    TV companies get a readout on how many tvs in the nation are tuned into their station, and estimating 2 tvs per house and the average 4 person family per house, making it 2 people per tv, then, say they have 250 tvs tuned int their station, they multiply that by 2 and get approximately 500 viewers for that station.
