Weekly Ratings Update

July 10, 2012 by Marc Berman in Highlights with 0 Comments

Three networks…CBS, NBC and Fox…dominated this quiet holiday week, according to the Live Plus Same Day results from Nielsen, with NBC’s rare victory in adults 25-54. And that, of course, is a result of America’s Got Talent, which may be down but is far from out. CBS was the most-watched, while Fox was No. 1 in adults 18-49 and adults 18-34. Aside from Fox, which was close to year-ago levels, erosion was the noticeable observation, with ABC, CBS, NBC and The CW all down by double-digit percentages.
