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’.

For Friday, October 3, 2014 (Posted 10.04.14)
For the fifth night in a row, The Tiffany Network won on Friday. At 8P, ‘The Amazing Race’ drew 6.16 million viewers. At 9P, with a terrific episode of ‘Hawaii Five-0’ Steve and the crew solved an involved kidnapping of a Navy Seal’s daughter while the Seal was on assignment. It drew 9.71 million viewers. At 10P, ‘Blue Bloods’ powered through and won the evening with 10.68 million viewers as everyone in the family had an opinion on what is the responsibility of a cop’s partner and vice versa.
The Alphabet Network finished second on Friday. At 8P, the season premiere of ‘Last Man Standing’ drew 6.64 million viewers which led the time slot. AT 9P, ‘Shark Tank’ slipped to second in the time slot even though it increase the audience to 7.07 million viewers but fell more than 2 million viewers behind the power of ‘Hawaii Five-0’. At 10P, ’20/20′ fell flat and drew only 4.75 million viewers, good for last place in the time slot. What began as a good night, finished badly for the Disney Network of Broadcast.
The Peacock Network had nothing on Friday. First, at 8P, it decided to rerun premiere sitcoms from Thursday and they did not perform at all as ‘Bad Judge’ pulled in 4.03 million viewers. At 830P, a rerun of the premiere of ‘A to Z’ drew 3.03 million viewers. At 9P, ‘Dateline’ drew 5.42 million viewers, just half what ‘Blue Bloods’ drew.
The Animal Network of Broadcast had nothing on Friday. First at 8P, it presented ‘Utopia’. Enough said. It drew 1.75 friends and family. At 9P, a rerun of ‘Gotham’ drew 1.78 million viewers to top their evening. When does criticism become redundant? When do the Murdoch Minions realize they should not be in television?
The Little Network That Couldn’t clearly didn’t even when they had a chance. At 8P, ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ drew 1.28 million viewers. At 830P, a rerun of ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ pulled in 1.09 million viewers. At 9P, ‘America’s Next Top Model’ drew 1.14 million viewers. With any luck it could have beaten FOX on Friday for the Futility Crown.
