WREG Tops Memphis Ratings


WREG, the CBS affiliate in Memphis came out on top on the ratings in the February book.

Even though competitor WMC had the Olympic games, the station was still not able to pass WREG in the numbers.

WREG was handily out front in the ratings at 4PM and 5PM. At 6PM the race tightens up a bit, but WREG wins by about a half a rating point.

In the late news you would expect WMC to win with having the Olympics as their lead in.  They did not.

WREG took a lead in rating of 7.1 and just about doubled it to a 14 rating. WMC took their 10.0 rating lead in and dropped to a 9.8.

Clearly WREG is the ratings leader in Memphis.
