    We all know they exist. Is there anyway to see SiriusXM ratings?

    are there really 6 people car pooling listening to Stern? :spit:

    The only numbers that are trackeable are the online listening and apps. Nothing from receivers, though, because those don't send any data back to the host.

    They definitely exist, a couple talk hosts have mentioned getting their internal ratings and they have to show something to advertisers regarding how much exposure their ads will get.

    Oh they exist just not for paying customers. SiriusXM customers should demand those ratings be published.

    Dawg the best barometer for somehting like this is the latest Sirius poll where they asked a few thousands subs if they would leave sirius if THSS was no longer a part of the lineup and the answer was shocking- I think 8 out of 10 said they would keep siri without wiggy. Will look for a link

    Opie made reference to this when they were ripping Jason Ellis a new one after he claimed his show was bigger than O&A.

    Extrapolating from that would be at least as accurate as the random phone sampling for political issues. If you had some relatively smart people working on it they could probably narrow it down to a reasonable confidence interval.

    They will never release them. The fact that they don't release them tells you that Howard's and the rest of the shows' ratings are shit on the service. I mean if Howard really had 9 million listeners, they would advertising it everywhere.

    This has to be true because I and others have stilettos that work even though we don't have subscriptions.

    But they have to be able to track web and app listeners like he said. I would also like to know if anybody downloads his show. Unlike other Sirus talk shows its replayed non-stop during the week, why do you need it on demand?


    I would also like to know his Q rating.

    There is no talk back system for receivers so there is no way for sirius to monitor what is listened to by sat. They can monitor online and they extrapolate. They also use personal logs from radio listeners who are paid a buck for a weeks listening habits by arbitron. From there arbitron comes up with numbers that are most likely fully fabricated where sirius is concerned. Now if sirius really wanted the numbers they could offer a huge discount for listeners to fill out a time sheet but they really dont care. They can get what they need buy playing with arbitron. There was also talk of some listening device that arbitron used to detect what radio stations were on in cars. Never saw a confirmation on that.

    I have heard Jay Thomas say that the advertisers are very happy with responses to ads and see large actual sales increases after running ads on Howard and his channels.

    I'd say he probably has in the 100's of thousands possible listeners but that's it.

    I would also like to know the ratings on AGT. Who is watching that shit?
