It’s another Thursday of ratings. FOX comes in first with So You Think You Can Dance having 4.0/12. Coming in second was ABC’s NBA Finals: Game 4 (special) having 3.7/12. Not far behind in third was FOX also had Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader with 3.5/12.
Catch ya after the jump. . .
This section is designed for a discussion of the losers, just joking.:
|Coming in forth was ABC’s NBA Finals: Game 4 with 3.4/10 in the 9:30 hour time slot. And while I usually have some comment about the NBA being a bunch of criminals with lots of money. The San Antonio Spurs maybe the exception to this rule. I am really happy for them and their fans. Anyone who has ever lived in or visited San Antonio knows that these are the friendliest people on the planet. Good for you Spurs! I wish all the teams could be this good. Did you listen to the post game interviews? Not a one of them, said I did this and I did that — all of them pointed out something good that someone else was doing. Damn! I’m about to start crying. OK, enough of this sh$%|
Since there’s no more chart displays, I’ll be generous and give you fifth and sixth. I’m old so I hope that you can appreciate the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome that I’m taking on, just 4 U! You know I love it.
Coming in fifth was ABC’s NBA Finals: Game 4 with 2.8/9 in the 9:00 hour time slot. Once more — Good for you Spurs! Reeepeaaaaaaaaat!
|Coming in sixth was CBS’s CSI with 2.6/8 — the show that I used to watch — maybe it was CSI: Miami — is there a difference. Don’t answer, because I don’t care.|
How do I read these ratings?
A Nielsen rating may look like this:
8pm – NBC – TVgasm The TV Show – 10.0/18
Focus on the 10.0/18. The RATING, 10.0, on the left represents the actual number of households that watched a show. One rating point equals 1,102,000 households. The SHARE, 18, on the right represents the show’s proportion of the total households watching television at that time.
For example, TVgasms TV Show has a 10 rating/18 share. That means 11,020,000 households are tuned in to the show and 18% of all the households with a TV turned on are watching that show.
Ratings and Share are customarily broken down for various DEMOs — a demographic grouping of viewers, like 18-49 adults or 2-12 children or 18-34 women, etc. Advertisers, and therefore networks, covet the 18-49 adult demo, and so tend to concentrate on that number.
