August: Top Attention-Grabbing Shows for Broadcast and Cable

Our passive measurement technology allows us to see which programs are best are capturing eyes-on-screen attention. As the summer comes to a close, we looked back at the entire month of August and found that the following primetime first-run programs ranked the highest on our Attention Index.

Highlights:

  • Game Shows and unscripted programs continue to dominate broadcast viewer attention in summer.
  • Due to more purposeful viewing, cable programs continue to achieve a higher Attention Index than broadcast.
  • AMC’s violent and controversial program “Preacher” topped the cable list for attention.
  • NBC produced three of the top five attention-grabbing broadcast programs.
