Miami TV Ratings

South Florida viewers gobbled up all the NFL coverage they could last week, according to the Sun Sentinel’s Johnny Diaz. The network you rarely watch but pay through the nose for (ESPN) came in at number one with 309,000 local viewers followed by WSVN in second place with 220,000 for the NFL game on FOX. Channel 10 and NBC 6 won the weekend with Saturday and Sunday Night Football, ranking third and fourth overall for the week of December 1 through 7th.

WFOR squeezed in 6th place with 60 Minutes at 173,000 thousand viewers and some telenovelas made the most watched list as well.

By the way, almost nobody cared to watch Peter Pan Live on WTVJ. The androgynous green boy, and daughter of NBC newscaster Brian Williams, couldn’t skip past the 91,000 viewers that tuned in. Which if our math is correct is (at most) 5% of the viewers in Miami-Fort Lauderdale.

Add WTVJ reporter Gilma Avalos to the list of those moving out and on to bigger and better things. She’s now with Dallas CBS-owned KTVT which hired her as their new weekend morning anchor and weekday reporter. A native of South Florida Avalos joined NBC 6 three years ago as reporter from News 12 New York.

In a Facebook post Avalos announced her move and thanked viewers for their trust and support.

Big News! After 3 great years in South Florida, I’m heading to the Lone Star State for an exciting opportunity! I’ll be joining the CBS11 team in Dallas-Fort Worth as an anchor and reporter.
Thank you for your trust and support. I am so lucky to have worked in my hometown alongside very kind and talented colleagues. This isn’t goodbye, I’ll be visiting often! Hope you’ll follow me on my journey.

Joe Rose will be hanging up his sports anchor gig hat after 22 years at WTVJ! He’s retiring. From television anyway.

Rose has been a part of the NBC 6 Sports team for 22 years, having joined in 1992. He told NBC 6 he decided it’s time for him to “slow down and get a decent night’s sleep!”. He’s been pulling double duty for more than a decade hosting his own morning radio show on WQAM from 6 to 10am on weekdays, which as you might imagine doesn’t leave a lot of room for sleep.

WTVJ President and General Manager Larry Olevitch says a special send-off is in the works. Joe Rose’ last day on the air at WTVJ NBC6 will be sometime in December.
