  1. David, does the uplift data cover all channels inclusive of multichannels? Or only the networks’ primary channels? And does that data actually extend beyond the top 30 that you post after 7 days? I’m curious to see uplift for several multichannel shows, but not sure where to access those numbers.

  2. Guess people may be looking for consistency …reliability….like the old days…you turn on the TV and know that show will be there…on time and finish on time…I know I am tired of over runs…sitting around waiting for a show to start.. and chasing shows around….
