NBC Falls to Fifth Place for Sweeps

at . Comments

Remember Revolution? The Voice? NBC actually winning November Sweeps just a few months ago?

That probably feels like decades to the network now.

Thanks to the complete bombs of Smash Season 2, Do No Harm and Deception, NBC actually finished February Sweeps in fifth place for the first time ever. Yes, FIFTH place. One spot below Univision.

Between January 31 through February 19, a key time for advertisers, NBC finished with a 1.2 rating among 18-49-years old, the business' key demographic.

Univision, meanwhile, posted a 1.5.

With no NFL football until September, and The Voice or Revolution not returning until late March, the network should continue to struggle for at least another month.
