[via press release from CBS]

218 MILLION UNDUPLICATED VIEWERS HAVE WATCHED CBS THIS SEASON

Network Is Averaging Nearly 82 Million Unduplicated Viewers per Week in Primetime

"60 Minutes" Has Largest Unduplicated Viewership for the Season at Over 80 Million

"The Big Bang Theory" Is #1 Among Scripted Shows, with 51.7 Million

"God Friended Me" Leads Among New Shows at 50.6 Million

CBS' reach (or "cume" audience) over the first 17 weeks of the 2018-2019 broadcast season is 218 million viewers - the most of any broadcaster. "Cume audience" is defined as the number of unduplicated viewers that are exposed to a television program across a stated period of time. These numbers include viewers who watched at least six minutes of a given telecast of a program - a much higher threshold than many digital companies.

In primetime, the CBS Television Network averages 81.90 million unduplicated viewers each week.

"The most popular series on TV reside almost exclusively on the broadcast networks, and they are watched in massive numbers with independently verified measurement," said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. "These series resonate with tens of millions of viewers on a daily and weekly basis, year round."

Among all regular series reaching the most unduplicated viewers this season (based on Nielsen "cume" audience figures - see chart below), CBS has the top show, 60 MINUTES (80.14m); the top scripted show, THE BIG BANG THEORY (51.65m); and the #1 new show, GOD FRIENDED ME (50.62m).

In addition, CBS continues its 11-consecutive-year reign as "America's Most-Watched Network" by leading in Total Viewers using the traditional P2+ (Total Viewers, Average Minute Audience) metric across all networks during primetime.
