CBS WILL FINISH THIS SEASON AS AMERICA'S MOST-WATCHED NETWORK FOR 11TH STRAIGHT YEAR

Network Wins 21 out of Season's 33 Weeks to-Date, Including Last 11 in a Row

Wins Crown for 16th Time in 17 Years

CBS Also Tops in Adults 25-54 and One-Tenth off Lead in Adults 18-49

#1 Network Has Reached Nearly 240 Million Viewers This Season Across All Dayparts

CBS will finish the 2018-2019 season as "America's Most Watched Network" for the 11th straight season and for the 16th time in 17 years. So far, CBS has won an incredible 21 out of 33 weeks this year, including the last 11 in a row, to take the crown yet again. Impressively, even when discounting the Network's massive Super Bowl audience, it will still win the season by 16%.

CBS is now averaging 9.03 million viewers, +1.7 million viewers, or +23% ahead of second place NBC (versus 7.32), +59% ahead of ABC (5.68m) and +64% ahead of Fox (5.49m). All numbers are according to Nielsen most current ratings through May 12. The Network also is first in adults 25-54 (2.2, tie) and only -0.1 behind in adults 18-49 (1.5).

According to Nielsen NPower (6+ minute qualifier), CBS has reached 239 million viewers this season across all dayparts, beating its closest competitor (NBC) by +9.4 million viewers.

The following are some additional highlights of CBS' winning 2018-2019 season:
