NBC Wins 2013-14 TV Season Based on Shows’ Ratings
The current logo for the National Broadcasting Company (NBC), an American commercial broadcasting television network headquartered in New York City’s Rockefeller Center, which was formed as a radio network by the Radio Corporation of America in 1926. A simplification of an earlier and more complicated logo originally created for color broadcasts, this logo was created by Steff Geissbuhler of Chermayeff & Geismar to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the network in 1986, and since then, has become one of the most recognizable logos in the world.

Finally, after 10 years, the network NBC has won the season-long demo and has defeated last year’s champion, CBS. Read on to learn more about how NBC won the 2013-14 TV Season based on its shows’ ratings.

According to TV Line, NBC has an average of 2.7 during primetime among their adult audience. So far, this is the network’s biggest demo again in 26 years. Next to them is Fox. Their biggest gains were on their Tuesday and Wednesday shows, which was up by 15 percent. And thankfully, “The Blacklist” raised their rating percentage every Monday, which is also the season’s no.1 drama.

NBC reportedly grew 33 percent to an average of 9.3 million, which guaranteed them the second spot after CBS. This is the first time in 10 years that the network has gained a spot above no.4 and this is their largest gross gain so far.

The network also benefited from their season coverage of the Sochi Olympics. But, even without their sports coverage, NBC can still pull through to be the winner this 2013-2014 TV Season.

So far, the network’s accomplishments include finishing number one on 4 of the 7 nights of the week, the most nightlong wins for the network, with a total of 87 wins, which is more than any network claimed this season or even last season.

The most watched shows that gained such solid ratings are “Sunday Night Football,” “The Voice,” “The Blacklist” and “Grimm.”

However, according to Digital Spy, when it comes to the total number of viewers, CBS takes the no.1 spot with 10.7 million but this has gone down from 11.7 million, while CBS came second when it comes to the 18-49 demo with 2.4 followed by ABC and Fox, which were third and fourth with adults in the 18-49 demographic.

It’s great that NBC won the 2013-14 TV Season based on its shows’ ratings. This is such amazing news for NBC and with all the wonderful shows that they have been providing their viewers, they might even make it as no.1 next season! However, it’s going to be a very tight competition because other networks are releasing and currently showing new shows and even old shows that have captured the hearts of many.
