TV viewership climbing with people stuck at home by virus

With millions of people stuck at home due to the coronavirus outbreak, television viewership is on the rise. Broadcast networks see their 8 p.m. shows doing well in part, they suspect, because many are being shown after expanded local news. Fox's “Last Man Standing” last week, for example, was up 50 percent in live viewing, Nielsen said. (Michael Becker/Fox via AP)
