Big week for Peacock to strut

0

Two nights of NFL football and two nights of “America’s Got Talent” put NBC well ahead of the pack in the ratings race for week 51 of the nearly finished TV season. It is not often, though, that the stars can be in such an alignment for the Peacock Network. Univision was #2 in the big money 18-49 demo, but well back.


In Households NBC scored an average 6.7 rating and 7 share, followed by CBS 4.1/7, ABC 3.1/5, Fox 2.6/4, Univision 2.1/3, Ion 0.8/1, CW 0.6/1, Telemundo 0.5/1, TeleFutura 0.3/0, Azteca America and EstrellaTV 0.1/0.

In 18-49 NBC was at 3.9/11, Univision 1.7/5, Fox 1.6/5, CBS 1.5/4, ABC 1.4/4, Telemundo 0.4/1, CW and Ion 0.3/1, TeleFutura 0.2/1 and EstrellaTV and Azteca America 0.1/0.
