Usage By TV Program Sources & Ratings Erosion: 1950s-2017

As more and more channels became available to a typical American TV home, set usage increased significantly while average tune-in levels per channel declined. In the early-1950s, shows aired nationally by ABC, CBS and NBC captured 60% of all set usage across a typical day. Today that figure is a mere 12%. This report describes the changing distribution of all set usage by number of channels viewed and distribution of TV usage by program source (including SVOD) and daypart. (1 page text; 3 tables)
