Today In Communication History

On this date in 1958, ‘Seahunt’ debuted on CBS-TV. The show, starring Lloyd Bridges, was aired on the network for four years.

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.

Marketing Research
Half of Americans Can’t Afford A Major Purchase Right Now
Some 48% of American adults surveyed throughout 2015 believe they would be unable to right now make a major purchase, such as a car, appliance or furniture, or pay for a significant home repair if they needed to. That’s according to a Gallup analysis of daily tracking poll data, which finds that the threshold household income level for being able to afford a major purchase is around $48,000. Even so, 7 in 10 adults say they have enough money to buy the things they need, and that includes almost half (49%) of those in households with income of $12-24k. Indeed, almost 6 in 10 adults in the $24-36k income band say they have enough money to buy the things they need. Finally, a majority (60%) of adults surveyed during the year said they are cutting back on how much money they spend each week. That figures includes a majority of respondents in all income bands up to $120k per year, although a sizable 37% of those with $240k or more in household income also report cutting back on their weekly spending.

Are we teetering on recession? Again?

Forty-five percent positive reactions, 46 neutral reactions, and 9 percent negative. A “meh” isn’t exactly a bad thing, but it’s not great either.
Most Tweeted Celebrities Around Golden Globes
The most tweeted celeb was Lady Gaga, with 141,147 tweets about her during the show. Leonardo DiCaprio generated 74,439 tweets during the same time period. That might be because of their wins, but also because of a meme-worthy moment when Gaga bumps into the actor on her way to the stage.
