Nielsen Extended Ratings
Did you know that USA Today carries the weekly Nielson ratings? They publish the usual list of Top Shows. They also carry some extended ratings information. Some examples are "Top Cable Shows," "Top Broadcast News," and "18-49 year olds". This week a new category showed up. Look at the list below, and see if you can guess the demographic.
