Fox, CBS Split Demos, Viewership Wins In First Week of Broadcast Summer
In the first full week of the broadcast television summer (May 25-31), Fox topped the adults 18-49 and adults 18-34 demos and CBS won the adults 25-54 and average viewership titles.
NBC managed third place for viewers, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54, but Univision nipped ahead to place second for adults 18-34 beating all the English broadcasters but Fox. Expect continued relative strength from Univision all summer.
ABC started the summer particularly weakly, finishing fifth in the adults 18-49 and adults 18-34 demos.
Tiny Network Smackdown Update! The tables have been turned and MyNetworkTV beat the CW in every demo we track except adults 18-34 where the two tiny networks tied.
