OK, so movies every day at 8. But with series or dailies, how do you keep attendance (viewer) numbers going up instead of down? How does the program view series and dailies differently in figuring out popularity and attendance (viewers)?
Let me show you one of the ways I organize the daily schedule, and get your comments:
17:00-19:00 Kids shows
19:00-20:00 News and actuality
20:00-22:00 Action, Comedy, Drama, Sci Fi
Even when I do this, and pick popular shows, I am only getting attendance (viewers) between 700,000 and 4 million - most ads don't work on an audience this small. I also run promotional campaigns which don't seem to help that much.
How does the math behind this program work? Does each show bascially have an optimal time slot? Can only certain shows get viewers of more than 5 million, while some can never get that many? Do the shows before and after a certain show have any effect on its number or type of viewers?
