RBR-TVBR observation: It would be interesting to see the multiplatform audience numbers after this takes place. Add them all together and you may have a heck of a pitch for the next one. A great example of using each and every asset to cross-promote and maximize audience – from FM HD multicast channels all the way up to live television.
