In rough Olympics, viewers perked up a bit in second week

NEW YORK – In what was in any other case a tough two weeks in Tokyo for NBC, tv viewers responded — at least a bit — to the U.S. Olympic team’s sturdy general performance in the second 50 percent of the Video games.

NBC’s primary-time broadcast viewership for the 2nd week was down 46% in contrast to the Rio de Janeiro Olympics of 2016, the Nielsen corporation mentioned. In the initial week, NBC was down 52% compared to Rio.

Very last Tuesday, the 14.3 million people who viewed the Game titles on NBC was actually up from the 14 million that had watched a week earlier from Tokyo. Generally, viewership goes down in the 2nd 7 days of the Olympics as viewers start out to tire of the nightly level of competition.

NBC claimed the Tokyo online games averaged 15.6 million in prime-time viewership when the principal community, cable shops and streaming are added in. Which is down 42% from the Olympics in Brazil.

The Tokyo streaming intake of 5.5 billion minutes was up 22% about Rio, NBC reported.


For the week, NBC averaged 10.6 million viewers in prime time. CBS had 2.3 million, Fox experienced 2.1 million, ABC experienced 1.9 million, Univision experienced 1.3 million, Ion Tv experienced 1.1 million and Telemundo had 960,000.

ABC’s “World Information Tonight” gained the evening news scores race with and common of 7.4 million viewers. NBC’s “Nightly News” had 6.9 million and the “CBS Night News” had 4.7 million.
