    Thank you so much for your site! Quick question.. If you try to add up the 8p or 9p shares it’s usually like 30% total.
    Does that mean 70% of the 18-49 are watching other *non original cable shows at 8pm?

    PS If they are watching on demand thru the cable box, do they still count to the share? What about Flipping channels?
