This Weekend in 1942, ‘Pride of the Yankees‘ was directed by Sam Wood, and starring Gary Cooper, Teresa Wright, Walter Brennan, Dan Duryea and Babe Ruth. It received 11 Academy Award nominations. Gehrig died on June 2, 1941. The film premiered on July 14, 1942 in New York City at the Astor Theatre, and was shown for one night only at “forty neighborhood theatres.” Preceding the film was the premiere of an animated short called “How to Play Baseball,” produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios at Samuel Goldwyn’s request, the producer of the film. The Pride of the Yankees was the 7th-highest grossing film of 1942, with $8.08 million in box office receipts. Despite its wide popularity, RKO took a loss of $213,000 on the film due to the small distribution fee that Samuel Goldwyn had negotiated with the studio. All of Goldwyn’s pictures produced a loss for RKO no matter how much money they took in; but the studio considered the arrangement acceptable, because its association with Goldwyn lent prestige to RKO, and enhanced sales of its own movies.

This weekend in 1942, ‘Sleepy Lagoon‘ Harry James and His Orchestra. The James recording was released by Columbia Records as catalog number 36549. It first reached the Billboard Best Seller chart on 17 April 1942 and lasted 18 weeks on the chart, peaking at number 1.

Google has updated AdWords to include call bid adjustment, which will help marketers drive more calls from mobile search ads. Google reports that calls have triple the conversion rate of website clicks. Mobile has accelerated the use of call technology. On average, calls convert three times better than web clicks, according to Google. Call bid adjustments aim to help marketers generate more calls in search ads. As Google points out in the post, click-to-call ads were introduced seven years ago to help marketers connect with more customers on the phone. Call bid adjustments are available in the new AdWords, which will roll out to all advertisers by the end of the year.

Remember, social media marketing isn’t always the tech. It’s the people.

Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

Showtime Adds Donald Trump Animated Series From Stephen Colbert

The #1 man in late night programming will add another zany part to his portfolio. The series will revolve around the two-dimensional avatars of President Donald Trump and his family members. Described as a “fresh, cutting-edge comedy,” the series will present the “tru-ish adventures of Trump’s confidants and bon vivants — family, top associates, heads of government, golf pros, and anyone else straying into his orbit — intrepidly exploring their histories and their psyches, revealing insights into what makes them so definitively Trumpian.” According to Showtime, “it’s a workplace comedy where the office happens to be oval; it’s a character study in search of character, as seen through the eyes of an imaginary documentary crew.” “I know a lot of people wanted to do this, and I’m honored that the Cartoon President invited our documentary crew into his private world. I’ve seen some of the footage, and I look forward to sharing the man behind the MAGA,” Colbert said in jest.

Nielsen Now Including Hulu, YouTube TV Live Viewing In Its TV Ratings

People aren’t watching TV like they used to, and Nielsen is working on ways to provide its clients—both advertisers and traditional TV networks—the most accurate view of who’s consuming content and how. One way Nielsen believes it can accomplish this is by analyzing live TV viewing on streaming services. Nielsen will add viewers who stream shows via Hulu and YouTube TV to the mix. It will include viewers watching linear broadcasts live, on DVRs, or through on-demand platforms on desktop computers, tablets and smartphones.

Nielsen will record all digital viewing that occurs within a three-day or seven-day window of when a show first aired on TV into its C3, C7 currency, which advertisers use to buy ad time. To be certain, not all video from Hulu or YouTube will count. A Hulu user enjoying on-demand playback of the streaming-video hub’s critically praised series The Handmaid’s Tale or an old episode of the NBC cop drama Hill Street Blues would not count. To be part of the new measure, the programming has to “mirror” the commercial load of the original linear TV broadcast and be seen within the three-day or seven-day windows.

Nielsen’s ratings had already included digital viewing from Sling TV and Sony’s PlayStation Vue, as well as TV apps such as CBS All Access.

Australians are voracious consumers of broadcast TV and other video, and they have a growing array of options by which to access this content, anywhere, anytime. The first edition of the Australian Video Viewing Report – from Regional TAM, OzTAM and Nielsen – shows video viewing behaviour continues to shift with growing content, device and platform choices.

For instance, at home – where most video viewing takes place – Australians have numerous options, and this encourages the cross-screen ‘spreading’ behaviour observed for several years.That in turn contributes to the steady and gradual decline in the amount of time Australians spend watching live and time-shifted TV – particularly in the evenings, when people generally have the most available time. Meanwhile, now-ubiquitous connected mobile devices allow people to consume video at different times of day, including when they are outside the home. For some people this creates more time and opportunity to watch.

Despite unprecedented choice, on average across the total population TV remains the most-watched screen, and most Australians watch some broadcast TV (free-to-air and subscription channels) each week. The Australian Video Viewing Report reveals information for Q1, 217, and while the data has instigated much discussion about television’s place in today’s screen mix, several trends are clear:

◉ TV sets remain core screen: 19.9 million Australians (84% of the population in people metered markets) watch some broadcast TV (free-to-air and subscription channels) on in-home TV sets each week and watched an average of 79 hours and 30 minutes (79:30) of broadcast TV on in-home TV sets per person each month.

◉ More connected: More than two-thirds of homes have internet-capable TVs, whether connected or not. Half of homes have tablets and eight-in-ten have one or more smartphones.

◉ Younger Australians connect to watch: Australians aged 18-24 are the highest engagers of video content online – spending more than 22 hours per month watching video viewing via desktop or laptop and more than nine hours a month watching video via a smartphone.

Regional TAM Chairman and General Manager, Prime Television, Tony Hogarth said: “This Q1 2017 Australian Video Viewing Report is the natural evolution of the Australian Multi Screen Report, providing a simplified framework whilst maintaining the core measurement metrics of past reports. With the increased viewing options and platforms available the in-home television set is still the most popular choice, with broadcast television reaching 83.7 per cent of Australians weekly. Regional Australians in particular spend just over 87 hours watching broadcast television on average each month, which is almost eight hours more than the national average.”

Craig Johnson, Regional Managing Director, Media, Nielsen, said: “As we move through 2017 we’ve continued to see growth of Australians aged 18-24 engaging with video content online. This is certainly reflected in video viewing on mobile devices with this group now spending more than nine hours a month watching video via a smartphone – making them the biggest consumers of mobile video content. Content providers and advertisers need to be flexible with their approaches in order to reach consumers where they are, and on any screen size they choose for that moment.”

OzTAM CEO Doug Peiffer said: “The Q1 2017 Australian Video Viewing Report confirms Australians’ huge appetite for video. As people embrace device and platform choice, for some these new options actually create more time to stay up to date with their favourite TV programs or watch other video – for example, while commuting or taking a few minutes out during their lunch break. Although connected screens and endless content options contribute to the gradual decline in the time people spend watching live and time-shifted TV, particularly for younger viewers, nearly all Australians watch broadcast TV each week. On average across the total population TV remains the most-watched screen.”

It combines data from the OzTAM and Regional TAM television ratings panels; Nielsen Online Ratings; Nielsen’s Australian Connected Consumers report; and OzTAM’s Video Player Measurement (VPM) data.
