Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. From fourth quarter 2012 to fourth-quarter 2013, the hours consumers spent watching online video grew 30%. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

For Thursday, February 5, 2015 (Posted on February 6, 2015)
The Tiffany Network stood tall on Thursday with its veteran line up to remain #1 on the night. It pulled out it biggest comedy gun to offset NBC’s new Thursday night lineup. At 8P, the biggest comedy in the world, ‘The Big Bang Theory’ delivered 17.090 million viewers and a 10.2/6, as it was the #1 program of the evening. At 830P, ‘Mom’ had 11.651 million viewers and a 6.8/11 which also finished on top of its time slot. At 9P, ‘Two and A Half Men’ produced 9.387 million viewers and a 5.6/9 for a strong #3 in the time slot. At 930P, a rerun of ‘The Big Bang Theory’, replacing the failed ‘The McCarthy’s’, drew 8.255 million viewers and a 4.9/8. At 10P, ‘Elementary’ drew 7.867 million viewers and a 4.9/8.
The Alphabet Network took on all challengers on Thursday and its ‘soap-like’ lineup of programs took the evening. At 8P presented ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and drew 7.977 million viewers and a 6.2/10. At 9P, ‘Scandal’ pulled in 9.582 million viewers and a 7.5/12. At 10P, ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ delivered 8.344 million viewers and a 6.2/11, also #1 in its time slot.
The Peacock Network introduced it strongest potential line up in years on Thursday. With much ballyhoo, at 8P, Sunday’s rerun of ‘The Blacklist’ which aired after the Super Bowl to huge numbers, delivered 5.127 million viewers and a 3.7/6. But at 9P, the newest episode of ‘The Blacklist’, its first on Thursday night, attempted to take control of the time slot and drew 10.111 million viewers and a 6.8/11. At 10P, the new series ‘Allegiance’ in its premiere died as it drew 4.983 million viewers and a 3.4/6 in an episode that tried to out do FX’s ‘The Americans’. This Soviet sleep-cell based show was interesting but will we watch it on a continuing basis? Probably not considering the competition. As a result, the suits at Sarnoffville simply messed up Mondays where ‘The Blacklist’ was nearly always #1 at 10P and now being shifted to the middle of the schedule on Thursday, 30 Rock nearly finished fourth. Great Thinking.
The Animal Network of Broadcast had at 8P, ‘American Idol’ and it drew 9.650 million viewers and a 6.7/11. At 9P, the new series, ‘Backstrom’ delivered 3.642 million viewers and a 2.6/4.
The Top Hispanic Network In America brought in another 3+ million viewers into the fold on Friday. At 8P, ‘Mi Corazon es Tuyo’ drew 3.465 million viewers for the top program on the network this Thursday. At 9P, ‘Hasta el Fin del Mundo’ pulled in slightly less with 3.422 million viewers. At 10P, ‘Que Te Perdone Dios’ pulled in 2.815 million viewers.
The Little Network That Couldn’t didn’t. At 8P, ‘The Vampire Diaries’ had 1.615 million viewers and a 1.4/2. At 9P, ‘Reign’ did not as it pulled in 966,000 viewers and a 0.8/1.

How To Attract Millennial Twitter Followers
Want to get millennials to follow you on Twitter? Offer a coupon. According to fall 2014 research by the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Center for Marketing Research, US millennials were most likely to follow a brand or company on Twitter to get a coupon or discount, cited by 85%. Following brands to receive coupons and discounts was more common on Twitter than on Facebook or Pinterest.
Millennials were also interested in supporting brands they liked, a reason to follow for nearly 80%. Beyond discounts and loyalty, no other reason was cited by the majority of respondents, with receiving regular updates from brands the third most popular, called out by 47%.
Millennials who make purchases via Twitter aren’t shelling out too much. Nearly three-quarters of respondents spent $49 or less when buying something via Twitter, compared with 54% who said the same about Facebook. Twitter purchasers were also the most likely to spend less than $20 by at least 10 percentage points, and no respondents spent over $100 through the site.
Twitter’s audience is largely millennial, presenting a good social channel for those targeting this cohort. In September 2014, Pew Research Center found that 37% of US internet users ages 18 to 29 used Twitter, compared with 25% of 30- to 49-year-olds and around 10% of the 50-and-older group. Meanwhile, Cowen and Company found in November 2014 that US internet users spent 23.5 minutes each day with Twitter, compared with an average of 17.1 minutes for the entire adult population. In all, 18- to 29-year-olds accounted for 33% of Twitter users.
