Posted in advertising, Age, television with tags , , , , on February 23, 2015 by gadler

“A slate of boutique films and an uneven, torpidly paced broadcast conspired to put a whammy on Sunday night’s Oscars ratings, as overall viewership dropped 15% versus last year’s big show.
According to Nielsen fast national data, ABC’s presentation of the 87th Annual Academy Awards averaged 36.6 million viewers, down from 43 million a year ago. Of these, approximately 13.7 million, or 37%, were members of the key 18-49 demographic.”

Comcast and Cable Bypass…If You Can’t Beat Them, Join Them!

Posted in advertising with tags , , , , , on March 3, 2009 by gadler

Seems Comcast is taking a positive step in addressing  “cable bypass”,  or consumers bypassing cable tv for free online viewing.  A great deal of free mainsteam commercial video (TV, movies, etc.) is now available, and viewed, online. With the rapidly increasing number of internet viewers, it makes good sense for Comcast to move in establishing itself as a market leader. 

This will help aggressively target the younger demo (using cell phones v. land lines, and internet v. broadcast-cable tv or newspapers), and the mid-age demo who are tech-savvy and appreciating the need to reduce family expenses. Tough economy, you know!

With the availability of personalization and behavioral targeting, internet tv will prove an exceptional resource for advertisers to target their audience.

Comcast has reportedly hired Scott Schiller, the co-founder and first vice chairman of the Interactive Advertising Bureau, to oversee sales of 4 of its websites, including FanCast.com – a great internet-tv site.  Fancast could significantly enhance its value if/when it agrees to terms with ESPN to provide its ESPN 360 programming.

IAB is a respected internet industry resource, and luring one of its leaders is a coup.  Fingers are crossed – and congrats to Comcast.
