Three of Top Five TV Markets Lose Households

Nielsen just released its local television market estimates for 2013.  While the report shows no change in rankings for the top markets, it does show the number of TV Homes declined in New York (#1), Chicago (#3) and Philadelphia (#4).  Philadelphia showed the biggest drop, losing a little more than 44,000 households over the course of the year.  However, Los Angeles (#2) did see a big jump with an increase of nearly 54,000 households.

The decline in TV Homes reflects the trend across the U.S. with an overall drop of -475,620 households over a one year period.

The top 38 markets remained the same, with the shuffling beginning in market 39 as Grand Rapids-Kalamazoo-Battle Creek, MI moves up three spots from last year.
