Retiring from the daily ratings posting game
My brief run at being back in the daily ratings game is over! A couple of months of it was enough for me to figure out that, despite it not being a terribly big hassle, it turned into more of a hassle than I’m willing to deal with.
I’m morally opposed to charging for data I’m not paying for and I’d guess Nielsen is even more opposed to that, so there’s no way for me to convert it into something where the hassle would be worthwhile for me. It’s much more that I couldn’t narrow it down to 10-15 minutes/day effort to make the ratings table (which I was happy to do) than money.
There are sites (spoilertv.com is the main one that comes to mind) that post daily broadcast & cable original data and probably include more than 50% of the daily sports data I was posting. And there’s Jon Lewis’s great sportsmediawatch.com, and while it doesn’t do anything comprehensively with daily numbers, it does comprehensive weekly posts of live sports telecasts.
Thanks for visiting the site and/or subscribing to the daily e-mails.
P.S. My sources took long weekends and I still haven’t seen the Thursday numbers or I’d include them here.
