What Was Said

“In a hypothetical scenario, what if Netflix releases a movie that is projected to open at $15 million, but only opens to $9 million?

“If that asset is perceived as a failure and then, four weeks later or five weeks later, I put it into an ecosystem where 50 million people watch it, it’s a giant hit for me. But now my consumer has been told by you [in the press] that is a failure, when that’s not the full business story.” — Netflix film chief Scott Stuber, Variety

David Bray summarises the latest Numeris PPMs

David Bray (David Bray & Partners) leads us through the most recent broadcast survey across five major markets. We know we're going to catch flack for including the CBC's numbers, but the pubcaster is a paid-up member of Numeris, which funds the survey, and we the taxpayers support the corp. The fact that it is leading in three of the five survey markets suggests a lot of Canadians like the brand and its radio personalities. A deeper dive into the numbers is available on the Bray & Partners website.

Without further ado, here are the latest Numeris PPM radio ratings spanning the thirteen weeks between Aug. 26 and Nov. 24.
