Simulmedia Converts New Viewers to Returning Program’s Premiere
Increase Ratings For Second Season Premiere of Cable Network’s Drama Series
A large cable network needed to promote the season premiere of a returning drama series. The network wanted to target viewers of two similar shows who may never have watched the returning series in order to increase ratings for the second season.

Simulmedia built a target audience of M18-49 who had watched at least one episode of either of two similar programs. Then Simulmedia used past viewing data about this target to predict the audience’s future viewing behavior.
