UPDATE ON SMACKDOWN OVERNIGHT RATINGS
By: 1Wrestling.com
4/9/2004 2:41:07 PM

Other websites have different overnight ratings for Smackdown that the ones we reported earlier this morning. The source for our numbers was Zap2it.com, a leading source for entertainment news and information. The website updates overnight numbers based on samples from major markets across the country and posts rankings of the major networks on a daily basis based on those numbers.

The numbers in our report are accurate and based on information found in the Zap2it report.

Our report also contained information not found on other websites as far as the way the show ranked when put against other shows that aired last night.

We stand by the numbers we reported earlier and will continue to report Zap2it ratings information every Thursday.



1W telling you that YOU SUCK is nothing new, but this most certainly is...


FINAL SMACKDOWN RATING
By: 1Wrestling.com
4/9/2004 6:05:24 PM

Dave Meltzer reported on wrestlingobserver.com that Smackdown drew a 3.0 rating last night according to final ratings data compiled by Nielsen Media Research.


and they even linked to Da Meltz's site! But on the bright side, Scherer apparently took all the Pop Up's with him...

Gee, it's not like you can't find THAT on zap2it.com, too...

I'm more apt to read Marc Berman's Programming Insider on Mediaweek.com; I don't always agree with him, and he can be on hiatus a couple of times, but that's what I use.

Nothing was better for TV ratings news as thefutoncritic. I discovered the site really late unfortunately, but they had amazing information including half an hour ratings breakdowns of all the networks... But the Nielsen Nazis found out and forced them not to report the ratings anymore. Now the site has no ratings information just T.V news and no real reason for me to go check.

zap2it now is the best rating tabulation but doesn't hold a candle to what futoncritic did. Zap gives an overall number and your lucky if you get an hour breakdown on Smackdown. Plus their numbers don't always connect with the official final number(zap is usually 0.1 lower then the actual number)

Why wouldn't Nielsen let them report the ratings? Every Wednesday, USATODAY breaks down the ratings for all the network shows. I don't understand why there isn't a website (that I know of) where you can find all the numbers.

Probably because they make really good money providing that information to the people who want it enough to pay for it. I know that SoundScan (part of VNU/Nielsen Media Research) has very strict rules about how much of their sales information can be reported to the public and when that information can be released, even when you pay to get the unexpurgated information.

For minimal expounding on this subject with regard to TV ratings, including The Futon Critic's situation, visit the req.arts.tv FAQ: http://homepage.mac.com/ ijball/ratv/FAQL/section- 1.1.html

If they are anything like Arbitron radio ratings they can get mighty proprietary with them. For example, Arbitron will give your station the ratings info IF YOU PAY FOR IT.
