With more Top 20 series than any other network for total viewers and the core A25-54 demo, Global’s primetime offering wins the night for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and is tracking to become primetime’s most-watched network this fall.
Over on Corus’ streaming platforms, Global’s newcomers Ghosts, NCIS: Hawai’i and CSI: Vegas, all land in the Top 20 on STACKTV and The Global TV App. Taking the lead as the most-streamed primetime series on both platforms is Survivor, with the premiere becoming the most-watched episode in the Global TV App’s history.
