Nielsen’s Ratings Problem Is A Total Glitch (LostRemote)
Nielsen Friday announced internal “ratings irregularities” that date back to March 2, 2014 and were “generally imperceptible until [the company] saw high viewing levels associated with fall season premiere week.” TVNewser The company will now reprocess all of the impacted data going back at least to Aug. 18 — for entertainment, news and syndicated shows. TVNewser The company Saturday released updated data for the week of Sept. 22, which was the first week of 2014-15 TV season. As suspected, the inaccurate data favored ABC programs while hurting ABC’s competitors. The restated numbers are being most closely watched for revisions to the primetime ratings as new fall shows had their premieres. In the tight evening news race, World News Tonight With David Muir, had its numbers revised down, but it didn’t change the outcome. Muir’s newscast still won the week in the demo, and NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams won among total viewers. HuffPost Nielsen, the leading global measurement company and provider of television ratings data, said in a press release Friday that “a technical error” resulted in incorrect data over the course of about seven months. WSJ The difference in what was misattributed was less than 0.05 of a ratings point for about 98 percent to 99 percent of broadcast and syndicated TV shows, Nielsen said. The error didn’t affect overall TV viewership numbers, only how that viewership was credited to particular networks. Cable TV ratings weren’t affected by the glitch, it said.

Time Out New York Film Critic Keith Uhlich Moves On

KeithUhlichLinkedInToday is Keith Uhlich‘s last day at Time Out New York. And in film journalism terms, fall is generally a pretty good time to exit. Last week came Gone Girl; this week arrives another high-aiming adult drama, The Judge, heralding the debut of the production company created by Robert Downey Jr. with his wife.

When Uhlich recently announced his exit, he referenced another movie:

As Quint says in Jaws, “You all know me. Know how I earn a living.” I’m a film critic by trade, and my byline isn’t going to go away. I’ve promised myself that you’ll see at least a weekly post from me with thoughts on the movies. Writing reviews is a crucial part of my life, and I don’t ever want to give that up. It’s what I do.

Martin Schoeller’s Pivotal Career Boost

Martin Schoeller is an award-winning photographer who for many years was on staff with The New Yorker. And as he reminds this week, his ascension to that position owes a great deal to a certain Oscar-winning actress.

MartinSchoellerNewYorker

In 1998, freelancer Schoeller counted just five assigned jobs – three of which were weddings. In 1999, the year he was hired by The New Yorker, that total would jump to 127.

Per Schoeller’s contribution to the Time Lightbox series “The Photo That Made Me,” it all changed for him after he was asked in 1998 to photograph Vanessa Redgrave for Time Out New York:

I had come across the Kino Fluorescent lighting system (a sort of fluorescent tube lighting) and started to incorporate it into my work. This started to change things: these lights really bring out a subject’s eyes. And because I had adopted the style of a super close-up portrait, my work started to stick out. Back then the mainstream thing to do was a more distanced shot with a perfect background and styling – and it was also a time when Photoshop was really becoming a big part of things.

Time Out New York Responds to Biggest Fan

This is Diane, Time Out New York’s biggest fan. You might enjoy TONY, but Diane cannot be without it. As you can see from her poster board, she was angry because a “dung head” postal employee had (allegedly!) been stealing her magazine.

To TONY’s credit, it heard Diane’s pleas, and responded by hand-delivering her a copy of its latest issue. Well done, America.

Chicago Transplant Grapples with NYC Dating Scene ‘Ghosting’

ShutterstockWomanTextingSteve Heisler is a comedian and freelance writer based in Brooklyn who has contributed to GQ, Variety, The AV Club and other outlets. He has also this week, via Time Out New York, stepped on to the battle-of-the-sexes soapbox.

Heisler moved to New York five years ago and even though it happened to him personally as recently again as Christmas 2013, he still can’t quite come to terms with one particular wrinkle of the New York dating scene. A behavior and slang term that muddy the mental picture of Demi Moore crying while navigating a pottery spinwheel:

Have you heard the term ghosting? I hadn’t until moving to New York City from Chicago; now I use it regularly. It’s when you have a bunch of awesome dates with somebody, and then one day, they suddenly stop responding to your texts: They have ghosted you…
