Use Case #3: How to Evaluate the Viewers of a Hit Program
In addition to monitoring the overall health of a program, E-Score Programs Cable/Streaming also offers metrics that can help studios, advertisers, and brands better understand the viewer preferences and characteristics of a target audience. For this example, we took a closer look at 18-54 viewers who enjoy the hit Yellowstone spin-off series 1923 on Paramount+.
1923 is a strong performing series – posting a +58 Program NPS and exceeding the Streaming Program Category Average across other key metrics.
Evaluate viewer habits to identify what target audiences are looking for in new programming.
Viewers of 1923…
- Favor new shows that have plot twists/surprises over familiar storylines.
- Place a higher importance on new shows that feature strong storylines over familiar actors.
- Also heavily watch original streaming movies, dramas, comedies, and sci fi/fantasy programs.
Evaluate viewer psychographics using the Big Five Personality Traits to gain insights into the audience mindset, allowing you to identify the marketing messages that best reflect their personalities and values. Viewers of 1923 tend to have higher levels of emotional intelligence (Agreeableness), are empathetic (Neuroticism), and are more disciplined (Conscientiousness).
