MORE PEOPLE WATCHED “THE NFL ON CBS” THAN ANY OTHER NETWORK FOR ENTIRE 2013 REGULAR-SEASON

 

 

More people watched THE NFL ON CBS games than any other network in 2013, based on a cumulative analysis of Nielsen data.  CBS has led all networks in Persons 2 + cume viewing in eight of the last 10 NFL regular-seasons.   

 

Through 17 weeks of the 2013 regular-season (September 5-December 29, 2013), THE NFL ON CBS regular-season games were seen in all-or-part by an estimated 164.1 million viewers, 8% higher than NBC’s 151.4 million viewers, 2% higher than FOX’s 161.4 million viewers, and 60% higher than ESPN’s 102.8 million.

 

THE NFL ON CBS viewership for the 2013 regular season is up 4% vs. the 2012 season’s 157.5 million.

 

The cumulative audience is based on Total Viewers (Persons 2+) who have watched at least six minutes of NFL game coverage since the start of the 2013 regular-season.

    I think this has more to do with the games than the network.

  • Jagger Dagger

    Agreed.
    Nobody watches the actual game because of what channel it is on.

    As far as pre-game shows however, I tend to watch ESPN or NFL Network than the broadcast networks coverage.

  • C.Harvey

    Makes sense, CBS generally does the local games, Fox does the secondary regional games, getting less viewers while people watch CBS, NBC and ESPN do primetime games that not every one is interested in
