2019 Was OUR Year – USA Network Is Once Again #1!
January 3, 2020
Big news for USA Network as the new decade kicks off: The channel ends 2019 as the #1 cable entertainment network in the P18-49 demo for the third consecutive year, and the P25-54 demo for the second consecutive year!
Several key series boosted the network to the top spot. WWE Monday Night RAW was the #1 Cable Entertainment Program on Mondays, as well as the #1 Most Social Primetime Series in all of television.
It was an especially standout year for USA’s unscripted series. Looking across the television industry, Chrisley Knows Best was the #1 VOD Cable Unscripted Series, and Straight Up Steve Austin the #1 New Unscripted Cable Series for Men (18-49, 25-54).
Additionally on USA, Temptation Island sizzled as the network’s #1 New Series (Scripted or Unscripted) and Miz & Mrs did an absolutely awesome job as its #1 Returning Unscripted series. Treadstone crushed as USA’s #1 New Drama, while Queen of the South was its #1 Returning Drama.
USA readies itself for another standout year, kicking off with the debut of The Biggest Loser on January 28 and the return of Miz & Mrs on January 29. February 6 will see the premiere of Sam Esmail’s Briarpatch, as well as a new story of critically-acclaimed thriller The Sinner.
The wins solidified USA as a #1 Network in Prime for 14 consecutive years.
