Salt Lake City was followed by Houston, Austin, Los Angeles and San Francisco, according to NBC. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh; Norfolk, Va.; Jacksonville, Fla.; Buffalo and Richmond, Va., had the highest ratings for the game.

Account for 75 degree weather on that day, Tivo, internet streaming, Nielsen's awful paneling and the fact that football crazy Texans like to get together in large groups and then you should get closer to whatever truth you are looking for.

Or how about you look at paneling for radio, internet streaming and TV for football recruiting today and then take a look at Spring practice content and its viewership to triangulate your reasearch in order to make a reasonable deduction.

Others in this thread have said things along those lines to which I would say that Nielsen has been around for decades and I'd think their service would be smart enough by now to accumulate those kinds of factors and discount/measure them so that the end data provided is still valid and useful.
Afterall this is not a government service supported by taxpayers, rather its an entity in the private sector that has obviously competed successfully enough to survive by way of the info it's provided its customers.

It is not smart enough, nor is it capturing any of the broadcasts via the internet. Nielsen has segmented itself to report on different formats, but not roll up.

Please do not make Nielsen the poster child of a public vs private debate, you do not do yourself any favors positioning your arguement. Anyone in the media business can attest to that. Nielsen is in a fight to stay relevant as TV's eyeballs and managed frequency erode.

I was just curious. It wasn't that I was disagreeing with anything you had said, I just was trying to get a fix on where you were coming from.

Of all the people I know, be it here, Dallas, Austin - wherever; I don't know one person that participates in the Nielson Ratings system. In fact, the only one that I know that has ever participated is Steph and she said it sucked.

I honestly don't have any opinion of Neilsons service, rather I'm merely observing there's customers in their market who value their service even if you don't.

You know how I know the ratings are bull? You mean to tell me that Phoenix isn't in the top cities for watching the game? Really?

I just saw ratings were actually higher this year so maybe that changed Houstons ratings..that is odd that Houston was so low.

I dont always watch all of it because im not a big NFL fan, only Texans. Houston is more of a "get together city" anyway, if that makes sense to anyone else....

Winning or losing, Pittsburgh is a football town.

How many games have you seen where the "cheeseheads" are in attendance at the opponents stadims?

Winning or losing, Green Bay is a football town. Huge waiting list for tickets for many many years.

Reliant stadium is sold out for every game. How many "fans" show up? I see lots of empty seats before, during, and even more empty seats before the game is even over. Gotta beat the traffic mentality.

Houston has a few very good, die hard fans, but Houston is a jumping on the bandwagon when the team wins kind of city. Always has been.

Think we will ever see hundreds of Texan flags being waved in our opponents stadiums, even if we are winning?

Flame me if you want, but that is the way I see it.

amen
