Peacock Nightmare: NBC Falls to Fifth Place
After riding high at the end of 2012, it’s all come crashing down: NBC falls to fifth place in the latest sweeps rankings, dropping behind Spanish language station Univision after ranking in first place in November.
The network has made a well-publicized drop down in rankings, pushing out shows like 30 Rock and Community that are critical darlings but draw minimal viewers. And with their new stalwarts like The Voice and Revolution on hiatus, it may be a while before NBC bounces back. NBC falls to fifth behind no. 1 network CBS, as well as ABC, Fox, and Univision.
