Popular Computations: Projecting Ratings

and CPP

PJ= Most recent share x year ago PUT

Impressions (000): Rating x UE in table 6

Cost Per Point (CPP) or Cost Per Thousand (CPM)

Cost of Spot/Rating = CPP

Cost of Spot/(000)= CPM

Example: Spot = $1000 / 5 rating = $200 CPP

Spot = $1000/500(000) GI = $2 CPM
