NBC managed to place nine shows in the Nielsen top ten last week, including the series premiere of Go On (at No. 10) and the season premiere of The Voice (at No. 4), but CBS, with a slate of mostly reruns, remained the most-watched network overall. NBC, however, did grab the top spot among 18-49 […]

RNC CAN’T CRACK TOP 20 IN RATINGS

September 6, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

So far as the individual broadcast networks were concerned, their expensive coverage of the Republican National Convention was pretty much a bust. No network managed to place a single night of convention coverage in the top 20. That list was dominated primarily by reruns, reality shows, and ABC’s Saturday Night Football.

Probably far more people were preparing their barbeque grills Sunday night than watching television. Virtually everything on the air was a repeat, with the exception of CBS’s Big Brother, which averaged 5.5 million viewers. The only show that grabbed a bigger audience was a repeat of 60 Minutes, which attracted 6.7 million viewers. Every other […]

And NBC still had three shows among the top ten, including the top two, the Tuesday edition of America’s Got Talent and Sunday’s NFL preseason opener between Indianapolis and Pittsburgh. The Wednesday edition […]
