"CBS Corp. reports third-quarter earnings Thursday. The following is a summary of key developments and analyst opinion related to the period.
OVERVIEW: CBS still leads the television networks in prime time ratings, although some of its more popular franchises like "CSI" are starting to get old. But for now, the high ratings mean the company can command high advertising rates.
Total ad revenue will probably fall from a year-ago period that was boosted by spending on political ads around Congressional elections."
Jericho: The First Season/Review

Jericho is ranked # 4 at Hey Nielsen.
Go here to leave your opinion.
NEWS: Jericho Monster Wins Hey! Nielsen's "Top TV Blog" Contest
"Blogs are the epicenter of online passion, and these TV blogs are taking passion to an entirely new level," explained Pete Blackshaw, EVP of Nielsen Online Strategic Services and a member of the HeyNielsen.com team.
"The common thread across the winners is deep, in-depth, spirited - and sometimes controversial - rants and raves about shows, including those which got cancelled."
"The Nielsen Company says only 13.7 percent of TV households in the U.S. have High-Definition TVs -- and the high-def tuners necessary to watch HD programming.
Additionally, only 11.3 percent have the sets, the tuners and receive at least one HD network or station, the company said.
The numbers may alarm some advertisers and other companies looking to target the high-def audience. There has been a perception among some that the HDTV' audience is larger due to reports that high-def sets are now in 30 million U.S. homes."

"A plug for Jericho"
"Jericho is a 2006 CBS TV series which takes place in a small town somewhere in northwest Kansas after a nuclear attack. Who was responsible for the nuclear attack? Was only Denver bombed, or were other cities? You’ll have to watch the series to find out."
Kristin Bell comes to Heroes
"Did you guys see that show Jericho last season? Great show showing a small town surviving a wide spread terrorist nuke strike in the US. The show is filled with political intrigue. Who attacked the country, was it domestic or foreign terrorists, a military coup, China, Iran, or something else?"
"Nielsen is capturing the true voice of the consumer with the launch of their new “Hey Nielsen” social networking website. Designed to capture consumers immediate reactions to television, movie and music programming, the site launched in beta a few weeks ago. Nielsen is the market researcher most responsible for what we end up watching, listening to and going to see. They are not necessarily responsible for what we read however, but more on that later. Nielsen hopes that the Hey Nielsen site becomes the social monitor for all pop culture although my initial experimentation with the site seems to indicate that most people are focused on television."
"Forget Halloween. The real scare for TV viewers and film fans could start this week.
Hollywood writers, whose contract with producers expires tonight, could vote to strike as early as Thursday, though it's far from certain. The writers, in tough negotiations for new-media rights, also could wait as late as June, when actor/director contracts end."

"While we’re unleashing our lawyers on social networks with slips of paper with big words like “copyright infringement”, we’re also taking in huge new audiences on air and online — social media is actually helping our bottom line. How much? In one major broadcaster’s case, an additional 200,000 viewers in just one month. That company even let their growth secret out of the bag, “YouTube has brought a significant new audience of viewers to each broadcast.” Naughty CBS! They shouldn’t go running their mouths like that.
CBS isn’t the only one seeing growth by engaging in social media.
Couple growing social network interaction with the statistic that almost 70% of internet users watch TV while online and you’ve got a multiple platform experience, where you’re hitting your audience with your message from more than one place. Increased exposure is a great thing in the TV business.
Look up your favourite show in Facebook. Even if it’s a small show, or a canceled show, I bet it has its own fan group, or two, or three! Fans have taken marketing & brand ownership on themselves and are promoting our shows for us. Because they’re doing this through social networks, their friends and friends of friends all see this activity. Increased buzz and exposure (especially from your trusted social networking “friends”) means more brand engagement and often more people watching your show."

From The Jericho Bulletin:
"It wasn’t all that long ago that a show’s success was measured exclusively by its ratings.
Today, prime-time hits are no longer simply shows. They have become small businesses that generate multiple revenue streams—from program sales and home video to download-to-own and consumer products—for the networks and studios that produce, air and distribute them.
And as viewers have taken charge of when and where they watch shows, studio and network executives have had to invent new promotion and marketing strategies to manage these prime-time hits."
