National TV ad spending rose 3.3% in the second quarter — but much of those gains went to lower CPM cable TV shows.

Standard Media Index — now modeling the entire national TV ad market based on data from 70% of media agency bookings — says the national TV ad market was driven by cable networks, which rose 6.5% during the period.

Broadcast national TV was flat from the second quarter a year ago — with the top four broadcast networks slipping 2.5%.
