A thrifty marketer’s guide to some of TV’s most overlooked audiences

Just as sure as some big sloppy salmon is going to Augustus Gloop that Fish Tube of Internet renown, so too shall TV viewers, or at least the ones who still watch the commercials, age out of the upper reaches of the demo. Quantitative changes rather quickly become qualitative; differences in degree lead to differences in kind. Water gets hotter and hotter, and then all of the sudden it’s vapor; viewers become older and older, and the next thing you know they’re chaff.

(If Instagram is anything to go by, they’re all ripped to the gills on White Claw and solipsism, so no harm done.) With six weeks to go before the 2019-20 season gets underway, the median age of the broadcast primetime audience is 58.7 years old, TV usage among adults 18-24 is down 17 percent and the Big Four networks are averaging a 0.5 C3 rating in the 18-49 demo. In July, fewer than 795,000 members of the dollar demo watched the commercials on NBC each night, and the Peacock was the highest-rated network during the month. Currency deliveries were down 19 percent last month, which means that the promos for this fall’s new and returning series reached one-fifth as many demographically desirable viewers as they did in the year-ago period.
