Pursuit Channel Grows Primetime/Weekends Audiences


Glenwood, AL – Nielsen analytics for the recently completed first quarter of 2018 illustrate a winning performance for Pursuit Channel in primetime and on weekends. The report confirmed that Pursuit content, which is created by one of the world’s most notable lineups in outdoor broadcasting, outpaced expectations as a perpetual viewership machine, one capable of incrementally growing audiences during notoriously weak periods of outdoor television usage.

With destination programming from the likes of Jimmy Houston Outdoors, Final Draw, The High Road with Keith Warren and American Airgunner, Pursuit Channel maintained a very solid 0.05 CVG AA%* throughout the quarter during weekday primetime (8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.).

Weekend primetime (8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.) schedules led by Drake’s Migration Nation, The Zone, Mossy Oak Country Roots and Winchester and Drury’s Natural Born helped spike America’s favorite outdoor network  to a 0.07 CVG AA% during the same period.

“High-quality outdoor entertainment, plus a big, expanding universe and Nielsen analytics continue to collectively run out in front as one of the very best values across the entire spectrum of outdoor media,” said Pursuit CEO Rusty Faulk. “Day in and day out, week after week, this network provides best-in-class bang for buck.”

“Pursuit knocked it out of the park with a 0.08 CVG AA% to end the weekend daytime category (9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) of the quarter,” said Greg Sugg of Moose Media. “But that our weekends are also so well received is really no surprise.  Flyrod Chronicles, Louisiana Outdoor Adventures TV, Sporting Dog Adventures, Destination: Baja Sur… education, conservation, down home fun makes us the weekend go-to destination for millions of family oriented hunters, fishers and shooters.”
