Averages are based on final national numbers (live and same day viewing). Keep in mind that demo numbers are usually what is most important to advertisers. So that’s how networks measure success. Advertisers typically pay more for advertising time on a show that has a higher demo rating. Because older viewers don’t matter? No, it’s because younger viewers watch less traditional TV and are harder to reach. It’s also important to remember that ratings are designed to estimate the number of people who watch commercials for a show, not the show itself. This is what advertisers pay.
