The Discovery Channel's live coverage of Nik Wallenda's Skywire – the daredevil's attempt to cross the Grand Canyon via high wire – peaked at just under 13 million viewers Sunday night.
To give you a point of reference as to how big that audience is, the four major broadcast networks (Fox, CBS, NBC, ABC) brought in a total of 15.5 million viewers. It's safe to say Discovery won the night.
The successful stunt averaged 10.68 million viewers from 9:10-10:20pm EDT. This provided a huge boost to the premiere of the new series Naked & Afrais, which held on to 4.16 million viewers.
