  1. This is almost meaningless without the detail such as shares and age groups. If it is a bunch of retired old people watching KIII, then the demos are better and ad rates are higher at the other stations. If they are going to put a press release, give some facts. KIII is a news organization after all. Is it 1,000 viewers or 20,000 viewers? Are the viewer in their 20's, 30's, 40's, etc.? Is KIII neck and neck with the other stations and only a few viewers ahead?
