SO ALL THIS JUST HAPPENED AND WE NEED TO TAKE A MOMENT BECAUSE BRYAN
REBLOGGING BECAUSE #TURDUCKEN TONIGHT!!!!!
We are frequently asked how fans of #Hannibal can help increase the ratings. Whereas watching the episodes live or by DVR within 3 days is crucial for the show’s Nielsen ratings, those viewings are measured only for Nielsen families. So if you’re not a Nielsen family, your multiple viewings each week are not tracked by Nielsen. But … there is a way non-Nielsen families can increase ratings.
The Nielsen ratings also take into account tweets sent during the airing of each episode. And the good news is that everyone’s — not just Nielsen families’ — tweets count. Although the measurement of tweets is quite complicated, we do know that they are tracking tweets from unique tweeters. This means that fans who have not been sending tweets during Friday’s episodes can really make a difference! (And there’s an added bonus to live tweeting: interacting with the cast, producers and fans of Hannibal makes for a really entertaining evening. We promise.)
Let’s make a huge push to get as many fans as possible to send tweets using the hashtag #Hannibal during Friday’s broadcasts. We’ll start at 10 pm EDT and continue for the next few hours as the show airs across the U.S. Again, it is crucial that you use #Hannibal in your tweets to make sure they are counted. And encourage your friends and family members to do the same!
A little psychic driving of the Nielsen tweeting numbers never hurt anyone.
If you’re a fannibal and you’re not on twitter, PLEASE join us!! Twitter Fannibals are very nice and welcoming and live tweeting is SUPER fun!! The cast and crew live tweet with us and they’re all really funny and extremely interactive (especial Bryan Fuller, NBCHannibal, DLC, and Martha De Laurentiis herself). Consider making one just for live tweeting on Fridays if you don’t want to use twitter in general. It will really help with the ratings. If you follow me, I’d be more than happy to welcome you into my little group of friends/Fannibal Family :3 A link to my personal and Fannibal twitters are in my blog description and in this post. ((I do use both for live tweeting because I’m crazy.)) Hope you join us!!
PLEASE JOIN US TONIGHT, FANNIBALS!!!!
