via press release:

NBC has won week six of the 2013-14 season in adults 18-49 and has now won five of six weeks this season, finishing #2 only once behind a week in which Fox carried World Series coverage on four of seven nights.

 

Sunday Night Football” is #1 for the week on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-49 and the top three non-news / non-sports telecasts on those nets were the Monday and Tuesday editions of “The Voice” and Monday’s “The Blacklist,” which was also the week’s #1 drama on the Big 4 nets

 

Sunday Night Football” is #1 for the week on the Big 4 nets in adults 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54; men 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54; plus teens 12-17, and Monday’s “The Voice” is #1 on those nets in women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54.

 

Through six weeks of the new season, NBC is equaling its year-ago 3.1 rating in adults 18-49, to match the network’s highest six-week average in six years (since 2007, 3.5).

 

NBC is leading the season by 0.4 of a point or 15% (with a 3.1 rating vs. Fox’s 2.7), the biggest margins in four years for any net six weeks into the season (since baseball-boosted Fox led by 0.5 of a point or 16% in 2009).  NBC is also leading the season among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-34, adults 25-54 and other key demos.

 

In total viewers, NBC ranks #2 for the season, its highest total-viewer ranking six weeks into the season in 11 years (since 2002).

 

NBC’s season average of 9.6 million viewers is its biggest overall audience six weeks into the season in seven years (since 2006, 10.3 million).  Versus one year ago, NBC is up 11% season to date in total viewers (9.6 million vs. 8.6 million).
