07:41 EDTNLSNNielsen upgraded at Bernstein
As noted earlier, Bernstein upgraded Nielsen to Outperform from Market Perform. The firm thinks the stock's decline on worries about the TV ad market and a belief that Nielsen's status as the dominant provider of TV rating sis in jeopardy is overdone. The firm believes that the company's position in TV ratings is safe because its product is superior to the main competitor and switching costs for customers would be high.

13:17 EDTNLSNNielsen to restate some TV rating due to software glitch, Variety reports
Nielsen (NLSN) acknowledged it uncovered a software error on October 6 that had resulted in TV ratings being allocated incorrectly among broadcast and syndication programming since March 2 and that it would restate the ratings accordingly to fix the errors, reported Variety. The company said 98% to 99% of ratings would not be affected by more than .05 of a ratings point and a person familiar with the situation said some TV networks have an expectation that some of their new fall programming will see a very slight uplift due to the restatement, the report noted. The big four broadcast networks are operated by CBS (CBS), Comcast (CMCSA), Disney (DIS) and 21st Century Fox (FOXA). Reference Link
