NBC Tops Broadcast Network On Monday In The U.S. ITV #1 In The UK. Seven 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’.

NBC #1 broadcast network on Monday. ‘The Voice’ top program.


The Peacock Network made it two in a row, at least on broadcast. On Monday, at 8P, two hours of singing on ‘The Voice’ brought in 10.99 million viewers and a 7.4 rating/11 share in the household overnights, which was 17% above the 6.3/9 one week earlier and on par from the year-ago evening. And thanks to CBS pulling ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ from the schedule on this Monday, ‘State of Affairs’ finished in second-place with 7.03 million viewers and a 4.8/8.

At 10P, ‘Castle’ delivered 8.25 million viewers and a 5.6/9 to easily win the time slot, but dropped 7% from the 6.1/10 in the overnights one week earlier.


The Tiffany Network tried something completely different on Monday, rerun the entire night. In an attempt to warm up the audience to the best bullpen program in television history, it decided to run four rerun episodes of ‘Mike & Molly’ back-to-back-to-back-to-back to begin the evening. At 8P, the first rerun of Mike & Molly’ drew 6.25 million viewers and a 4.1/6. At 830P, rerun episode #2 of ‘Mike & Molly’ drew 5.67 million viewers and a 3.7/6.

Then at 10P, Black Rock decided to rerun an episode of ‘Scorpion’. The only tie-in to the regularly scheduled ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ in this time slot was a cross-over appearance of Linda Hunt, in this episode. It drew million viewers and a . This attempt was predictable. If you give up, you fail to win. Simple as that. It drew 5.02 million viewers and a 3.3/5.
