Consumers watch TV in big numbers during the summer.

June 1, 2016

Television’s powerful reach extends into the summer months with strong viewing levels each night of the week. Nearly 30 million viewers tune in night after night during primetime providing a key window for retailers, movie studies, etc…






Ad-supported TV delivers over 30 million viewers in primetime, in 5 out of 7 days of the week. In addition, more than three-quarters of consumer’s viewing is with live TV which is ideal for time sensitive marketing campaigns. In fact, across the age spectrum, the majority of content is viewed “live” and not in delayed mode.






During summer months, nearly 60% of TV viewing extends outside the covered “Primetime” daypart. Throughout the day, time spent with TV remains strong with new premium branded TV content comprising the bulk of summer schedules. Ad-supported TV still delivers over 2 trillion impressions during the summer season.





During the summer, time spent with ad-supported TV content extends beyond the TV set as more people are staying up to date with their favorite shows by watching TV content on table/smartphone devices.
