For Friday, January 1, 2016 (Posted on January 2, 2016)
8P ‘NCIS‘ (‘The San Dominick‘) rerun finished with an average 6.947 million viewers and #1 for the evening.
9P ‘Hawaii Five-0′ (‘Ike Hanau‘ (‘Instinct’))rerun finished with an average 5.869 million viewers.
10P ‘Hawaii Five-0‘ (‘Kuka’awale‘ (‘Stakeout’)) rerun finished with an average 5.589 million viewers.
Disney’s Sports Network & Cash Cow had a very disappointing New Year’s Day Bowl schedule. The Stanford/Iowa Rose Bowl drew a 7.9 overnight rating on ESPN New Year’s Day, down 30% from Michigan State/Stanford in 2014 (11.2) and down 18% from Stanford/Wisconsin in 2013 (9.6). Last year’s Rose Bowl, part of the College Football Playoff, had a 15.5 overnight. The 7.9 overnight is the lowest for the Rose Bowl since at least 2001, and likely ever. To make matters worse, the Cardinal’s blowout win was the top game of New Year’s Day, but came nowhere close to this year’s playoff games—the Cotton Bowl (9.9) and Orange Bowl (9.7) on New Year’s Eve. In prime time, the Mississippi/Oklahoma State Sugar Bowl earned a 5.3 overnight, down 43% from Oklahoma/Alabama in 2014 (9.3) and down 17% from Louisville/Florida in 2013 (6.4). Last year’s Sugar Bowl, also part of the playoff, had a 15.3. Mississippi’s blowout win earned the lowest Sugar Bowl overnight since before the formation of the BCS, and the lowest overnight for any New Year’s night bowl game over the same span. Bucking the trend of declines was the Ohio State/Notre Dame Fiesta Bowl, which had a 6.2 overnight in the early afternoon window, up 35% from Boise State/Arizona on New Year’s Eve last year (4.6), but down 14% from UCF/Baylor on New Year’s night in 2014 (7.2).

Today In Communication History
On this date in 1953, ‘The Life of Riley’, starring William Bendix and Marjorie Reynolds, debuted on NBC-TV.
NOTE:We have entered a new era in screen ratings. Nielsen is expanding its sample of TV viewers to include new homes with meters that record the channel being watched — but not the demographics of the people watching. That will be estimated using data modeling and an algorithm Nielsen has developed, and added to the current sample that does include people meters that measure demos. The Panel Expansion (NPX), in which 12,900 households have been added to the national sample, is at the center of this change. The household ratings in these homes are measured by meters on each television in the home, while the demographic ratings in these homes will be assigned by Nielsen using a statistical algorithm. This is the first time since 1987 that homes in the national sample are not equipped with PeopleMeters, which measure both the program viewed and the people watching it.
More Consumers Use Mobile Devices To Pay In Stores
According to a survey of consumers who visit the shopping website Retale.com, 43% of respondents have used a mobile device to make a purchase inside a retail store. That’s up from 36% who one year ago reported using a mobile wallet to make an in-store payment in Retale’s first such survey. Half of the survey respondents said they’d be most likely to use PayPal if they were making an in-store payment using a mobile device during the 2015 holiday season, and 27% said they would be most likely to pay in stores with their bank’s mobile payment app. 20% of respondents said they would be most likely to use Apple Pay and 17% said they would likely use Android Pay.
Consumers increasingly expect retailers to support mobile payments in stores. Sixty-three percent of respondents said they believe retailers should offer an in-store mobile payment option, compared with 57% surveyed a year earlier. Eighty-three percent said they think mobile payments are convenient, compared with 76% who reported the same a year ago
Smartphones Continue to Drive Mobile Video Consumption
Mobile video viewing is growing as a share of all digital video viewing. And the overall mobile share of online video starts continues to grow in large part due to the increase of smartphone viewing. Adobe Digital Index revealed that in Q3 2015, the share of smartphone digital video starts worldwide was 18.1%, an increase from the year before where the share was 13.6%. The share of digital videos viewed on a smartphone was up 33.0% year over year. Tablet video viewing, on the other hand, saw a slight decrease. For example, in Q3 2015, the tablet share of digital video starts was at 12.6%. A year prior, it was at 13.5%. Overall, the share of digital videos viewed on a tablet was down 7%.
Separate research from Ooyala also found that the share of mobile phone digital views worldwide has increased, from September 2013 through September 2015. In fact, in September 2013, the share of mobile phone digital video views worldwide was at 7%. Fast-forward to September 2015 and that share was at 39%. Tablet share has remained relatively flat.
