    This will be the thread for the 2017-2018 Nielsen DMA rankings which will come out in a month or so since it is getting close to the fall tv season. I just wanted to get this thread going before the rankings are released.

    What markets do you guys think may change spots this year?

    Can we just wait (and take this post down) until the actual rankings come out, instead making a "placeholder" thread? It's pretty wasteful to post it when you don't have the link to the rankings. Someone did this last year.

    It's like what Dean Wormer said in Animal House: "Acting like mardek1995 is no way to go through life, son."

    I'm calling it now, Columbus stays at #32
    And Cincinnati and Cleveland drops at least 1 spot each.

    We are at the bottom of the top 20. maybe if KXTV was watchable it would be higher.

    It doesn't work like that...market size is determined by the number of households in any given area. Market ranking doesn't change due to one station under-performing in the ratings

    I currently don't have access to the Breakroom (including the Speculatron), but did someone think the unwatchability of the KXTV of today (who is a social media disaster fest, like the WTSP of today) has made some people destroy their TVs?

    I know West Michigan is DMA 44 surprise West Michigan has been Top 50 for decades feels more like a top 60 or 70 DMA for West Michigan. Don't know if West Michigan will lose a few spots or stays the same at 44 DMA.
