Only new ad executions considered, airing weeks of Jan. 1 to Nov. 30, 2007. The Likeability Score is the percentage of TV viewers who report to like "a lot" an ad they were exposed to during the normal course of viewing TV (among those recalling the brand of the ad). These scores are then indexed against the mean score for all new ads launching during the period (Likeability Index). 100 equals average. For example, with a likeability index of 219, the top ranked Disney Parks ad was liked more than twice as much as the average new commercial during 2007 (January - November).
