NBC Wins On Sunday In The U.S. Behind Football. ITV #1 In The UK. Nine Dominates In Australia Behind Rugby.

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’.

There was one moment during the game when the opposing Patriots honored #75 of the Bengals whose daughter is fighting cancer, by having a moving story shown on the stadium television screens and the cheerleaders all wearing his #75 was quite a testament to the ownership of the New England team. Absolutely classy.

At 1030P, ‘CSI’ running a half-hour late drew 7.81 million viewers and a 5.5/10, decidedly better than any other network without football.


The Alphabet Network frankly was buried on Sunday. At 7P, a rerun of ‘Once Upon A Time’ drew 3.29 million viewers and a 1.8/3. At 8P, a new episode of ‘Once Upon A Time’ pulled in 8.6 million viewers and a 4.9/8. At 9P, ‘Resurrection’ drew 6.15 million viewers and a 4.5/7.
