SCIENCE CHANNEL SOARS AGAIN WITH HIGHEST RATED MAY IN ITS HISTORY IN KEY DEMOS
Marks Fourth Time in 2018 That Science Eclipses
Monthly Ratings Records Among Adults 25-54
(New York) - Science Channel's 2018 hot streak continued last month as the network enjoyed its highest rated May ever in Primetime among Adults/Men 25-54 and Total Viewers P2+. This marks the fourth time in five months that Science Channel has broken monthly ratings records among Adults 25-54 in Primetime, with February being the exception.
In total day, the month was also the highest rated May ever for the network with Adults/Men 25-54 and Total Viewers P2+, and the 12th consecutive month of year over year ratings growth among Adults 25-54.
May's surge was driven in part by the popular Tuesday night engineering series MYSTERIES OF THE ABANDONED that is Science Channel's most watched series of 2018. Wednesday nights was the most watched night of the week thanks to premiere episodes of BATTLEBOTS, up 52% over 2017, and Sunday nights were up 20% vs. 2017, with freshman series DEADLY INTELLIGENCE leading the way.
