Campbell Live beats TV One – first time ever

Campbell Live last night beat the TV One 7pm show Seven Sharp overall audience for the first time since Campbell Live began in 2005.

It is also the first time TV3 has ever beaten TV One in the 7pm weekday slot since TV3 began in November 1989.

Seven Sharp took another hit in the ratings on Tuesday night after a short recovery in Monday’s show, according to overnight ratings from Nielsen TAM.

But will they come back? Ask MySpace.

The Indiepocalypse

For hundreds of years, publishers across every industry ??? book publishers, record labels, film studios, videogame publishers ??? solved problems for artists in four major ways:

  1. Funding. The cost of creating a new work, paying the artist’s expenses during the creation process, often with an advance.
  2. Production. Design, manufacturing, and printing of the finished product.
  3. Marketing. Going on tour, making a video, promotion in various media outlets.
  4. Distribution. Getting the product into people’s hands.

And how does this play out now?

Google wants to take on Apple with an open AirPlay alternative ??? Tech News and Analysis

Google isn???t the first one to work on an alternative to AirPlay.

It???s DLNA protocol has been widely adopted by numerous players, with a total of 500 devices supporting DLNA today. However, the actual level of support varies widely, and many manufacturers have opted to roll out their own branded solutions on top of DLNA ??? but even those see little use from consumers.

Nielsen: TV Still King In Media Consumption; Only 16 Percent Of TV Homes Have Tablets

neilsen media 2012

It???s not too late for yet one more 2012 year-in-review report, and today???s latest addition comes from Nielsen, which examined how Americans have been consuming content over the course of the past year. The report found that of the 289 million U.S. TV owners, 119 million own four or more television sets, making TV still the device to beat when it comes to watching and recording programs, among other things.

The TV owning audience can also be further split up by how they access their programing and what sort of things they use their TV for, besides live viewing.

“TV” in this context appears to refer to the large stand-alone monitor that comes with a receiver built in. Highlight, “broadcast/over-the-air only is down from 16% in 2003 to 9%”
