Today In Communication History
On this date in 1949, the first Emmys were presented at the Hollywood Athletic Club. The first winner as the top program was ‘Pantomime Quiz’. The first Emmy for the best film made for television was ‘The Necklace’ (Your Show Time Series). And the Most Outstanding Television Personality was ‘Shirley Hinsdale’. The ceremonies were held at the Hollywood Athletic Club, Los Angeles.
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.
