For Tuesday, October 27, 2015 (Posted on October 28, 2015)

FOX #1 Tuesday but CBS' 'NCIS' top program.

FOX #1 Tuesday but CBS’ ‘NCIS’ top program.


The Animal Network of Broadcast presented the World Series. At 8P, the ‘2015 MLB World Series’ began with a bag, had a generator malfunction to knock the first game off of the air, saved only by the International feed from MLB Network, and concluded five hours later with a 42 year old pitcher giving up the winning run as the Kansas City Royals defeated the New York Mets, 5-4 as an average 15.26 million viewers watched with a 9.8 rating and a 16 share of the available audience. To beat the power of CBS with ‘NCIS’ on a Tuesday, baseball once again is ‘America’s Pastime’. One year earlier, game six of ‘The 2014 World Series’ on Fox (Kansas City versus San Francisco) averaged a 9.1/14 in the overnights. That translated into 13.37 million viewers, based on the Live + Same Day data.


The Tiffany Network had its power line up against the Fall Classic. At 8P, ‘NCIS’, in an episode titled ‘Viral’ finished as the #1 program on Tuesday, despite the tremendous competition of LIVE baseball, with an average 16.43 million viewers and a 10.5/16 in an unusual episode that ended with Gibbs acting like a father to one of his agents. At 9P, ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ finished with an average 12.95 million viewers and a 8.1/12. At 10P, ‘Limitless’, with Bradley Cooper making a guest appearance, finished with an average 7.55 million viewers and a 4.8/8.


The Peacock Network delivered its power from 9-11P on Tuesday only to be beaten back. At 8P, however, it sent up a lightweight as ‘Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris’ finished with an average 5.25 million viewers and a 3.1/5. Then at 9P, ‘The Voice’ finished with an average 9.95 million viewers and a 7.1/11. At 10P, ‘Chicago Fire’, always a battle proven veteran at 10P, delivered an average 7.82 million viewers and a 5.4/9, to finished #2 in the time slot.


The Alphabet Network really has to rethink its Tuesday lineup if it is to become a factor on this night. At 8P, ‘The Muppets’ finished with an average 4.29 million viewers and a 3.3/5 to finished #3 in the time slot and the top program on the network Tuesday. At 830P, ‘Fresh Off the Boat’ finished with an average 4.05 million viewers and a 2.9/4. At 9P, ‘Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD’ finished with an average 3.83 million viewers and a 2.7/4. While at 10P, the series premiere of ‘Wicked City’ gives evidence of Walt’s Wizard’s non-mastery of the programming science by launching it on the toughest Tuesday of the year. It didn’t stand a chance. It finished with an average 3.30 million viewers and a 2.4/4. Question: How does ‘The Muppets’, mixed with a comic book series mixed with a serial murder series set in the ’80s mesh? Just askin.

The CW

The Little Network That Couldn’t tried really, really hard. At 8P, ‘The Flash’ finished with an average 3.32 million viewers and a 2.6/4. Then at 9P, ‘iZombie’ finished with an average 1.51 million viewers and a 1.0/2.

For The Record

NBC finished #3 with an average 7.34 million viewers and a 5.2/8. ABC finished with an average 3.77 million viewers and a 2.7/4. The CW finished with an average 2.41 million viewers and a 1.8/3.

Mobile Research
How Neuroscience Is Being Used To Power Better Mobile Content
A neuromarketing study from Salesbrain and Facebook has shown that mobile advertising can make a major impact in the areas of attention and positive emotion. Helen Crossley of Facebook stated, ‘Our personal relationships with our mobile devices are having an impact on how our brain perceives messages on those devices, which is good news for marketers because the trend toward more personalized devices and experiences is here to stay even if the screens are getting smaller.’

She states that Facebook ‘recently commissioned Salesbrain to research how people view the same ads on TV and smartphones differently. Marketers are very familiar with TV advertising formats—TV has been the dominant advertising medium for decades and as such our understanding of consumers and their interactions with TV are quite robust. However, in terms of mobile advertising, many advertisers were asking us how they should think about the small screen. So, how is the viewing experience different between the two? We set out to answer that question by using neuromarketing which directly measures the brain’s response to stimulus. We measured attention, distraction, cognitive load and emotional responses to the same ads on TV and mobile, and the results were surprising. We found that the small screen—the mobile screen—is not so small as it packs a powerful punch when it comes to the measures of attention and positive emotions in particular.’ While may felt ‘the bigger the screen the bigger the emotional impact, that didn’t turn out to be the case. We actually found that people feel more positively toward the same advertisement shown on a mobile device versus on television.’

She continued, ‘Our personal relationships with our mobile devices are having an impact on how our brain perceives messages on those devices, which is good news for marketers because the trend toward more personalized devices and experiences is here to stay even if the screens are getting smaller, or as you suggest, even disappearing. Bad stories and ads do not magically become good ones if you simply change the device on which they are shown.’

Crossly continued, ‘Neuroscience is an emerging field in consumer insights, and when done well, it allows us to truly understand volunteers’ reactions to advertising. When researchers measure the neurological reactions of consumers, the brain doesn’t lie or tell them something it thinks they want to hear. As researchers, we may not understand why we see certain behaviors or patterns, which is where surveys can help to fill in some gaps. We can also use analytics to further validate hypotheses and understand patterns across people which may not be possible with traditional research techniques.’ Credit: Simone Spilka, of PSFK LABS, conducted the interview with Crossly (

Integrated Marketing Research
Millennials Are Cautious, Tech-Savvy Savers
Recovering from the Great Recession has been tough for many, and 57% of Americans reported feeling like they were still in a recession as of the second quarter. According to Nielsen Research, Millennials have been hit particularly hard by the recent turbulence in the economy, but roughly 70% believe their personal finances will be either good or excellent in the next year. They’ve also got their eyes on the future, as they’re most likely to put extra money into savings after they cover their living expenses.

Millennials, defined by Nielsen as consumers born between 1977 and 1995, now account for 24% of the U.S. population. The group is 77 million strong, define themselves by their use of technology, and many have adopted a DIY approach to managing their finances. And when we look at the striations within the Millennial generation, upscale Millennials (those earning more than $75,000/year) represent a notable pocket of opportunity for financial services providers.
discretionary spend
Roughly 27% of Millennials fall into the upscale subset, and 15% of them actually earn more than $100,000 per year. In addition to their high incomes, upscale Millennials have amassed significantly more wealth than the overall generation. In fact, the median liquid wealth value (income producing assets) among upscale Millennials is $157,000, which is more than 11 times that of the generation as a whole.

Upscale Millennials are actively engaged in saving for the future. According to Nielsen Financial Track, these consumers are more than twice as likely as the average consumer to have variable-rate interest money market accounts and CD accounts. They’re also actively saving for retirement, as they’re 60% more likely than the average consumer to have an IRA and 87% more likely than the average consumer to have a 401(k) plan.

It’s also no secret that Millennials are active technology users. About 92% of Millennials own smartphones and roughly 61% own tablets. And because of their connection with technology, Millennials are more likely than the average consumer to bank on their PCs, smartphones and tablets, especially when making trades, opening new accounts, conducting research and making remote deposits. Upscale Millennials are even more engaged with tech for their financial needs, as they’re even more likely than their generation as a whole to conduct their primary banking activities online.
