Grammys Help CBS Stay No. 1 for TV Network Watch-Time

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 January 29 through February 4 — head over to TVREV to see the program ranking and get insights about the top shows by watch-time.

For the third week in a row, CBS is the most-watched TV network. It captured a 7.34% viewership share, a decrease from the previous week’s 9.92%. The 66th Annual Grammy Awards was the top program by watch-time, followed by The Price Is Right, CBS Mornings and PGA Tour golf.

A few more insights about the most-watched networks: 

  • ABC moves into second place with 6.39% of minutes watched, an increase from the previous week’s 6.04% thanks in part to the 2024 NFL Pro Bowl Games.
  • The CW jumps from No. 18 to No. 14 week-over-week, spurred by the first LIV Golf event of 2024 that took place Feb. 2-4 in Mayakoba, Mexico.
  • Discovery was the sole week-over-week ranking newcomer, landing at No. 24 with viewership fueled by Homestead Rescue, Expedition Unknown and Moonshiners.
