Today In Communication History

On this date in 1949, ‘Kukla, Fran and Ollie’, the Chicago-based children’s show, made its national debut 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.

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.

US Media Universe Across Devices 2016
Portrait of young happy woman sharing her photo and video files
Traditional TV (live + DVR/time-shifted TV) and AM/FM radio continue to have the widest monthly reach of any media among Americans, reports Nielsen in its latest look at the media universe. While the timing of the report doesn’t provide for direct year-over-year comparisons to last year’s installment, there are some trends to be found from the latest release.

TV Screen
A comparison of this latest report’s data with the previous edition indicates that the monthly traditional TV audience of 282 million (during Q3 2015) is down from 285 million during Q4 2014. Also on the TV screen, the latest figures show that, during that time period:

⦿ The number of Americans viewing DVR/time-shifted TV remained steady at 181 million;
⦿ The number using a DVD or Blu-Ray player dropped by 17 million to 125 million;
⦿ The number using a game console declined by 7 million, to 90 million; but
⦿ The number using a multimedia device surged by 23 million, to 66 million (a more than 50% gain).

AM/FM Radio
While research shows that online radio’s reach continues to grow, AM/FM radio‘s audience remains largely steady, averaging 259 million monthly for the year-long period ending in mid-June 2015, compared to 258 million for the year-long period ending in mid-September 2014.

Smartphones & Computers
The latest figures show a narrowing of the gap in internet access on PCs versus smartphones:
⦿ During Q3 2015, 182 million used the internet on a PC on at least a monthly basis, down from 198 million during Q4 2014; while
⦿ 176 million used apps or the web on a smartphone, up from 164 million.
As such, the audience gap between PC and smartphone internet use narrowed from 34 million in Q4 2014 to just 6 million in Q3 2015.

The shift from PCs to smartphones is evident in the video viewing audience, too. Indeed, Nielsen’s figures show that more Americans now watch video on a smartphone than do so on a PC. Specifically, in Q3 2015:
⦿ 133 million Americans watched video on a smartphone on at least a monthly basis, up 11 million from Q4 2014; while
⦿ 127 million watched video on a PC, down 19 million from Q4 2014.

Social Media
This year’s social media figures combine app and mobile web use (where they were separated last year), such that direct comparisons can’t be made to last year’s report. Nevertheless, the latest figures show that social media has a larger monthly audience on smartphones than on PCs:
⦿ 169 million accessed social media via app or web on a smartphone during Q3 2015; versus
⦿ 115 million who accessed social media on a PC (down 18 million from Q4 2014).

ESPN Continues Its Slide
ESPN is currently in 91.4 million television homes, according to a report in Sports Business Journal, a loss of 1.5 million since July (92.9M), three million since February (94.4M), and nearly nine million since July 2011.
Overall, cable distribution is down to 99.6 million homes, “the first time in more than seven years (since August 2008) that the pay-TV industry failed to eclipse the 100 million home mark.”
