Fox To Stop Using Live+Same Day Ratings

Fox has become the first broadcast network to cease using Live + Same Day Nielsen ratings, which it shares both internally and externally with media outlets. The network’s chairmen-CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman said the network will no longer issue those snapshot Nielsen numbers, instead holding out for three and seven-day delayed viewing ratings. Ironically, this move drops Fox from third to fourth place season-to-date.
