Program Ratings & Rankings


Week 41: July 1-7, 2013

  • Nationally, Broadcast took 81 of the top 100 Adult 25-54 Total Day programs.
  • The week of July 4th is typically a light-television week, but there were still some programs that caught the viewer’s attention. Under The Dome was the top program with a 3.9 RA25-54. Reality-favorites including America’s Got Talent, Big Brother (3X), The Bachelorette and American Ninja Warrior were all in the top 10, and, as American as “warm apple pie,” the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks came in at #9 with a 2.1 RA25-54.
  • Cable’s highest rated program was TNT’s Sprint Cup Racing from Daytona coming in at #8 (2.1 RA25-54).
  • Program of the Week: The Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks delivered a 2.1 RA25-54, with local LPM markets delivering as much as 150% greater. On a household rating, it delivered a 4.4 HH Rating, with New York (where it was based) delivering a 10.9 HH Rating. 
  • Market of the Week: It comes as no surprise that New York led the way in HH Ratings with the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks, but coming in number 2, our market of the week, Greenville-Spartanburg-Asheville-Anderson, NC-SC, delivered an 8.7 HH Rating taking the 7th spot in the market.
