The Tiffany Network had pro football and a sensational ending with a match on the fake tundra of Ford Field. At 8P, ‘NFL Kick Off‘ delivered an average 10.30 million viewers and a 5.0/9. At 830P, ‘Thursday Night Football‘ featured the Central Division of the NFC as the Green Bay Packers defeated the Detroit Lions in their 179th match against each other on a last play, with no time on the board, ‘Hail Mary’ touchdown as Aaron Rodgers passed 70+ yards to Rich Rodgers for a remarkable ending to a very strange game as the Packers won 27-23. With the Packers trailing 20-0 at one point, a flurry of scoring brought the game to a climax with no time on the board, extended by a penalty against the Lions which gave the Packers an added play. It resulted the drama of the year. And, it drew an average 13.036 million viewers and a 8.7/14 as it was the #1 program on Thursday. (Note: CBS’s ‘Thursday Night Football’ aired live.

The Peacock Network thought it had the stage all by itself before Black Rock showed up with a football game.

Today In Communication History

On this date in 1939, BBC broadcasts the first physical jerks (aka ‘daily dozen’) program for wartime fitness, on alternating days for men and women; the audience at the year end is estimated at 750,000 men and 900,000 women.

The Millennials – Continued
A new global study shows just how much time Millennials devote to their mobile devices. According to TNS’s global Connected Life study, the average Millennial (16 to 30) with internet access spends 3.2 hours a day on their mobile devices, the equivalent of almost a whole day every week, or 49 days a year.

For millennials, watching videos and online TV accounts for 46% of device time, with 76% engaging on a daily basis compared to 59% globally. Social networking accounts for 40% of Canadian millennials’ device time and online shopping accounts for 14%.

For older consumers who are online, traditional media habits still hold strong. Those 46-65 spend 3.1 hours a day watching TV, 0.2 hours reading newspapers and magazines, and one hour listening to the radio, which adds up to 2.5 hours more than the average millennial. However, they are using online platforms regularly.

There is an increase in time spent overall on digital media, but depending on what demographic profile you are looking at, they will be using a different device at a different time of the day, doing different things,’ stated Stephan Sigaud, SVP of marketing and business development at TNS Canada. ‘The key learning from this study is that in order to maximize the effectiveness of your marketing strategy, you really have to look deeper inside your audience and you can’t talk about the average consumer anymore.’

People are actually sitting with a mobile phone or laptop while they’re watching TV. Thus the traditional touchpoints need to be re-evaluated in terms of how marketers can reach certain groups based on how they combine devices, in addition to how they use each device.

The New Color For Next Year Is…
Global color authority Pantone turned softer with its 2016 color of the year to resonate with consumers looking to escape today’s stresses. This is the first time the organization has blended two shades—Rose Quartz and Serenity—for its annual proclamation. Weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, Serenity comforts with a calming effect, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation in turbulent times. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.

Cyber Monday Sales Set A New Record, Hitting $3 Billion For The First Time.

Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday

In an article by Toni Fitzgerald, 120115, Cyber Monday marked the biggest online shopping day in history, as it was up 16.2% over last year, according to the Custora E-Commerce Pulse, which tracks web shopping trends. The big sales were no surprise. Online shopping has become mainstream, and just about every retailer offers some sort of Cyber Monday incentive to draw shoppers in, from free shipping to deep discounts.

What was perhaps most interesting about Cyber Monday was the distinct shopping patterns that are starting to develop, which media people can use to their advantage when planning and buying for clients. Some things resonate with shoppers, while others do not. Here’s a look at what was hot and what wasn’t on Cyber Monday.

Mobile shopping
Twenty-seven percent of Cyber Monday sales came on smartphones or tablets, Custora reports, up from 23 percent last year. People are still most likely to buy using Apple devices, such as iPhones and iPads, which accounted for 75.6 percent of all sales.

Buyers say clients were more interested in mobile ads this year because of this shift.

Email advertising
Though texting and instant messaging have replaced email as the e-communication methods of choice, email is still preferred for advertising. It drove 22 percent of all transactions on Cyber Monday, more than any other form of marketing.

Search and paid search
Search, both paid and unpaid, also sparked a huge portion of orders: 20.7 percent and 16.6 percent, respectively, ranking behind only email.

On the biggest e-shopping day of the year, the biggest pay site stumbled: PayPal was hit by so much traffic, it resulted in periodic outages. You’d expect this, perhaps, 10 years ago, when technology was still catching up to demand, but not in 2015.

When and Why Social Program Engagement Matters
Per a Nielsen study, new stats on social media use while watching TV:
► Today’s TV audiences often use social media while watching live series programs.#c|sdigitalnote 🇺🇸💻📱
► Twitter activity during live airings is so closely related to on-screen moments and stories that it was found to be indicative of the engagement of the general viewing audience.#c|sdigitalnote 🇺🇸💻📱
► Audiences see Tweets with higher frequency during live airings, suggesting that this could be a powerful time to promote and cross-promote programs through social media.#c|sdigitalnote 🇺🇸💻📱

*FOX Being Sued By ‘Bones’
One of the biggest programs on FOX over the years has been ‘Bones’. But bad blood between all parties seems to destine the show for a very bad ending. Reminiscent of James Garner suing Universal over his portion of profits of ‘The Rockford Files’,
the executive producer, the two main stars and the woman who wrote the novels that made the series possible, are all suing FOX. xecutive producer Barry Josephson has filed suit against 20th Century Fox Corporation, Fox Broadcasting Company, and Fox Entertainment Group, over accounting practices and alleged cancellation threats. Now, the long running TV series’ co-stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel have followed suit, by filing suit. According to a Deadline report, Boreanaz, Deschanel, and executive producer Kathleen Reichs (the forensic anthropologist who wrote the Temperance Brennan novels upon which the TV show is based) “are going after the broadcaster too for ‘tens of millions’ they claim they are owed.”

Deadline cites the legal complaint:
“The documents that 20th TV did provide confirmed Plaintiffs’ suspicions and showed that they were being cheated out of more than $100 million in gross revenues and being overcharged many additional millions of dollars in alleged expenses,” the jury-trial complaint adds of the plaintiffs fight to get a look at true accounting of Bones after not getting anything in profits for several seasons.

“When 20th TV finally did engage with Plaintiffs in the fifth and sixth seasons of the Series, it did so under the threat of cancelling the Series unless Plaintiffs accepted its non-negotiable license fee figure, and then concealed material information about the true value of that figure,” Monday’s filing asserts, again in specifics very similar to what Josephson stated in his own complaint last week — all of which might see these cases share the same judge or jury if the courts think that they are related enough.

Deadline has archived the filing, here ( If you give it a look, notice (on page three) that over the course of the series, FOX has scheduled Bones in “seven different times periods spanning five different nights.” Even for a TV series in its eleventh season, that number of moves seems staggering.

As previously reported, while the new showrunner wants a 12th season of Bones, Boreanaz is looking forward to leaving the show after season 11 concludes production. When FOX will air the second half of season 11 is still up in the air.

James Garner concluded when he sued the studios, ‘About everything I ever have done, in the way of lawsuits against studios, I’ve won them all,’ he said, ‘because I was right every time. (Studios) would rather steal than do it right. And they might even make more money if they did it right. But it’s just not in their nature.’ (Los Angeles Times, ‘A Surviving Maverick : James Garner Has Won Lawsuits, Overcome Health Problems to Remain One of TV’s Top Stars’ December 02, 1990 DANIEL CERONE Times Staff Writer)
