6ABC Wins February Sweeps

From 6AbC:

(Philadelphia, PA) – The U.S. brought home 28 medals from Sochi, and like every ratings period for the past three decades, 6abc Action News wins gold in the Philadelphia television market! The February television ratings period experienced an unusual shake-up with the Olympics, plus three days of no ratings from the power outages (caused by an ice storm). But unprecedented news leader, Action News, still earned gold in nearly every time period and demographic.
At 11 o’clock, Action News had the biggest audience, winning in both Households and the Adults 25-54 demographic.
Once again, the most watched local newscast is Action News at 6, with Jim Gardner. With a 10 household rating, it equaled the total viewers as NBC, CBS, and Fox combined. With a 9 rating, Action News at Noon continues to hold the biggest advantage in the market (the NBC and CBS midday newscasts both post a 3).
6abc also wins gold in late news, with Action News at 11 earning a 9 household rating in February. Even with an Olympic-sized lead-in, NBC falls to second place in the late news ratings. Viewers watching the games in Sochi ultimately came back to 6abc for their favorite news program. In fact, Action News at 11, Action News at 6, and Action News at Noon ALL had higher ratings than NBC10’s late news program.
6abc is also at the top of the podium in the digital space. 2014 has been a record-breaking year for, with six different days delivering more than 5-million page views. Philadelphia’s top local news website earned 99 million total page views in January.
With two days left in February, already has 109 million page views. 6abc is also tops in the social space, with the leading Twitter account (99,000 followers), the top Facebook page (327,000 fans), and the top personality page, Adam Joseph (93,000 fans).
Below is the 6abc medal count for all the local news time periods*** –

Never Too Much Nancy and Tonya

If you still can’t get enough of the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan story, NBC airs Nancy & Tonya Sunday at 7 p.m.

There’s a good article about the subject by Frank Fitzpatrick on


The Tolley Apology Tour

So when Don Tollefson begins his apology tour, which former station will get the first interview – 6 or 29?

Sunday Afternoon Viewing

Catch five episodes of The Brady Bunch every Sunday afternoon on TV Land.

Freaks and Geeks on FXX Every Sunday Morning

If you went to high school in the early 80’s, you will enjoy Freaks and Geeks, which airs Sunday mornings on FXX.

Many of the stars from the 1999 series, James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jason Segal, Linda Cardellini, Busy Phillips, Samm Levine, and John Francis Daley are still going strong today.

The Talk > The View

After watching today’s episode of The Talk, I’m not surprised it is practically tied with rival The View in the ratings.

The Talk’s current lineup of Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler, Sara Gilbert and Sheryl Underwood has more chemistry then the current View lineup of Whoopi Goldberg, Jenny McCarthy, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters, who is scheduled to retire in May.

The View seems to have lost its way with the departures of Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

I wouldn’t be surprised if McCarthy gets the boot in May.

Brady Bunch Reunion on The Talk Thursday at 2 p.m. on CBS

The cast of The Brady Bunch will reunite on The Talk Thursday at 2 p.m. on CBS to celebrate the 80th birthday of Florence Henderson. You will also get your chance to meet the Bradys at The Brady Bunch Convention at The Hilton Meadowlands August 15 – 17.

Another Blow to Local Programming

I’m sad to report that the Comcast Network canceled the last remnants of CN8, It’s Your Call With Lynn Doyle, Voice of Reason with Larry Kane and Art Fennell Reports.

Philly has suffered the loss of many local shows over the years, including the entire CN8 network.
