More Bang for the buck: With Nielsen’s first ever Total Content Ratings, measuring live+35 day viewing across multiple platforms including VOD, TV and DVR, CBS series grew an average of 54% from Live+SD numbers in the first 13 weeks of the 2016-17 season; Big Bang Theory had a 67% boost. The numbers exceed live viewing of CBS series 15 years ago. “This brand new data is a potentially very valuable media planning tool for our clients and their agencies,” said David Poltrack, chief research officer, CBO Corp. and president, CBS Vision. “It certainly adds a new dimension to an advertiser’s program selection process, as well as more clarity about the true incremental viewing that is of enormous and increasing value in today’s changing landscape.” Digital viewing via the CBS web site, app or streaming service was not included, as those metrics are “still in development.”
