ESPN #1 Monday as 'Monday Night Football' finished as the top program.

ESPN #1 Monday as ‘Monday Night Football’ finished as the top program.


Walt’s World of Sports Network finished #1 Monday as it had an NFL doubleheader. At 8P, ‘Monday Night Football’, featuring the Atlanta Falcon’s victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, 26-24, brought in an average million viewers and a 9.8 household rating. The game rating peaked from 10P–1015P with a 13.9 metered market rating. Locally, Philadelphia finished with a 14.6 rating; West Palm Beach had a 14.3; Richmond-Petersburg finished with a 14.1; New Orleans had a 13.9 and Norfolk came in with a 13.6. Atlanta was outside the Top 10 with a 9.9 rating. Following that game at 1020P, San Francisco 49ers victory over the Minnesota Vikings, 20-3, brought in an average million viewers and a 9.5 HH rating. Locally, Minneapolis/St. Paul finished with an 11.7 HH rating while San Francisco finished with a 10.9 HH rating. The top 10 metered markets (not including those of the competing teams): Sacramento (23.4), Las Vegas (15.7), New Orleans (15.1), San Diego (14.9), Phoenix (14.0), Seattle-Tacoma (14.0), Los Angeles (12.6), Denver (12.5), Portland (11.6) and San Antonio (11.4). The first weekend of pro football is now history and ESPN was victorious.


Walt’s Alphabet Network finished #2 as it brought back the big dancing favorite. At 8P, ‘Dancing With The Stars’ was back in action with a whole new group as it finished with an average 13.438 million viewers and a 9.1/14, peaking at 9P with a 9.4/15. But at 930, it slipped.It was below last year’s numbers of 13.64 million (9.5/15). At 10P, a new program, ‘Dance Battle America’ finished with an average 5.715 million viewers and a 3.7/6.


The Peacock Network finished well behind into third place on Monday. From 8P to 11P, this year finals of ‘American Ninja Warrior’ finished with an average million viewers and a 4.0/6, up substantially from last year’s final (3.3 rating).


The Tiffany Network finished fourth on this Monday. At 8P, a rerun of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ finished with an average 7.12 million viewers and a 4.6/ 7. But surely the wedding next Monday will push ‘Bang’ to #1. At 830P, a rerun of ‘The Odd Couple’ finished with an average 5.02 million viewers and a 3.1/5. At 9P, a rerun of ‘Scorpion’ finished with an average 4.745 million viewers and a 3.0/5. And at 10P, the final rerun from last season of ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ finished with an average 5.555 million viewers and a 3.4/6.


The Animal Network of Broadcast finished Monday. That was the good news. The bad news was that all evening long, the season’s last ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ concluded with a record low season with an average 2.435 million viewers and a 2.1/3. The biggest problem was the drop from the first hour to conclusion. Result? So, who cares if they can dance? Now, will Murdoch’s Minions do better than they did last year? We’ll see as they bring us ‘So You Think You Can Program A Television Network?’.

The CW

The Little Network That Couldn’t tried as their summer wound up. At 8P, ‘Penn & Teller: Fool Us’ brought in an average 1.475 million viewers and a 1.2/2.

Consumer Satisfaction With The In-Store Shopping Experience
About three-quarters of the almost 2,000 shoppers surveyed around the world by Zebra Technologies are at least somewhat satisfied with shopping in stores, per a recent study. But satisfaction rates are lower for product prices (58%) and the availability of coupons, special offers and discounts (51%). The study results indicate that product availability is the top aspect of the in-store experience that influences greater spending, while the most compelling reason for shopping in-store is to browse or experience the physical product.

The survey was conducted from January 6-February 18 2015 by Research Now, in the following countries: United States (588), Canada (137), Singapore (105), Australia (114), UK (167), Italy (119), Spain (125), France (146), Germany (125), China (118), Japan (112), and Thailand (99).
