 9P, ‘America’s Next Top Model’ drew 1.08 million viewers. Anytime The CW can stay above 1 million viewers for all of its program in a single night is considered a victory or sorts. Thus: it tried.

For The Record

NBC powered through with the 66th Annual Emmy Awards presentation and was #1 on Monday with 15.58 million viewers and an 10.2 rating and 18 share of the available audience. CBS finished second with 5.04 million viewers and a 3.3/5. FOX had 4.62 million viewers and a 2.8/5. ABC had 4.16 million viewers and a 2.9/5. USA Network finished with 3.974 million viewers. Univision finished with a 1.6/3. Telemundo had a 0.9/2. The CW finished with 1.16 million viewers and a 0.7/1.

Today In TV History

On this day in 1939, the first televised major league baseball games were shown. The event was a double-header between the Cincinnati Reds and the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn. Although there is no footage from that famed telecast, the above is a view of the 1939 World Series by a fan who had an 8mm color film camera.

mCommerce Fuels Growth In France

Though France’s economy is in the doldrums, the country’s ecommerce sector is enjoying double-digit growth. According to a July 2014 report from CCM Benchmark Group, digital sales were up 14% in 2013, compared with 2012. The analysis was based on data from 50 ecommerce sites, including those of Accor, Carrefour and Air France.


The largest online sellers generally fared best. Overall, seven out of 10 ecommerce merchants in France were profitable in 2013, according to CCM. But among smaller businesses—those with annual turnover of less than €1 million ($1.3 million)—the proportion seeing a profit was just 45%. Much of the sales gain was traceable to mobile devices. Fully 60% of retailers polled said mcommerce was their main growth driver during the year. Across the industry, 12% of online revenues in France came from mcommerce in 2013, a gain of 5 percentage points compared with 2012. But most online sellers also used other strategies to increase their competitiveness in the cutthroat world of retailing. When researchers asked these digital retailers about other sources of growth in 2013, 56% said they personalized offers to consumers, and the same number provided multichannel offerings. Almost half (46%) said international expansion contributed to better sales results in 2013. Two in five posted growth after diversifying their product range, and 14% of merchants said using social media raised their profits.

Delivery was another area where merchants in France aimed to increase their appeal to consumers. Fully 100% of those quizzed by CCM offered home delivery, and 74% of consumers used this option. More than half (53%) of retailers also let shoppers collect their purchases in-store; 44% of shoppers did so. There was one significant mismatch between delivery option and uptake: While 71% of online retailers enabled consumers to collect their shopping at a pickup point, only 34% of customers chose this method.

It is estimated that French business-to-consumer ecommerce sales will reach $47.65 billion this year, surpassing the 2013 total by 10.0%. People purchasing on digital platforms for the first time will fuel some of that rise. More than two-thirds of internet users in France are expected to be digital buyers in 2014. Yet this market still has enormous potential for expansion, if developments in neighboring countries are anything to go by. In Germany, it is expected that nearly 80% of web users ages 14 and older to make a digital purchase this year, and in the UK, 88.0% will do so.

Advertising Note

Research shows consumers choose brands that engage their passions 1.5x more than those that just urge them to buy.
