how ratings on TV shows are generated

,and does our heavy useage of on demand network replay service shows watched count as part of ratings and so longevity of good shows. Such as Criminal Minds-Beyond Borders  New show with Gary Sinese that died because it was slotted after all the reality shows were over at 10 pm. Also,does making a choice in the on demand menu of like or dislike have any effect or not ?

Our Thanks to any one with knowledge

  • Hi Wmwardwell,

    Cox doesn't have any control of how TV shows are ranked. The primary source of audience measurement information in the television industry comes from the Nielsen Company. To learn more about how TV shows are rated, use the links below.
