The Nielsen IAG Top 10 Most Recalled In-Program Placements focuses on brand/product placements occurring in Drama/Sitcom programs on the broadcast networks during the April 14 to May 11 period. The Recall Score is the percentage of television viewers who can recall within 24 hours the brand/product of an In-Program placement they were exposed to during the normal course of viewing Network Dramas and Sitcoms. These scores are then indexed against the mean score for all placements occurring in this genre during the time period (Recall Index). 100 equals average.
Note: For this analysis, In-Program placements were only considered if the occurrence had visual elements (i.e., was "seen" on-screen) or both visual and auditory elements (i.e., was both "seen" and "mentioned"). Only first-run episodes were considered. Both planned and incidental exposures.
