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 30 through November 5 — head over to TVREV to see the program ranking and get insights about the top shows by watch-time.

Fox jumps from third to first place week-over-week, accounting for 8.31% of TV watch-time. Viewership was largely driven by NFL and college football, plus the MLB World Series, which wrapped up on Nov. 1 with the Texas Rangers emerging victorious over the Arizona Diamondbacks after four games. 

Additional insights around the most-watched networks from October 30 through November 5: 

  • NFL Network scored 1.51% of watch-time, jumping from No. 37 to No. 13 week-over-week. Its increased viewership share was fueled in part by the NFL Sunday morning matchup between the Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs that took place in Frankfurt, Germany as part of the league’s five-game international series.
  • Paramount Network was another week-over-week ranking newcomer, landing at No. 19 with a 1.09% viewership share. Yellowstone episodes accounted for over 68% of the network’s watch-time. 
  • Holiday programming on Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries continues to fuel increased viewership on both networks, which move up to No. 7 and No. 15, respectively.
