NBC Won On Sunday In The U.S. BBC One #1 In The UK. 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 film scored $1.8 million for the post-Christmas weekend, for a total of $2.8 million domestically. The Interview performed better digitally: The movie has been rented or purchased online more than 2 million times, earning $15 million through Saturday, Sony Pictures says. Rogen made it clear that the big victory was releasing the goofy satire after it was initially pulled from theaters in response to threats from cyber-terrorists.
“I’m so grateful that the movie found its way into theaters, and I’m thrilled that people actually went out and saw it,” Rogen said in a statement released Sunday. “The fact that people actually left their houses when they had the option of staying home is amazing.”
