Advertisers Complain About "Plummeting" Ratings of NBC's Olympics Coverage

It's German -- I'm saying Die Media, Die!

NBC Universal and its advertisers are becoming worried about the success of Olympic broadcasting as TV ratings plunge and star athletes struggle, Variety reported on Tuesday.

Low TV viewing numbers and early exits from star athletes like Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka have caused anxiety from Olympic advertisers, Variety reported.

Thank you, Simon Biles.

Despite beating competitors' nightly program views, the Olympics are "clearly not what NBC, our agency or our clients were looking for," an unnamed media buying executive told Variety.

Last week AdAge reported that the networks' ratings are so low that they're down to claiming that Nielsen is "undercounting" their viewers, and demanding that Nielsen's ratings "accreditization" be suspended.

I assume the "supsension of accreditization" would be for the purpose of telling advertisers they're not entitled to rebates or make-goods* for ratings lower than promised. Because the ratings are wrong for Vaguely-Stated Reasons.

From Ad Age:

Media trade body VAB is calling on the Media Rating Council to suspend accreditation for Nielsen's national TV ratings amid continued problems stemming from the data giant's COVID-19 workarounds.

MRC accreditation is what gives Nielsen TV ratings their legitimacy to be used as currency in billions of dollars worth of network TV deals.

A commenter wondered whether the actual advertisers paying millions of dollars for a guaranteed level of viewership would buy that excuse.

Apparently not!

While primetime broadcast numbers have increased since the opening ceremony, advertisers, who have spent more that $1.2 billion on the games, are concerned about the sharp decline in views compared to the 2016 Rio Games, Variety reported.

Yeah I'll bet.

Here's a nice Olympics story: An Iranian judo player defected to Mongolia after his coach told him to deliberately lose a match, because if he'd won, he'd have to go on to wrestle an Israeli.

Well, the Iranian defector won a rare silver medal for Mongolia.

He dedicated the medal to... Israel.

"Thank you to Israel for the good energy. This medal is dedicated also to Israel," Mollaei told an Israeli Sports Channel, according to the Washington Examiner. "I hope the Israelis are happy with this win."

That said, to hell with the Olympics and to hell with NBC and to hell with the whole stinking corrupt totalitarian media.

* Make-goods are "free" advertising slots offered to advertisers when the network fails to deliver the ratings they promised. Obviously this costs the network the money they could have gotten from selling those slots, so they'd very much like to be able to tell advertisers "Nielsen's numbers are wrong, everyone loves us!"


288 if people were allowed to anonymously send us their viewing schedule through the mail, you'd see how very very high our ratings are!

Especially in the blue capital cities of swing states!!!

++++
This is something a lot of people don't know about TV advertising. There's a viewership floor in a lot of those contracts. "Buy this ad slot target least "X" consumers based on our ratings." If you don't hit "X" - like, for example, if your viewership sinks by a third - the purchasers have recourse. They can demand that you deliver the eyeballs, and if that means running your ads more times at no charge, then so be it. It's sort of like an "in-kind" refund.

42 The bids on future Olympics are gonna be smaller. In pro sports, this is starting to have an effect, especially in the NFL. The salary cap is shrinking.

The fact that it is nbc is an issue

Years ago in a similar situation i remember what ever network it was actually broadcast things live in the middle of the night for those so inclined and then also broadcast them in prime time again.

But the biggest issue I think is that people like me, who were die heart sports fans and would watch any sports, have been totally turned off by woke politics. I wanted to watch sports to get away from life, not relive it. So they can go fuck themselves

==========

It was always going to take years to develop because these contracts last for years. The players and broadcasters didn't feel the pinch personally of the falling ratings, so when they were told to shut up by outside forces they felt free to ignore them and double down.

Suddenly, that record breaking contract can't get extended at the same rate, much less at a higher rate, even though someone had a great season last year. Weird. It can't be the wokeness, because he'd been doing it for at least five years, since right after he signed his contract initially. No, it's gotta be something else.

I've had it with these obnoxious spoiled brats, their America-hating Commies for Dummies bullshit, and the media's insistence we adore and worship every thing they say and do. Imagine if someone like Tom Brady decided at halftime in the Super Bowl that he just wasn't feeling it and wouldn't play in the second half. He'd be savaged by the media, his GOAT status revoked, and be called a pussy for the rest of his life. But we're not even allowed to question Simone Biles' chickenshit decision. To the contrary, she should be celebrated for her weakness.

Not at all. This will *not* be the outcome. What I think is a lot more likely is a wave of consolidation, down to maybe two or four networks (because three is an unstable number). They will follow the NYT/WaPo split (State/IC vs. Party/LE alignment). The ad rates will fall but not to zero, and the difference will be made up by the oligarchs who subsidize them. Total control of messaging is far more important than profitability.

160 The Olympics and all sports rely on fans and viewers who want to escape from their everyday troubles for a time.

It's hard for viewers to escape COVID worries. real or imagined, when the Olympic stands are totally empty and all the team members and staff on the sidelines are wearing masks. Because of COVID.

This is partly why US sports TV ratings were down a lot last year. Watching a no-specators competition on TV is not the same as watching one with spectators. The leagues tried to compensate with recorded crowd noise in the TV and radio feeds, but it didn't help a lot.

-----------------
We usually binge-watch series at my house. On a typical night, we might take in five or six episodes of one show. We MOW through seasons.

And when you do this - take in almost an entire season in the span of a week sometimes - you start to notice certain patterns across shows.

Our favorite game to play is "pinpoint when the ratings started to drop." The female actor outfits change. The language changes. Odd scenes like characters in their apartments in various stages of undress start to pepper in.

If you were watching one show a week like on broadcast, you'd probably never notice.

Oprah will do a 1 on 1. This was a calculated move and a good one for her long term income stream. She is a woman, black AND mentally ill. She hit the jackpot in the new Woke Amerika.

That's not terribly compelling evidence she's a SJW. Unless you paid attention, that's the story most people heard about Taylor. I've talked with plenty of non-SJWs who were shocked to learn that Taylor was standing next to her boyfriend who had just shot a cop when she got shot.

Oddly enough, I just finished a bio of Magda Goebbels written by Hans-Otto Meisner, whose dad was chief of the presidential chancellery during the Reich. Meissner states that Magda, though born Protestant and converted Catholic, was actually in sympathy with Buddhism and always had some Buddhist writings on her night table wherever she went.

Apparently, when Magda told her best friend that she and Goebbels would poison their children at the end so everyone would die with the Fuhrer, she justified it by saying, "I believe in Buddhism, you know. We don't die. We just go through a dark door into another life."

Interesting, if true.

233 Simone was having a bad day, and not living up to they hype she helped produce with the GOAT tat and embroidery on her uniform. IMO it was fear of doing poorly that caused her distress, and a little bit of the fact that Adderall is banned in Japan, I don't know if they gave athletes a waiver. If there is any connection to Nasser, it's because (as usual) people won't STFU about the abuse and have to keep reminding everyone about it. It does not help victims to have the scars ripped off every so often

So if trees which provide shade are racist then obviously enjoying a hot summer day outside in the shade is racist too

Right. Bad testing methodology can be overcome so long as it remains consistent. If it's consistent, you can still do an apples-to-apples comparison in that metric (in this case, the test positivity rate). The rate itself might no have bearing on reality (sick people) and you would need to find a way to adjust the figures - but you can do a time-based comparison within the data set reliably enough.

290 Its been suggested that Biles was using Adderall and, if so, it is indeed banned in Japan.

But you can get replacement medication - it depends on what Biles was using it for. ADD is a general diagnosis in today's world, too general in my opinion. If she was using amphetamines for that, then I would suggest she might have needed them to give her a concentration or performance edge. And that would be wrong. Especially if she was taking over 25MG a day.

If she has been diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum, then there are other meds that work much like Adderall and are not going to be banned in Japan. It depends on the type of issues she was having as to what might work best, but there are alternatives to amphetamines. I hate that I know so much about this subject, no one should have to know this stuff.

So I called them back and talked to his admin and she explained that he immediately Rxs these for any of his patients as soon as he knows they're infected. Among the scripts is HCQ (the rest was a 50k IU Vit D bomb, Zinc Sulfate, Dexamethasone, and a Z-pack).

I've taken two doses so far. I am now not displaying symptoms. No fever, no congestion, no nothing. I'm convinced HCQ works.

I'm glad in a way that the gymnastics usa org is getting their reward for being a shithole org that does no favors to the girls that have been abused under their watch. The infamous DR was not the only one I'm afraid. Girls gymnastics has a creepy vibe. My 02 cents. Not all girls were abused but the pattern was there.

2. Which test kit is being used? (There are over 200 entities with test kits authorized under an EUA from the FDA)
3. How many cycles of PCR replication are being applied?
4. How sensitive is the particular test kit being used?
5. What is the definition of a "case" of COVID? (Are clinical criteria applied?)

Some news sites are saying that she quit because of BLM. They wanted her to protest, she didn't want the controversy, and quit rather than lose sponsorships or face backlash from the Olympic Committee. BLM was threatening to "cancel" her. She is a fan of Kaep, was pleased to see Mary Bono resign over not being a fan of political athletes.

Jump it early, you should be good to go. Sit around waiting until you need to be intubated to maintain your sats, a different course of events will unfold. Its the perfect political weapon. It poses no real risk to the "initiated". Everyone else they can scare spitless.

And why would the primary care docs be doing this on their own, if it didn't work . . . They do it, because it keeps their patients out of the hospital. Why isn't the CDC recommending this . . . less risk than taking a shot...

Also when the USA team, as a whole, wins, usually the media all cry because all their prewritten pieces that run every 2 years are about how we're not as good as we think we are.

NBC's shit ratings also probably have to do with their truly awful host who can barely put a sentence together (all of whom fit into the affirmative action category) and their inability to properly schedule tape delayed programming.

The advertisers should sue because NBC is putting out a shit product that's apparently being directed/ coordinated by complete imbecile (probably people unqualified, but who check the right boxes)

470 461 Oh, haha, Scarlett Johansson is suing Disney over their Black Widow bungling. She's mad because some great portion of her share was supposed to come from theatrical box office but her agent apparently did not include streaming revenue in that number. Seems like a dumb mistake, but Disney is awful too, so into the octagon they go!

They filmed in 2019 when MCU movies were regularly making more than $750 million worldwide. The premiere access on Disney+ model wasn't anything more than a proposal languishing on some VP's desk.

That it wasn't included in the original contract was understandable. That her agent didn't get something the second Disney decided to give Mulan the online premiere is flabbergasting.

Yep, we were very close with our daughter and Dressage. Olympic coaches said our daughter had a lot of Olympic potential, unfortunately we did not have the $500,000 horse to go with it. Thank God our daughter is practical (she got it from her mom) and backed off to focus on college. She still rides but has knee issues due to all the intense training she did when she was younger.

Her routine is too dangerous for incompetents to try, which is what they'd have to do to have an outside chance at coming close to her and they would probably break their necks.

To further clarify I haven't critiqued her withdrawal so maybe nurse wasn't sideswiping me.

I have personally vowed not to waste my time defending those who hate me when I could be doing something better. It probably doesn't make me a good Christian but I would rather spend my time defending people who wouldn't as soon see me dead.

She's 24 now. No one forced her to be there. If having a bad life is a perpetual excuse or get-out-of-jail-free card, well, I've got some sad news for you: most of us have sob stories of one sort or another. But most of us do have the God-given attributes or opportunities to compete at the top of any field of endeavor. There's got to be a word for this wretched insistence that I feel bad for people who have it better than I ever will because they had something bad happen to them on the way to the top.

From what I can see, the Olympics tends to ruin the lives of a lot of the athletes. They intensively train and compete, and when that's over, they wander off without direction or purpose.

Simone Biles supposedly said some anti-American things. Meh. She knows nothing. I hope the Olympics have not cursed her life.

509 "My understanding, from when Charlie Kirk said dumb things about her, is that she dropped out because IOC told her after she arrived in Japan that her routine was "too dangerous", whatever that means."

That's one of four reason's that have given

1) The IOC banned her routine (that was based on the male difficulty level) because it's risky for women and they didn't want other women attempting it and injuring themselves. Having to create a new routine from scratch in the time left would have been extremely difficult if not impossible.

2) Japan Olympic Cmte banned an ADHD drug that she is proscribed and she would not have been able to compete effectively.

3) Her first routine was poor and she didn't want to risk her legacy of near perfection

4) depression ranging from "not having fun" to the trauma of being a survivor of sexual abuse

I'm not sure which of those is true, or PR or merely speculation. I think some of her fans let sympathy over her sexual abuse cloud their judgement. I also think her timing hurt her most - people are tired of American athletes behaving like spoiled brats while representing America on foreign soil. Her assoc with BLM and Kapernick didn't help

It's all based on the idiot-understanding of gdp. They think that cities with big gdp vs rural or semi rural areas mean that that's where the wealth comes from what they don't get is that gdp is mostly calculated by final sale or export. Where do we export from? Ports. Ports are old and blue. Duh.

Of course, in 2024, NBC may ask for less money per commerical, but that assumes the big corporations who advertise are getting smarter.
