Apparently, to be “in”, you need to publish infographics. These days, we do put some in our projects (when relevant, of course), and our A.D. Lionel is the first one to sell their merits when it comes to understanding complex data.
So now, it’s our turn. US Television, an excellent U.S. blog about the tube, has recently published a hodgepodge of 118 infographics all about TV. Quality varies, but we selected 9 that we find are relevant for industry people. So, here they are, in no particular order:
- Glued to the Tube: The average American will watch 16 years of television during his/her lifetime.
- The Convergence of Film and Gaming: Exploring the worst-case scenario up to 2020.
- The State of Broadcast Television: In 2009, advertising revenues have decreased by 12%; all major broadcasters are losing money.
- Cutting the Cable, the State of Internet-Based TV : Workers who watch videos at work are 9% more productive.
- The Lifespan of a TV Show : Season 7, the deadly spiral.
- TV Viewing Habits : 19% of people solely watch scheduled TV, and 34% watch an equal amount of scheduled TV and new progamming.
- Evolution of the Television, 1926-2010 : 1926. First demonstration of a working mechanical television set.
- Online TV, the Newest Way to Watch TV is Not on Your TV : 54% of people watch online TV because they missed a specific programming when it aired.
- Americans & TV, How They’re Watching : 58% of people say they watch more TV on line than last year.
