Americans seem oddly taken with "The Donald & Hillary Show," but despite the huge ratings the two antagonists drew during their final prime-time joust, there will be no second season. According to Nielsen live-plus-same-day data, Wednesday night's presidential debate averaged a whopping 71.6 million viewers across 13 networks, shattering the previous high of 66.9 million viewers set by the analogous 1992 showdown between Pres.
We're already a month into the fall TV season, and while live ratings continue to fray like a moth-eaten sweater, a handful of new shows are doing their part to uphold the structural integrity of primetime.
The first batch of C3 ratings data for the 2016-17 TV season has been processed by Nielsen, and while the raw numbers suggest that some shows are having better luck at regaining lost commercial impressions when you count three days of viewing, time-shifting remains the greatest threat to the traditional advertising model.
On the heels of a record-shattering opening performance, the TV ratings for second presidential debate represented a return to normalcy of sorts -- or at least as close to "normal" as this election cycle is ever likely to get.
With the first quarter of the 2016 NFL regular season on the books, media executives and Monday morning quarterbacks of all stripes are engaged in a whodunnit of sorts, as the enigma that is the league's shrinking TV ratings has become something of a locked-room murder mystery.
Despite an Olympian effort on NBC's part to promote its new sci-fi adventure series, "Timeless" last night put up unspectacular ratings numbers in its premiere outing.

Months after taking the homegrown show to market, CBS has secured a complex series of syndication deals for The Good Wife. In a multiwindow deal that involves a basic cable network (Hallmark Channel), a pair of streaming partners (Amazon Prime and Hulu Plus) and a weekend broadcast syndication schedule, CBS has put together a package that reflects the increasing fragmentation of the traditional television audience.
It may not be as memorable a milestone as Ohio State establishing itself as the inaugural national champion of the College Football Playoff era or Golden State's unprecedented 24-0 run at the start of the 2015-16 NBA season, but in becoming the first network to successfully negotiate deals that include an out-of-home TV audience, ESPN's ad sales team this summer accomplished a feat that no group in the history of the medium had ever managed to pull off.

After getting off to a promising start, the first official week of the 2016-17 broadcast TV season ended with a dull thud, as viewers on Sunday night largely ignored the networks' scripted efforts. ABC's Sunday night lineup took a particularly big hit, as the network's primetime (7 p.m.-11 p.m.)
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
