Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. 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.

NBC #1 Tuesday as 'America's Got Talent' top program

NBC #1 Tuesday as ‘America’s Got Talent’ top program


The Peacock Network won on Tuesday, perhaps the only Tuesday it will ever win again this year. But on this Tuesday, ‘America’s Got Talent’ finished with an average 11.33 million viewers and a 7.5 rating/12 share. And at 10P, the series premiere of ‘Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris’ finished with an average 6.79 million viewers and a 4.7 rating/8 share in households. It may be the last time this program ever sees the top position again this year after the premiere of the other network’s entries into this time slot.


The Tiffany Network was tarnished this Tuesday as it performed way below their normal level due in part to the failure of their freshman entry, ‘Zoo’, which has underperformed all summer long. At 8P, ‘Big Brother, not a major competitor to ‘AGT’ finished with 6.09 million viewers and a 4.2/7. At 9P, ‘The Zoo’ season finale finished with an average 4.81 million viewers, well below expectation, and a 3.5/6. At 10P, a rerun of ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ does not have enough longevity to muster a following in reruns as it finished with an average 4.78 million viewers and a 3.3/6. Let’s face it, CBS summer programming has been less than spectacular and has not found a match to compete with NBC’s reality dominated programming.


The Alphabet Network fell from Monday’s power lineup and finished third. At 8P, a rerun of ‘Fresh Off The Boat’ finished with an average 3.45 million viewers and a 2.6/5. At 830P, another rerun of ‘Fresh Off The Boat’ finished with 3.45 million viewers and again, a 2.6/5. At 9P, a two-hour recap show of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ was not a waste of time as many predicted as it finished with an average 5.70 million viewers and a 3.9/7 as it won it’s 9P hour. Go figure.


The #1 Hispanic Network in America finished #4 on Tuesday, ahead of FOX, Telemundo and The CW. At 8P, ‘Amores con Trampa’ finished with a 1.2/2 household rating. At 9P, ‘Lo Imperdonable’ finished with a 1.4/2, peaking at 1.5/2 at 930P. At 10P, ‘Yo no Creo en los Hombres’ dropped with only a 1.1/2 household rating to finish the evening, as it was beaten by Telemundo’s ‘El Señor de los Cielos’ which finished with a 1.2/2, that network’s top program.


The Animal Network of Broadcast finished badly on Tuesday. It decided to run ‘Tuesday Night At The Movies’ by airing ‘Scary Movie’ which drew an average 1.49 million family and friends. Murdoch’s Minions are numb. They do not have a clue to what America wants. However, we can all say in unison, nobody wants to see ‘Scary Movie’ night. All you have to do is look at the trailer above. Minions. Get a clue. Look at it BEFORE you put it on your schedule.

The CW

The Little Network That Couldn’t tried and failed. At 8P, it began an all ‘Flash’ evening as the first rerun of ‘The Flash’ finished with an average 1.33 million viewers and an 0.8/1. At 9P, another rerun of ‘The Flash’ finished with an average 1.20 million viewers and an 0.8/1. btw…if you want to hear great audio engineering and sound design, take a look and listen to the above link.

Late Night

At 1135P, NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’, with guest Robert De Niro, Ariana Grande and musical guest Duran Duran finished #1 with 3.0/8; CBS’ ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ finished with 2.3/6; and ABC’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ finished #3 with 2.1/6.

At 1235A, NBC’s ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ with guests Josh Brolin, Governor Martin O’Malley and Judd Winick finished with a 1.4/5 in metered-market households, and produced a classic called ‘Back In My Day’. ABC’s ‘Nightline’ finished with a 1.3/4. beat CBS’s “Late Late Show” (1.1/4) and CBS’ ‘Late Late Show with James Corden’ with guests Alice Cooper and Pauley Perrette finished with a 1.1/4. At 135A, without competition, NBC’s ‘Last Call with Carson Daly’ finished with an average 0.8/4.

For The Record

NBC finished #1 Tuesday with an average 9.760 million viewers and a 6.6/11. CBS finished #2 with an average 5.340 million viewers and a 3.7/6. ABC finished with an average 5.015 million viewers and a 3.5/6. Univision finished #4 with a 1.3/2.

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).
