Fox and CBS Gain Eyes in Week No. 30

NEW YORK: Fox had its first prime-time audience uptick of the summer compared to last year. Fox pulled in more eyeballs during prime time during the week ending Aug. 9 compared to last year, according to Wachovia’s weekly “Who’s Watching.” Fox was up 2 percent in all households and 10 percent in the 18-49 demo.

CBS, which has had the most audience growth of the Big Four networks this year, was up 7 percent in prime time for the week and 3 percent in 18-49s, respectively.

Wells Fargo/Wachovia’s ad market update: “The cable upfront is well advanced at this point, and similar to broadcast volumes will probably hold 10 percent point plus of volume for the scatter market, which has improved of late to flattish with 2008 upfront rates. There appears to be some bifurcation in upfront CPMs, with higher-quality networks down in the single digits with lower-quality nets down significantly more.”
