Ratings, Recaps, Reviews

Friday 6/6, 1:30pm
Stephen F. Austin Hotel

Kyle Killen knows more about ratings than he cares to, and he’s going to break it down for you starting with who, what, when, where, or IF watching matters. Dissecting Neilsen, DVRs, live viewing, social media, and streaming, he’ll answer questions like: What’s a share? How everyone you know can be talking, tweeting and watching a show, but it still gets canceled? And why do ratings equal cancellation on one network but a hit on another? Tune in to find out how it all translates into keeping your favorite show on, or its eventual demise.

Following his 15 minute presentation, Killen sits down with top critics Tara Ariano (formerly of TV Without Pity, now of Previously.TV), Alan Sepinwall (Hitfix), Matthew Zoller Seitz (Vulture), and Todd Vanderwerff (A.V. Club) to discuss TV’s growth in the past decade, where its going, and their contributions to a show’s fate.
