TVision Insights’ 4Q16 report offers a different way to look at TV viewing. Using “vision technology,” TVision says it can measure attention to TV on a second-by-second basis, calling attention the “starting point” for consumers moving closer to brands. Which could come in handy for some shows right about now. "Upfront season is a critical time of year for advertisers. As the media landscape continues to evolve, understanding when, where and how attention occurs is key to making the best advertising decisions," Dan Schiffman, CRO and co-founder at TVision Insights, tells Cynopsis. "Our Quarterly Attention Report is laser focused on helping advertisers understand which networks, dayparts and programs will yield maximum impact for the lowest cost." The top primetime TV shows, ranked by attention, include CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Fox’s Sleepy Hollow and NBC’s Superstore. Cable toppers were Travel’s Hotel Impossible, Nat Geo’s Years of Living Dangerously and BBC America’s Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. Rankings are based on the sum of seconds of attention divided by the sum of seconds a person is in the room.
