Rising popularity of News and Music channels is altering viewership  patterns

Industry estimates suggest that more than 80% of media money on television is chasing prime-time audiences. Is that a true reflection of audience composition across various dayparts? And does the ‘metro stereotypes’ of an executive coming late from work also reflect in non-metros?

Our detailed analysis of latest TAM data, suggests that rising popularity of News and Music channels specifically are altering the audience’s viewership patterns drastically. In ‘non-metro’ for example, the afternoon peak of audiences is almost as much as the traditional primetime. In this first part of this series, we look at Males viewership trends.
