For Sunday, June 21, 2015 (Posted on June 22, 2015)
The Animal Network of Broadcast won on Sunday with as perplexing a finish to a Major golf tournament as has ever been seen before. In the 115th USGA edition, at 7P, ‘The United States Open Golf Championship’ was officially won by Jordan Spieth as he birdied the final hole while DJ earned a par on the 18th a few minutes later. But the story was Johnson’s journey on that final hole that turned the world of golf upside down. In a day which saw nearly everything on a golf course which at times seemed to resemble a billiards table, geometry had a field day in this former gravel pit as an average 7.577 million viewers (and a 6.2 rating and 12 share) watched the nation’s championship. With Horsham’s stinging comments after his round was finished, to Day’s destiny into the unknown of vertigo golf, this was an Open to remember. Now Mr Spieth has won two Major tournaments in a row as he goes for the Grand Slam of Golf in a single season, only won once before by Bobby Jones. It reached its peak audience at 7P with 8.4 million viewers. Note: Due to the nature of live sport ratings, FOX’s ratings (U.S. Open Golf) should be considered tentative and are likely to be adjusted in the final numbers.
The Alphabet Network didn’t have a golf course in its future as this was one of the first Sunday’s which falls on Father’s Day that it did not present the U.S. Open in decades. It had to present regular programming. And at 7P, a rerun of ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’ opened the night with an average 4.04 million viewers and a 2.3/5. At 8P, the premiere of ‘Celebrity Family Feud’, hosted by Steve Harvey, was on course with a solid average 8.53 million viewers and a 5.3/10. It reached its peak at 830P with 8.83 million viewers. Then at 9P, the premiere of ‘BattleBots’, (formerly on Comedy Central) opened with an average 5.39 million viewers and a 3.0/5. Finally at 10P, a rerun of ‘Castle’ with the episode in which Rick & Beckett get married drew an average 2.80 million viewers and a 1.8/3.
The Tiffany Network struggled with an entire evening of reruns. At 7P, a rerun of ’60 Minutes’ drew an average 5.91 million viewers and a 4.5/9. At 8P, a rerun of ‘Madam Secretary’ finished with an average 3.75 million viewers and a 2.8/5. At 9P, a rerun of ‘The Good Wife’ drew an average 2.96 million viewers and a 2.0/4. At 10P, a rerun of ‘CSI’ finished with an average 4.21 million viewers and a 2.7/5. ‘CSI’ will officially end its great run on the network with a two-hour telecast with original stars William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger on Sunday, Sept. 27, 2015.
The Peacock Network had all of its feathers plucked on Sunday as it finished in the network basement of television. At 7P, ‘Dateline’ finished with an 3.15 average 2.2/4. Then at 8P, another episode of ‘Dateline finished with an average 3.30 million viewers and a 2.3/4. At 9P, ‘A.D. The Bible Continues’ drew an average 3.49 million viewers and a 2.4/4. At 10P, ‘American Odyssey’ drew an average 2.23 million viewers and a 1.6/3.
The #1 Hispanic Network in America didn’t have a good Sunday. At 7P, ‘Aqui y Ahora’ finished with a 0.6/1 HH rating/share. At 8P, ‘Me Pongo de Pie’ produced an 0.7/1 HH rating/share. Then at 9P, ‘Me Pongo de Pie’ increased the audience to 0.9/2 HH rating/share. At 10P, ‘Sal y Pimienta’ finished the evening with a 0.9/2 HH rating/share.

Retailers’ Most Influential Promotional Vehicles, According to Online Shoppers
Emails offering free shipping (54%) or a discount (53%) are the forms of retailer advertising most likely to prompt online shoppers to shop with a retailer, per recently-released results from a UPS and comScore study. A recent MarketingCharts study found that consumers are most likely to open emails from brands because the subject line promotes a discount or offer that interests them. Retailers have clearly caught onto this trend, per L2 research, which found last year that some 55% of emails sent during Q1 2014 by the 100 omnichannel retail brands tracked in its study advertised discounts, up from 49% the previous year.
