CBS Wins Premiere Week in Total Viewers for the Sixth Conescutive Year
via press release: CBS WINS PREMIERE WEEK FOR THE SIXTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR CBS Is the Only Network Up Versus a Year Ago in Viewers, Adults 18-49 and…
NBC won demo, CBS won viewers. It’s so interesting how CBS skews so “old”.
Their shows are zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz (except the Good Wife)
There is not a single show I watch on CBS and I haven’t in years. I can’t remember a show on CBS that I watched regularly, drama or comedy.
Seriously? They have NCIS, Person of Interest and now Madam Secretary and Scorpion. Their shows are ANYTHING BUT boring. Most of them are action-oriented. And they for hella sure have the best producers and actors. NBC closely follows. ABC is bloody last in this. And numbers don’t lie anyway, they were first.
Also, they WERE the only ones with increases in all sectors. AND ALSO, the 18-49 demo is DYING, LITERALLY because there aren’t nearly as many people composing it as when it was made and that’s what ADVERTISERS are saying. People need to stop looking at that solely… and note how everyone is starting to say that “25-54 numbers were not available” when they don’t have them because everyone is starting to monitor them. THOSE are the numbers of the future, certainly not 18-49. And of course CBS kicks ass in that demo.
That’s all great for them. Still doesn’t make any of their shows of any interest to me. LOL
And now with Scandal being complete shit and on my no-watch list, there’s no shows on ABC I watch either. Used to watch Revenge & OUAT but got bored with them when the writing became ridiculous (though I keep hearing it’s improved for both shows so maybe I’ll go back to them).
I agree with you jellyroll22. CBS shows are boring as fuck, except for The Good Wife. Popular doesn’t necessarily equal interesting. At least not to me.
Mmmm. Exactly. If that was the case, 50 shades of Grey will be the smartest and well-written book ever. Except like you said, being popular doesn’t necessarily means it’s great. I would even say, generally it’s done to please the largest audience so … :-)
Also, a lot can be said about ABC in here but from what I’ve read, Shonda’s shows ( especially HTGAWM ) did wonderful and Once upon a time too. JS.
