I got a 50 rating and a 50 share
Neilsen ratings are simple; one point for every percentage of housesholds equipped with TVs tuned in. Shares, on the other hand, are the percentage of TVs actually turned-on watching something. So to have a 50 in both would mean that every TV in America was on and only half of them were watching Run-DMC.
I think it might be a bit different back in 1984.
