    Now that is a good question. I'm sure Robin knows the answer.
    But I don't think that Chriza knows, though.

    well DBD, I'm glad you asked.

    The "fast national" ratings were report each day includes DVR viewership through 3:00 AM ET that night. Furthermore, advertising is sold on what's known as a "C3" basis. This means that all commercial viewership in the first three days of a broadcast (live or DVR) is used. So yes, DVR viewership is most definitely factored in.

    Nevertheless, it's important to keep in mind that DVRs are only in 38% of TV households, meaning the overwhelming majority of people doesn't have or use them. And the numbers reflect this: a recent report indicates DVR viewership on the broadcast networks only accounts for about 11.6% of a show's ultimate audience.

    I mean I'm not saying I want you to leave, but I don't watch House, therefore why the fuck would I be on a House message board?

    I want a "people meter"

    Nielsen collects data from two different samples: a "National Measurement" and a "Local Measurement." Households in each sample are given a device that tracks their viewing habits.

    The 9,000 participating households (over 18,000 people) in the "National Measurement" are outfitted with what's called a "Nielsen People Meter." This device measures two things - what program or channel is being watched and who in the household is watching. It accomplishes this by instructing each member in the household to press a button indicating that they have begun watching television on that particular set. This process allows Nielsen to electronically gather demographic information.

    Every night this data is transmitted to Nielsen Media Research's Operations Center in Dunedin, Florida. Around 8:00 AM ET the next day Nielsen releases the preliminary "fast national" ratings from this data. This is the information you see reported every morning on the site.

    That afternoon, around 3:00 PM ET, Nielsen releases the "final national" ratings. These are the revised numbers which take into account various scheduling changes from across the country, most notably those due to live events (such as "Sunday Night Football" on NBC). These "final national" ratings are what you see reported in places like The New York Times, L.A. Times and USA Today as well as the various "weekly roundup" press releases we post to the site.

    My good friend at work got one of those Arbitron meters and they paid him, his wife, and 2 of his kids 100 bucks a month to wear the meter. It "listens" to everything you hear throughout the day regardless of the source and sends the data back. They tried not wearing them and got e-mails informing them they wouldn't be paid if they tried to scam the device. He tried everything he could think of to trick it but nothing worked. Even putting it on the dog didn't work. Those devices are crazy smart.
