I'm most interested in knowing how this will affect soaps.
I keep hearing that DAYS brings the most traffic to the NBC website.

i've been debating about that...i'm not sure it will affect Days ratings b/c I don't think they air the same commercials online as they do in the show.

I tend to watch Days on line (next day) more often than my DVR and rarely live. The commercials are definitely not the same. So, it doesn't seem my viewing would count, even if I was part of the Nielson "family".

The one thing about on-line viewing, versus DVR, is there's no way to fast forward through the commercials. And, each commercial break tends to show the exact same ads. It's really boring. Worse yet, if you want to rewatch a particular act, you have even more ads to sit through.

I understand that this is all about advertising, but I've never watch any show on line that had the same ads as the live show. Am I just watching the wrong shows????

I haven't seen that either. I also hate watching when I can't get through an advertisement if I want to- there used to be a way to get around it on Hulu, I think, but that was years ago.

I'm really curious how this will work. To my thinking, it's not just the ads during an online viewing that matter, it's all the crap around the player (if you can't go full screen, for some reason).

So, are they just adding the numbers to the viewing numbers? That'd be interesting in trying to figure out year-over-year differences.
