Thursday Final Nationals: Over 13 Million Watch O.J. Simpson Parole Hearing

Another live eviction episode of “Big Brother 19” helped CBS win Thursday night among total viewers (4.75 million), adults 18-49 (1.2 rating/5 share), adults 18-34 (0.8/4) and adults 25-54 (1.5/5).

With multi-network coverage of O.J. Simpson that harkens back to his double-murder trial in 1994-95, his hearing from Nevada to earn parole after a nine-year imprisonment for armed robbery delivered an estimated combined audience of 13.5 million viewers across various TV networks, but not factoring online streaming.

From 1-3 p.m. Eastern time, CBS was the top network for hearing coverage with 3.1 million viewers, followed by ABC (2.3 million), Fox News Channel (1.7 million), NBC (1.9 million), the Fox broadcast network (1.3 million), CNN (1.1 million), HLN (559,000) and ESPN (471,000). (Source: L.A. Times)

Simpson’s hearing viewership fell well short of the 20 million who tuned in to the congressional testimony of former FBI director James Comey on June 8.
