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 Tuesday, November 25, 2014 (Posted 11.26.14)

ABC was #1 on Tuesday but 'NCIS' was the top program.

ABC was #1 on Tuesday but ‘NCIS’ was the top program.


The Alphabet Network had a big night on Monday. At 8P the finals of this year’s ‘Dancing With the Stars’ finished second in the time slot with 11.31 million viewers and a 7.8/12. At 9P, as ‘DWTS’ entered the final competition and the announcement on who wold be named champion, it drew 15.98 million viewers.


The Tiffany Network ran their powerful Tuesday lineup. At 8P, ‘NCIS’ had a terrific episode regarding security and an airport during the busy Thanksgiving holiday. In this Must See TV ON DEMAND episode, 16.01 million viewers watched with a 9.8/16 against the season finale of ‘DWTS’. At 9P, ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ with another great episode, finished with 14.47 million viewers and a 8.5/13, winning its time slot in a Must See TV ON DEMAND program. At 10P, in what may have been the best episode of the year with ‘Person Of Interest’, with guest star Enrico Colantoni, it drew 9.04 million viewers and a 5.9/10 against the final announcement of this years winner on ‘DWTS’. All in all, it was a tremendous performance by this seasoned drama. it was Must See TV ON DEMAND for the episode titled “The Devil You Know.” The Game Within The Game. There’s Always A Way Out. If Colantoni does not win an Emmy for this episode, no Emmy should be awarded. Simply fantastic.


The Peacock Network fell flat on Wednesday. At 8P, ‘The Voice’ dropped by 13% from one week earlier with 9.37 million viewers and a 6.2/10. But at 9P, ‘Marry Me’ failed with 3.47 million viewers and a 2.5/4. At 930P, ‘About a Boy’ dropped further with 3.05 million viewers and a 2.2/3. This is not a good sign for a potentially strong program. At 10P, ‘Chicago Fire’ climbed back up from the ashes with 6.02 million viewers and a 3.9/7 which was only good for third in this time slot.


The Animal Network of Broadcast was nearly a complete failure on Tuesday. At 8P, ‘MasterChef Junior’ dropped 10% week-to-week in the overnights, with 4.06 million viewers and a 2.9/4. T led into the 9P, ‘New Girl’ which finished with 2.77 million viewers and a 2.1/3. At 930P, ‘The Mindy Project’ had 2.33 million family and friends with a 1.7/3. Have you noticed that Tuesday is not a night for laughter or for that matter, bad comedies?

The CW

The Little Network That Couldn’t almost did. At 8P, ‘The Flash’ remains the real deal with 3.47 million viewers and a 2.6/ 4, which was 53% above the 1.7/3 in the overnights for ‘The Originals’ on the year-ago evening. And at 9P, that led into ‘Supernatural’ which pulled in 2.30 million viewers and a 1.5/2. Their hope is that ‘The Mindy Project’ continues and is renews by Murdoch’s Minions.
