THIS IS NOT ENTIRELY SHOCKING NEWS BUT KPIX HAD A RECORD-SETTING WEEK AS ITS CBS TV STATION/ HOST STATUS FOR SUPERBOWL 50 BAY AREA DELIVERED RECORD NUMBERS...
*February Sweeps add to solid numbers
*6PM --doubled its previous numbers from 2/15-- Firm #1 over KGO, KTVU, and KNTV
*5PM --A total "kill" as a news staffer put it.
*11 PM: Dominant numbers slaughter KGO and KNTV
*Game Day/Feb. 7: This goes without saying but KPIX ruled the day from about 11 AM until the end of the game, but contrary to national numbers (when many viewers skipped the game out of disinterest) here, locally, KPIX commanded the Bay Area night right to the end of its post-game summary. The numbers, even with SB assistance, are astounding. Maybe the highest numbers in PIX/CBS-SF history.
We don't have the entire breakdown --(we'll know more specifics soon enough); suffice to say, PIX did more than they had to do and quite unexpectedly, did a whole lot better.
Bruno Cohen (GM) and Dan Rosenheim (ND/VP) are chugging a lot of champagne.
