    how come CBS football does not count to the ratings?

  • Max Vrany

    @pw, didn’t start in primetime.

  • CenterGravity

    Wow, Chicago fire is on both lists.

    CBS is a viewership juggernaut!

    @pw Was is maybe not in Primetime?

  • romo

    Why does the 6:30 conference champ game + the super bowl count since they dont start in primetime ?

  • Qaz

    How hard would it be to start calculating non-primetime shows into your weekly lists? Is this just a pure reprint of what Neilsen sends you? I understand that most of the time the top shows of the week are primetime shows but I think not including the rest is pretty ridiculous if it betters the ratings of primetime shows.

    The cable lists include non-primetime shows I believe. These are old out of date practices that in this day and age should be easy to rectify.

  • romo

    Nobody can answer my question ?

    @romo
    Why does the 6:30 conference champ game + the super bowl count since they dont start in primetime ?

    There’s likely a cutoff point (probably an hour); anything starting before then doesn’t count.

    Note that a show starting in the afternoon the runs into primetime still counts for the network’s average, even though the show itself is excluded from Nielsen’s top XX lists.

  • romo

    Yea thats wierd — if the show counts in the net avg it should count in the list then too.

  • old guy

    Good Wife still good, getting tired of them trying to save the firm as under tow of the show
