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, November 7, 2014 (Posted 11.08.14)
The Tiffany Network used it power on Friday to beat all of the other networks, again. At 8P, ‘Amazing Race’ drew 6.15 million viewers. At 9P, in an amazing 100th episode, ‘Hawaii Five-0’ had a brilliant episode where Wo Fat finally met his match and will not be bothering our gang ever again. It drew 8.915 million viewers. This is Must See TV ON DEMAND. Then at 10P, the cornerstone of Friday, ‘Blue Bloods’ came out with another brilliant episode where Frank’s age is beginning to worry him; Danny seems to have hit middle ground with his new boss; Jamie is falling for his partner and Erin found herself in the middle of a dispute with her dad and her new love. it drew 11.41 million viewers, tops for the evening on all of television. The final scene is one of the memorable in the series. This is Must See TV ON DEMAND.
The Alphabet Network began the evening with ‘Last Man Standing’ and it pulled in 6.63 million viewers. At 830P, the new series, ‘Cristela’ couldn’t hold the lead-in’s viewership and finished with 4.98 million viewers. At 9P, ‘Shark Tank’ finished with 7.65 million viewers, more than 1.2 million behind ‘Hawaii Five-O’. At 10P, ’20/20′ just didn’t have anywhere near enough to move into ‘Blue Bloods’ territory and drew only 6.955 million viewers.
The Peacock Network had another middle of the road Friday. At 8P, ‘Dateline’ drew 7.75 million viewers, tops in its time slot on Friday. And then it was all down hill from that point on at 30 Rock. At 9P, ‘Grimm’ drew only 4.94 million viewers. At 10P, ‘Constantine’ drew 3.13 million viewers. The suits at Peacockville have to figure out if they are going program news, fantasy or whatever to succeed. Certainly this mixture is not working. Just ask the affiliates who finish at the bottom of the lead-in basement for their Late News.
The Animal Network of Broadcast did it again on Friday. To put it mildly, they did nothing. At 8P, they trotted out a rerun of ‘MasterChef Jr.’ which could only muster 2.035 million viewers. At 9P, a rerun of their rookie hit ‘Gotham’ drew 1.285 million viewers. If you didn’t see this one, with Penguin’s coming out party, it is Must See TV ON DEMAND.
The Little Network That Couldn’t didn’t on this Friday. At 8P, ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ drew 1.40 million viewers. At 830P, a rerun of ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ drew 1.21 million viewers. At 9P, ‘America’s Next Top Model’ drew 1.07 million viewers. If this network ran ‘Masters of Illusion’ and ‘Penn & Teller’ along with ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’, they would know FOX out of fourth. This could be a very fun night if that happened. It would be a perfect Friday for the demo they serve.
Friday’s edition of ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’, with guests Jay Leno, Lucy Liu and Kevin Delaney, with Dave Davies sitting in with The Roots, averaged a 3.3 rating, 8 share in metered-market households, making it the top-rated Friday telecast of ‘The Tonight Show’ in eight months (since March 7, with a 3.4/8 during the third week of Jimmy Fallon’s tenure as ‘Tonight’ host).
