For Saturday, September 19, 2015 (Posted on September 20, 2015)
The Tiffany Network decided to put three of their biggest programs, all reruns against all comers. And it worked. At 8P, a rerun of last season’s finale, ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ finished with an average 3.54 million viewers. At 9P, a rerun of ‘Criminal Minds’ upped the ante with an increase to 3.635 million viewers. Then at 10P, a rerun of ’48 Hours’ finished with an average 3.73 million viewers. With a stead increase all night long, it made for a very happy group of network affiliates as it led the night’s top programming into the local news.
The #1 Hispanic Network in America finished #2 on all of television Saturday evening. The broadcast of ‘Sábado Gigante ¡Hasta Siempre!’ (‘Giant Saturday–Forever!’), the final episode of the longest running variety show on television, provided viewers an emotion-filled evening celebrating the show that has been a Saturday night tradition in millions of Hispanic households around the globe for more than 53 years. ‘Sábado Gigante ¡Hasta Siempre!’ reached 6.7 million Total Viewers 2+ who tuned in to all or part of the three and half hour Live broadcast. The giant show averaged 3.4 million Total Viewers 2+
The Alphabet Network had a big Pac-12 college football game. At 8P, ‘Stanford vs USC’ was a big upset as the Cardinal defeated the Trojans, 41-31 in Los Angeles, CA, and drew an average 2.65 million viewers. Pancho was happy in the mountains.
The Animal Network of Broadcast decided to air a cross-sectional college football game featuring the California Golden Bears against the Texas Longhorns from Austin, TX. At 8P, ‘Cal vs Texas’, the Golden Bears’ eaked out a victory as the Longhorn’s kicker missed the extra point, 45-44 which drew an average 2.22 million viewers.
The Peacock Network tried to air reruns of one of its more popular reality show all night long. But guess what? Reality does not rerun very well. After all, reality programming is for ‘that moment’ not for a rerun ‘later moment’. Sarnoff Sity found that out on Saturday. At 8P, a rerun of ‘American Ninja Warrior’, throughout prime time, finished with an average 2.027 million viewers.
For The Record
CBS finished #1 Saturday with an average 3.66 million viewers. Univision finished #2 Saturday with an average 3.4 million viewers. ABC finished #3 with an average 2.65 million viewers. FOX finished with an average 2.22 million viewers. NBC finished with an average 2.08 million viewers.

Who Watches TV Today? Are They Multitaskers?
Multitasking is a very big deal for TV watchers, according to an article by Wayne Friedman in Television Daily News, and it doesn’t matter if viewers are watching live, time-shifted programming or streaming through the TV set.
For each hour of prime time watched, 70% of viewing comes with “other activities”. Other activities are:
. 69% for live TV viewing
. 70% for time-shifted DVR viewing
. 71% for streaming through a TV set.
The new study comes from GfK, a business and consumer research company.
The research company says multitasking has remained stable for more a little more than a decade with 75% of respondents had “other activities” while watching TV in 2004. This year, it has increased to 77%. Men (74%) are more likely to be multitaskers than women (64%). Young TV viewers 18-34 multitask more in prime time (73%) than older viewers. Each of those groups, 35 to 49 & 50 to 64 years old both registered a 66% multitask mark.
The most common multitasking activity across the three hours of prime-time TV are:
. Talking with others, whether in person or on a phone, averages of 24% of viewers.
. Internet use is 29%.
. Eating and snacking is also big, 30%, but only in the first hour of prime time. That activity drops to 12% in the third hour of prime time.
The study says those who have “unplanned” TV viewing tend to multitask more (75%) than those who plan (64%). It says advertisers need to keep experimenting in ways to reach their consumers on more than one screen. The survey, from April 23 through May 5, 2015, came from representative in about 97% of U.S. households (1,010 persons 13-64, randomly selected from the overall pool of active panel members). Only one respondent per household was allowed. The cooperation rate among the assigned sample was 43%, with the average time to complete the survey of 25 minutes.

Consumer Satisfaction With The In-Store Shopping Experience
About three-quarters of the almost 2,000 shoppers surveyed around the world by Zebra Technologies are at least somewhat satisfied with shopping in stores, per a recent study. But satisfaction rates are lower for product prices (58%) and the availability of coupons, special offers and discounts (51%). The study results indicate that product availability is the top aspect of the in-store experience that influences greater spending, while the most compelling reason for shopping in-store is to browse or experience the physical product.
The survey was conducted from January 6-February 18 2015 by Research Now, in the following countries: United States (588), Canada (137), Singapore (105), Australia (114), UK (167), Italy (119), Spain (125), France (146), Germany (125), China (118), Japan (112), and Thailand (99).
