CBS Tops On Tuesday In U.S. BBC One #1 In The UK. Network Nine Wins 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’.

The Tiffany Network finished 52% ahead of its nearest rival, NBC, on Tuesday.

At 9P it led into a dominant ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ with 15.90 million viewers and a 10.5/15, which held 91% of the 830P portion of its parent series (11.0/17). At 10P, ‘Person of Interest’ closed the night with 9.73 million viewers and a 6.5/11 (which was 19% below the 8.0/14 on the year-ago night). All in all, every show led their time slot.


The Peacock Network finished second. At 8P, ‘The Voice’ scored a rock-solid (and second place) 11.89 million viewers and a 8.3/13. At 9P, the series-premiere of the sitcom ‘Marry Me’ opened with 7.76 million viewers and a 5.6/9. At 930P, ‘About A Boy’, which was for some reason moved from 9P, drew 6.16 million viewers and a 4.2/6. At 10P, ‘Chicago Fire’ drew 7.18 million viewers and a 4.8/8.


The Alphabet Network has a problem. And that is the fact that The CW not only climbed over FOX but now has its eyes on the Disney folks. At 8P, ‘Selfie’ finished dead last with 3.52 million viewers and a 2.9/5. At 830P, ‘Manhattan Love Story’ finished even lower with 2.96 million family and friends and a 2.3/4. Both shows showed no signs of improvement. They could be the first to be cancelled. At 9P, ‘Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD’ pulled in 4.62 million viewers and a 3.2/5 in the overnights. It was 36% below its year-ago performance at 8P. At 10P, ‘Forever’ drew 4.68 million viewers and a 3.4/6 at 10 p.m.) dropped by 6% week-to-week (vs. a 3.6/6 on Oct. 7) but was the highest rated program on the network on Tuesday.

The CW

The Little Network That Couldn’t DID!!!! It beat FOX again on Tuesday. And at 8P, The CW has a bona fide hit on Tuesday with ‘The Flash’ which in week two scored 4.12 million viewers and a 3.0 rating/5 share in the household overnights. Comparably, this was 88% above former time period occupant ‘The Originals’ on the year-ago evening (1.6/2 on 10/15/13). Last week’s 3.4/5 translated into 6.42 million viewers with 3-days of DVR usage factored in (which was the CW’s most-watched series premiere ever). At 9P, was veteran ‘Supernatural’, which was on par from the year-ago telecast with 2.20 million and a 1.5/2.


The Animal Network of Broadcast is in its death throes. While it abandoned baseball playoffs by pushing the big draw over to its struggling FOX Sports 1 on cable, it continues to die. At 8P, a rerun of ‘The Simpsons” drew 1.97 and a 1.3/2. At 830P, a rerun of ‘Bob’s Burgers’ drew 1.53 million viewers and a 0.9/1). At 9P, a new episode of ‘New Girl’ drew 2.26 million viewers and a 1.8/3, the top program on the network on Tuesday. At 930P, ‘The Mindy Project’ drew 2.21 million viewers and a 1.7/3), down by 22% from last week’s poor overnight average. You paid for baseball. Use baseball to pull yourself up by the boot straps.
