    Just a question in order to better understand the figures.
    Looking for example at Persons Live, are there the ad breaks included in the rating or does the figure tell me the “pure” rating of the show without advertising time.
    In Germany we have a rating that means “pure” programme rating. The ad breaks are excluded and listed separately for each break.
    Thanks in advance!

    David,

    All of our information is for average viewers [or age or demo for the entire period of the show.

    In the US, there are C+3 ratings which show viewing for the commercials themselves within 3 days of broadcast, but we don't receive those regularly.

    The one time we found them we were able to calculate that nobody watches commercials in DVR playback.
