It may be an all time low.
Monday’s Memorial Day night ratings for broadcast TV fell under 9 million viewers. Basically no one watched regular TV last night.
By contrast, last Monday there were between 35 and 40 million viewers who soaked up ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, and CW. On Thursday there were about 30 million.
But by last night, with nothing on, and everyone grilling in the backyard, our national pastime was abandoned.
Total viewers monitoed by Marc Berman’s Programming Insider, stacked up like this:
CBS: 2.93 million, NBC: 2.05, Fox: 1.62, ABC: 1.25, CW: 534.000.
Not good for Hollywood. Maybe everyone was watching “Stranger Things.”
