Each week, we highlight the most-watched shows and networks using insights from Inscape, the currency-grade smart TV ACR data provider and data technology division of Vizio. Data is linear, live TV only and includes all episode types (new and reruns). Rankings are by percent share duration (i.e., time spent watching). Here's a look at the top 25 networks by viewership share for October 23-29 — head over to TVREV to see the program ranking and get insights about the top shows by watch-time.

CBS takes first place for the second week in a row, capturing 8.38% of minutes watched — a slight decrease from the previous week’s 8.62%. Football, news and The Price is Right were some of the programming fueling watch-time. 

Additional insights around the most-watched networks from October 23-29:

  • Thanks in part to the 2023 World Series, Fox moves from fourth to third place week-over-week, with a total viewership share of 7.04%, a notable increase from its previous 5.99%.
  • Hallmark Channel breaks into the top ten with 2.34% of minutes watched (up from No. 11 and 1.99% last week), fueled by its slate of original Christmas movies. Sister network Hallmark Movies & Mysteries also rises up the ranks, taking No. 17 with its 1.09% viewership share also driven by holiday programming. 
  • TNT jumps from No. 23 to No. 13 week-over-week thanks mostly to NBA games.
