Today In Communication History
On this date in 1959, ‘Desilu Playhouse’ on CBS-TV presented a two-part show titled ‘The Untouchables’.
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.
Quote Of The Day
‘Management is doing things right. Leadership is doing the right things.’
VOD Viewers Don’t Mind Watching Ads For Free Content
According to those fine folks at Nielsen, the rise of video-on-demand (VOD) programming choices is not only a great benefit to viewers—it also opens more opportunities for advertisers and content creators to reach them. But advertising strategies should be navigated carefully, as viewers are looking to cut through the clutter.
Many consumers see value in ads, but the value proposition must be right.
In fact, more than half of global respondents who say they watch VOD (51%) programming also say they somewhat or strongly agree that ads in VOD content give them good ideas for new products to try. And importantly, nearly six-in-10 (59%) say they don’t mind getting advertising if they can view free content. This sentiment is particularly strong in North America, where 68% are willing to trade their time and attention for free programming.
What’s clear, however, is the need for more relevant ads that speak directly to consumers. Two-thirds of global respondents say most ads in VOD content are for products they don’t want (66%).
“In a crowded media environment, relevant ads and brand experiences are critical for engaging consumers,” said Megan Clarken, president, Nielsen Product Leadership. “Just as technology has made it easier for consumers to control the amount of advertising they see, it has also made it easier for advertisers to reach the right consumers at the right time and in the right place. The advertisers with the greatest brand and sales impact will naturally be those that connect messages about products and services with the people who want them.”
Other findings from the global video-on-demand report include:
◎ Nearly two-thirds of global respondents (65%) say they watch some form of VOD programming, which includes long- and short-form content.
◎ VOD is becoming a part of daily viewing habits for many. Among those who watch any type of VOD programming, 43% say they watch at least once a day.
◎ More than three-quarters of global respondents (77%) who watch VOD programming agree that they do so because they can view at a time that is convenient for them.
◎ Among those who watch VOD programming, Millennials and Gen X respondents are the most likely to agree that they like to catch up on multiple episodes at once.

Smartphone Owners’ Openness to Transactional Messages Surprising by Industry
More than 8 in 10 smartphone owners claim that service-based messaging has at least some impact on their decision to choose one company over another, according to a Vibes report. The most important features of service-based messaging, per respondents, are basic information such as time, date and tracking information (80% extremely important) and immediacy of the message (73%). Respondents are most open to receiving service-based messages from banking/financial companies (67%) and retail stores (64%), reflecting the frequency of transactions conducted with these types of companies.
With the speed of the messaging and the channel used both important to smartphone owners, the report also notes that more than 3 in 4 respondents believe that text-messages are a fast way to be reached for important service updates on purchases. Fewer than half felt the same way about emails on their phone (48%) or push notifications on their phone (32%).
Live+ 7 Day DVR TV Ratings (Week 28)
So, what does all of this mean? It suggests that there is a lot of time shifting in viewing habits. Much of it has been chronicled as the Millennial Affect, that being this groups watches when they want to watch on whatever platform they want to watch it on.
However, what if we are actually living in a ‘New Viewing World’ set on a new standard for a group of people who have been affected by the Great Recession who found a new ‘Linus’ Blanket’ in watching inexpensive entertainment? It is the art of watching the most favored program first. In 2015/16 season, CBS has dominated the total viewers schedules. Thus, on a Tuesday, when ‘NCIS’ leads off the night, viewers in large numbers tune into that program. Anything up against it that is favored by the audience, is put into DVD mode for future viewing. This could be the explanation for popular programs such as ‘Blindspot’ delivering huge DVD playback delayed numbers. It is up against more immediately popular programs on Thursday. Thus if a person watches CBS’ ‘Criminal Minds’ LIVE, then ‘Blindspot’ is played later. Going to Monday evenings, in the ‘Monday Battle @ 10P’, there are three popular programs which battle on a regular basis. On CBS is ‘NCIS:Los Angeles’, usually the #1 show in its LIVE time period. On NBC, there is ‘Blindspot’. And on ABC, ‘Castle’ is the opponent. For one that likes all three programs, the audience is tuning into ‘NCIS:LA’ then DVDing ‘Blindspot’ and ‘Castle’. (Note: On this particular week, ‘Castle’ was on an unusually long hiatus, thus it does not show up.)
What does this mean for advertisers? If you are in retail, only buy the LIVE TV Ratings. Your sale on Saturday may not get to the viewer in time. Insist on only buying for the value you will receive, not what the total value of the station or network is. After all, we live in an age of direct engagement via digital/mobile.
‘Castle’ To Be Without Beckett If Season 9 Is A Go
Stana Katic’s contract has not been renewed by ABC while negotiations are ongoing with ‘Castle’ co-star, Nathan Fillion. The fate of Katic was in the mirror as last season’s disastrous arc featuring the two co-stars separated most of the season as it was the last by ‘Castle’ creator Andrew Marlowe, who left the series in a shamble as fans departed because the two were often seen at odds on the screen. Tamala Jones, who played medical examiner, Lanie Parish who was Kate Beckett’s close friend, contract was also not renewed.

‘The Night Manager’ Not In The Cards For A Second Season
Tom Hiddleston said there is not a second season being planned, and now the writer of the series is making it clear that a second season is not happening either.
David Farr spoke about ‘The Night Manager’ in an interview with Variety, and he made it clear that he is “done” with the project. He said the following: “There is lots of pressure but I’m not keen. Personally, I liked the fact that the story ended where the story ended. But that’s entirely personal. Given the characters, there is a potential for something more to happen, and I’m sure someone could find the right idea. But for me it’s done. My simple feeling is that I wouldn’t be able to make the next one as good. But I would love to work with Le Carré again and we are talking about future projects.”
For The Night Manager, Farr worked closely with the author of the novel, John Le Carré, to update the story to present day.
