May: Top Attention-Grabbing Shows for Broadcast and Cable

Broadcast Season Finales Capture Viewer Attention in May

Transitioning to warmer weather doesn’t mean we stop paying attention to our favorite shows. Last month, season finales and reality TV topped the list of May’s most attention-grabbing TV programs.

Highlights:

  • Superstore’s revealing season finale earned it the #1 ranking for attention among broadcast shows. All five broadcast shows had season finales during the month.
  • Reality programs drove strong attention on cable, landing three of the top five cable shows.
  • E! News is again one of the top attention-grabbing cable programs. Could the new Duchess of Sussex be responsible?
