Orlins’ problem is that fewer than 115,000 American homes are tuned into 3-D channels at any one time. That’s less than a hundredth of the 20.2 million-strong audience that saw television’s highest-rated show ‘‘NCIS’’ this week. 3-D viewership is so tiny that The Nielsen Co.’s methods are unable to capture any meaningful data about viewers’ programming preferences.
Yes, and I don't expect it to change. 3D may be a thrill for the occasional movie, but for everyday viewing? 3D golf??? Give me a break!!! If I want to get sick to my stomach I'll go on a real roller coaster, and the last time I checked out 3D at an in-store display it didn't look good at all.
