ESPN Stays On Top Cable Primetime Ratings; Election Week Lifts Fox News To #2 In Viewership
As should be expected for the rest of the football season, ESPN stayed on top both primetime adults 18-49 ratings and average viewership. With a big boost from mid-term elections, Fox News moved into second place for average primetime viewership for the week. USA finished third in primetime average viewership and second in adults 18-49 even though its biggest scripted shows are still off the air. Such is the power of WWE RAW and NCIS repeats.
SpongeBob doesn’t care who was elected last week, he’s not subject to term limits or checks and balances, and he always keeps Nickelodeon at the top of the total day average viewership rankings.
