Big Four Numbers Down Year-to-Year in Week No. 27
NEW YORK: Fewer folks watched the Big Four broadcast networks during prime time for the week ending July 19 than the same period mid-summer last year. Fox, ABC, CBS and NBC were all down slightly among all households as well as people 18 to 49. Only CBS retained its season-to-date gain over last year in all households.

Wachovia’s ad market update: “The cable and network TV upfronts remain at a standstill with no change to our view on CPMs--TV networks down low- to mid-singles and top tier cable CPMs down low-singles. We don’t expect much commentary from Viacom’s 2Q results next Tuesday given the lack of demand in the marketplace.”

“Who’s Watching” tracks the weekly and season-to-date, year-to-year change in average household viewing data for broadcast (live plus same day) and audience data for cable nets (live plus same day); STD is prime time unless otherwise noted, e.g. Food and HDTV.
