© Copyright 2017, DRMETRIX LLC. All rights reserved. Rankings are from 12/28/2015 thru 12/25/2016. Occurrence data is collected on a 24/7 basis from monitored national cable networks. Short-form includes spots 5 minutes or less in length. Long-form includes programs of 28:30 in length. Spend index is based on a projection of direct response media expenditures with top long-form and short form campaigns earning a spend index score of 100 and all other advertisers calculated in comparison. The index also takes into account network and ROS daypart mix, and whether spots are airing in national or local “cue tone” breaks. Short Form Products are “call-to-order” campaigns with price disclosed in the spot. ASD represents “average spot duration” and is calculated by taking the total duration of detected spots divided by total units. DRMetrix is a media monitoring and research company specializing in the direct response television marketplace. Phone (951) 234-3899. E-mail: [email protected]
