Here is a god explanation to your question, from TV BY THE NUMBERS

Nielsen Says 2.5 Million Households Without TV, I Say Don’t Jump To Conclusions About Ratings Effects

Posted on 17 June 2009 by Bill Gorman

In its latest study out today, Nielsen estimates that 2.5 million US households cannot receive digital television signals and so are without TV entirely.

You can debate the validity of that number, it does fly in the face of the relatively few calls to FCC call centers set up to receive calls about the analog shut off, but correct or not, I don’t think there’s any other numbers out there to compare it with.

What I find interesting are the stories that are beginning to pop up about how ratings have or have not been effected by the analog shut off.

I’m not sure you can draw any conclusions about ratings effects at this point because of the way Nielsen measures ratings.

Nielsen gathers its national ratings data from approximately 20,000 households equipped with people meters. While Nielsen does its best to mirror the US population demographically, it seems to me that simply being a Nielsen “family” implies a certain level of self selection.

If you have enough of a clue to manage being a Nielsen family, that implies to me that you’re less likely to have been been caught by surprise by the analog shut off, and are more likely than average to be prepared.

The folks who got caught by the cut off are the least aware or the most procrastinating or disadvantaged in some other way that would likely keep them off people meters as well. So, I won’t be drawing any conclusions about how the ratings have or haven’t been effected by the shut off for awhile (maybe a long while), until there’s a lot more information

Not daytime, but this is staggering:


Nielsen corrects ABC's 'World News' viewer total

By FRAZIER MOORE, AP Television Writer Frazier Moore, Ap Television Writer – Wed Jun 17, 3:43 pm ET

NEW YORK – Nielsen's recount for ABC's "World News" last week has boosted its audience by about 800,000 viewers.

Nielsen Media Research reissued its report on Wednesday after ABC disputed the original figures released by Nielsen the day before.

Corrected figures for the week of June 8 show ABC's "World News" averaged 6.99 million viewers (4.8 household rating, 11 share). It was the runner-up newscast to NBC's "Nightly News," with 8.27 million viewers (5.5 rating, 12 share). "CBS Evening News," with 5.40 million viewers (3.7 rating, 8 share), was in third place.

Nielsen had originally said "World News" averaged 6.2 million viewers for the week, and that last Friday's edition was watched by 4.1 million viewers, well below its Friday average of 7.3 million this year.

Friday marked TV's digital transition, when analog signals were cut off and an estimated 2.5 percent of the nation's TV homes lost their TV transmissions. Some ABC affiliates switched over from analog to digital before the midnight deadline, and their viewership was not credited properly in Nielsen's initial report.

The Nielsen recount found the audience for "World News" last Friday was 6.34 million viewers.

Nielsen didn't factor in "World News" broadcasts for Tuesday and Thursday of last week, when the program was pre-empted in much of the country for ABC's coverage of the National Basketball Association finals. Similarly, NBC's "Nightly News" is based on a three-day average (Monday, Wednesday and Thursday). That newscast was widely pre-empted the other two days for NBC's coverage of the National Hockey League finals.

A ratings point represents 1,145,000 households, or 1 percent of the nation's estimated 114.5 million TV homes. The share is the percentage of in-use televisions tuned to a given show.


ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Co. CBS is owned by CBS Corp. NBC is owned by General Electric Co.

All this Neilsen talk and recount talk...

I love ratings and quantification, obviously. But what a dreadful business, to be in Neilsen's shoes. It is very, very easy to make errors here...and it is very easy to fix them. But the ratings have become so politicized (because of the revenue implications) that their poor statisticians must require diapers before releasing every little number.

The switch from analog to digital is a one time thing and ABC caught the error. Every time Nielsen has the occasional screw up, it is made into a big deal. Anyone who does statistics knows that errors can occur, but the fact is that they rarely do occur, especially when a company like Nielsen has teams of statisticians working on the numbers.

I may be wrong, but I think Neilsen is holding ratings for a week because of the DTV transition. We may have to wait until next week for any new numbers.

Well, the daily ratings continue to be posted at zap2it board. I doubt they will be delayed.

GH has really turned it around and I think when GH does well ABC Daytime does well, the same can be said for AMC as its the lead-in show and its ironic that ever since AMC struggled around 2006 that's when the rest of the lineup suffered so I think AMC has to get back on board here for the lineup.

I can't believe DAYS is losing Chelsea as that might be a small blow for them.

As for GL it seems like their waiting on ATWT to end its run over on CBS so they could get their package deal in place.

I'm not so sure GL or ATWT will ever see the light of day again once CBS is done with them. Has anyone heard anything new on this recently?

    • Hope so. The current opening is as dull as the show. Some more current and flattering shots would be good especially for MTS. And maybe some variety in the shots rather than having the actors in the same outfit -and sometimes the same pose- in the close up and background shot.
    • BFTD Stories That Stood Out:   Y&R   Victor and the Takeover. I remember that being such a big deal and well drawn out forever and day. And being annoyed every time Victor would be close to leaving and then...something would stall it. And the fallout was something else.    B&B   Does Sheila dying and popping up in L.A. count?   DAYS   I agree with whoever said Will's 2017 return. Not only did he come back...but he had the hots for his boyfriend's first love? If that ain't soapy...   GH   Brenda Barrett. Cuz...BRENDA. lol. That first return was EVERYTHING and while not dead in her other returns...the same thing happens that happened in that first return...instantly heavily attached to the canvas like she never left.   Katherine Bell and the Parapet. Can I mention that? Because it seem like she was dead, dead, dead...until that soapy dramatic Friday cliffhanger when she came into the court the spinning image of her savior Helena. The looks. The fashion. The music. It was PERFECTION. She got a little TOO big for her breeches, but it was still in her character to be that way.    OLTL   I liked the Tale of Two Todds. Though I did prefer Victor to Todd by the end. But crazy as it sounded and camp it had, I liked it then. Speaking of...   Marty's return in the form of Susan Haskell. The story might have been messy and I would probably feel different about it now if I rewatched it, but it was soap. And while the writing might have let me down, SH stayed fascinating to watch from story to story. And I liked that even though they wrote her wrong at the end, there was an attempt at least to course correct.     
    • She probably did bring it up lol.  This time, Brandi should have, if that’s what happened.  These women think they can go back into the fire and not get burned?!?  Like how did Phaedra and Vicky get out of addressing how they left their shows in disgrace, etc. on Ex-Wives s1?!?  Lolol However, Brandi is a tricky subject.  She is sooo desperate to be on Bravo that she will truly bring it… she’ll keep everything moving, but she takes it way too far and alienates herself from everyone.  And then no one will film with her.  And she also obviously can’t drink—she’s simply just not in control of herself, and this isn’t the environment for that because of all the triggers.  Like I’m sure she can get wasted around her real friends, like NY’s Kristen, and just be fun and crazy… but around these other Housewives where there is legit sabotage and paranoia happening, she just loses it.
    • Brandaon Barash and Isabella planned to get married in December. Then they changed their minds and got married (legally) shortly after they got engaged in the summer.  They had second wedding in December as a formal occasion for everyone to attend. Kirsten Storms (formerly Belle on Days, now Maxie on GH) and Brandon Barash were briefly together when he was playing Johnny on GH.  They have a daughter named Harper (who is now 9) and have coparented together every since.  Kirsten said a couple of months ago that she and Brandon were friends and tried a romance but it didn't work but they've remained friends all these years. Isabella was a camp counselor at a camp Harper attended.  Harper loved her and bonded with her first.  Brandon met her as "Harper's camp counselor".  So they met as adults who both cared about Harper.  I know Brandon is a lot older but Harper met Isa first.   The story is that Harper kept begging them to date and get married.  I saw an instagram post from Kirsten Storms indicating her approval. When BB proposed to Isabella, he gave her a diamond ring and he gave Harper diamond earrings, because they are a family together.   They knew each other for a while before they began dating. They dated for 2 or 3 years before he proposed. Her parents were there to assist with the surprise proposal. So after reading the entire story, my personal opinion is that it wasn't what I had assumed at first.  But of course I don't know anyone personally so I actually know nothing.
