“NBC (GE) struggles in the broadcast ratings. But it has a few shows that do pretty well online. So it’s no surprise that they’d become the first network to announce they’ll start releasing online ratings for specific shows, like “30 Rock” and “Heroes.” (via SAI)
Nielsen will be handling the numbers duties and it will be interesting to see exactly how they determine viewership.

Having an industry-wide metric that all the networks and advertisers can agree on would be a big step towards making it easier to cashify video content on the internet.
