    5+ isn’t a particularly helpful measure though. It did much better in the 18-49 demos and very well in “MHS with kids” which will count when it comes to advertising.

      I know what you’re saying. Helpful is debatable – to the general public total viewers is more interesting. To advertisers, their target demographic data is more important.

    Wouldn’t it be more accurate to display figures based off of actual programme data and not day part, not exactly capturing true viewing figures in my opinion.

      Could you expand on what you mean by that please? These figures are based off actual programme data.
