    That’s pretty good for the graybeard SVU.

    Did LMS adjust up to the next tenth?


    • Rilm

      would need to get to .46 to adjust up – JUST missed


      • Destiny

        Funny thing is a 0.446 would round to a 0.45, as would a 0.454. But when a 0.455 comes along, things get more complicated.


        • Destiny

          I also think going into that much detail with ratings is absurd but Nielsen tracks numbers to the very last viewer with their calculations. I also think there’s enough there for people to assume if something has adjusted or not without it.


    • Niallerz1992

      Yes it did – its at a 0.5!!!!


    • Raiderguy

      Mitch would have noted if it did, since he didn’t that means it rounds down to 0.4.


      • 69 Road Runner

        I posted my original comment before Mitch added his notes, but the lack of mention probably means LMS got something like a 0.448 or similar, which would be enough to round to a 0.45, but it’s just short of a 0.5 when rounding to the tenth!


        • Amaury

          Right, because when rounding, you base it off of the original number, not any rounded numbers. So 1.449 total viewers would round to either 1.45 or 1.4. If you’re going to one decimal place, it would be *incorrect* to say 1.5, since you’re rounding the 1.449, not the 1.45. If you did, it’s wrong. Now, if the raw number is 1.450, then yeah, 1.5 would be correct if rounding to one decimal place.

          Similarly, in Destiny’s example above, 0.455 could be rounded to either 0.46 (two decimal places) or 0.5 (one decimal place).
