11 Media Objectives, Strategies and Planning 6. Reach vs. Frequency vs. Continuity (Continuous Schedule)

12 Media Objectives, Strategies and Planning

13 Reach (Cume) The number of different or unduplicated households or persons that are exposed to a television program or commercial at least once during the average week for a reported time period. During the course of the schedule illustrated, seven different households were exposed to the spot at least once. Since each home represents 10 % of the universe, this makes the reach or cume 70%.

14 Media Objectives, Strategies and Planning Frequency Average number of times a household or a person viewed a given television program, station or commercial during a specific time period.

15 Media Objectives, Strategies and Planning Continuity/Continuous Schedule Advertising runs steadily and varies little. Compare with: Flighting and Pulsing with scheduling

16 Media Objectives, Strategies and Planning Rating (RTG or %): The estimate of the size of a television audience relative to the total universe, expressed as a percentage. The estimated percent of all TV households or persons tuned to a specific station. In the example, three of the 10 homes in the universe are tuned to channel 2. That translates to a 30 rating.

17 Media Objectives, Strategies and Planning RATING = households tuned in to a given program all households with television SHARE = households tuned in to a given program all households tuned in to TV at that time (HUT) (more simply: share measures the percentage of all TV sets in use watching a particular program) Here's an example: Your show is aired in a market that has 1 million television househo2lds; 400,000 are tuned in to you. Therefore: 400,000 1,000,000 =.40, or a rating of 40 At the time your show airs, however, there are only 800,000 households using television. Therefore, your share of the available audience is Share = 400,000 800,000 =.50, or a rating of 50 If you can explain why a specific program's share is always higher than its rating, then you understand the difference between the two.
