In the age of Netflix, Hulu and other streaming services, it’s surprising to find out just how popular one current TV series is – Big Bang Theory. Nevertheless, CBS’ hit show – an old-fashioned multi-camera comedy about four nerdy men and the three women who put up with them – is not only TV’s number one show, but also the highest-rated sitcom since Friends.

So what are Big Bang Theory’s audience demographics and what do they tell us about the television consumer market today? Statistics from 2015 by tvbythenumbers provide a little insight.

It was a Thursday 8pm time slot for the popular family series, and rose to the top sport in viewers fast, with 14.5 million. Holding the broad age range of 18-49 year old viewers.

Backing up this broad age range is backed up by IMDB’s ratings demographics for the show. The chart below shows that females are higher among the raters for this show on IMBD and the age ranges broadly from 18 years – 45+ years.

So from these stats we’re able to summarize that Big Bang Theory has a wide range of age demographics within its audience base, while maintaining on average a higher female audience base.

Game of Thrones is definitely a show that rose to global popularity, and with so many people watching the show it’s interesting to look into the Game of Thrones audience demographics. Not too long ago, a survey went out to fans of both the books and TV show on Time Capsule, collecting information about the respondent’s age, gender and opinions on the show.

The results of the survey have been posted and here we explore a little from these results.

According to this survey, the average GoT fan is a male, aged 18-29. This isn’t too surprising, although the type of people surveyed needs to be taken into consideration. A vast majority of the respondents were book-only fans and possibly found their way to the survey from a link on reddit.

If we look at the voters from the Game of Thrones TV imdb page, there’s almost 500,000 more males than females. This graph also matches the results from the Time Capsule survey, in that the average voter age is 18-29, but the 30-44 range isn’t too far behind.

This viewership breakdown by Sisense shows the increase in popularity over time. As the graph shows, the GoT TV show grew year-on-year in viewership as new seasons were released. The Season 4 premiere had 6.6 million viewers during the 9pm broadcast, which was up 2.2 from the previous year. The numbers don’t account for the real viewership though, as it’s difficult to know the amount of illegal downloads. GoT is reported as the most pirated show in history.

Demographics of College Students

demographics of college students

 

Demographics of college students show that those studying at elite colleges are even richer than experts realized, according to a new study based on millions of anonymous tax filings and tuition records.

At almost 40 of the colleges in the US (Including five Ivy League) more students are from the top 1 per cent on the income scale than from the entire 60 per cent.

One in four students in the 1 percent attend an “elite” college (universities that typically top the annual rankings).

Where today’s 25-year-olds went to college, grouped by their parents’ income:

About four in 10 students from the top 0.1 percent attend an Ivy League or elite university, roughly equivalent to the share of students from poor families who attend any two- or four-year college.

Although it is easy to imagine the “typical” dorm life of college, this image actually applies to very few students.  Only 14% of all college students – or 25% of full-time students – live on campus. Meanwhile, 24% of students (in both the full-time and part-time statistics) live at home with their parents. In other words, just as many students are typical on-campus college students as are commuting to school from their parents’ house.

Why, then, do we continue to think of college more as “Animal House” than “Community”?
