Fox Lead Continues to Grow, Univision Near CBS in 18-34
Fox continues to expand its lead in all TV ratings category for the TV season to date. I think the odds that CBS can catch Fox for the average viewer total for the entire season is looking increasingly unlikely.
On the other side of the spectrum for CBS is the potential that Univision might finish ahead of the Tiffany network in Adults 18-34 for the entire season. Univision currently trails CBS in the category by only an average of 140,000 viewers. CBS's new scripted shows appearing soon are likely to prevent them from slipping back, but it would be quite interesting for Les Moonves if they didn't. The chart below shows Season to Date TV ratings through the week of March 9 (24th week of the broadcast season).
