    Do you have:

    House of Payne (8:00PM on BET Her) and
    Assisted Living (8:00PM and 8:30PM on BET Her)

    ratings, please? Thanks for all!


  2. Destiny

    AEW had a fantastic night, they’re back over a million viewers. They also crushed NXT as usual, something I’m sure they’re not tired of doing lol.


  3. mark

    Can Mitch or anybody else comment on this? If you already covered it i missed it. It comes from adweek. I don’t know if its only for cable news, or for all of TV. The most interesting (to me) is other people’s homes. I’ll turn my TV up really loud so it gets counted. :o)

    Starting Monday, Aug. 31, Nielsen has been including measurement outside of a panelist’s home in official program ratings. This additional viewing is called Out of Home (“OOH”). OOH includes viewing done in other people’s homes, bars, hotels, gyms, airports and other public places where a TV set is audible.


    • Bruce

      I think you misread something. How about a link to your reference?


      • mark

        I don’t know if link will show up.

        https://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/thursday-sept-10-scoreboard-fox-news-averaged-more-prime-time-viewers-than-cnn-and-msnbc-combined/455242/

        If it doesn’t go to adweek dot com Click on any of the ratings. Not the non ratings articles.


        • Bruce

          Perhaps Mitch could confirm but OOH measurements aren’t Neilson being physically outside your home listening to your TV. OOH is a member of the Neilson Family (participant) being physically outside their home, watching TV in a public setting and logging what they watch on their Portable People Meter. Perhaps it’s a cellphone app.

          Just a thought. I think Neilson has run its course using people to measure TV viewing. Perhaps Cable TV Providers and Content Delivery Networks should be compiling data.


          • mark

            I was being sarcastic with the “turn up my TV” comment. I’d say you are correct, its Neilson Family member using another device when away from their home.

            I never did put much stock in the way Neilson works. I don’t buy or sell ads on TV so Neilson doesn’t care what i think. :O)


          • Bruce

            You obviously understand how emoticons work, but they’re essential with sarcasm.

            OOH requires Personal People Meters so if a participant is outside their home watching TV elsewhere, they’ll enter what they’re watching.

            I don’t understand why advertisers are up-in-arms because most of us are still locked down with businesses closed.

    Do you have the numbers for the coverage of the Clippers game on ESPNEWS?
