"All That" was a sketch comedy-variety show that featured original short comedic sketches and weekly musical guests aimed toward a younger audience.

Viacom Unveils Pioneering New Research That Decodes the Difference between Impressions and Engagement

Original Viacom Inc. Press Release via Business Wire:

Viacom Unveils Pioneering New Research That Decodes the Difference between Impressions and Engagement

Findings from Study Explored through Dynamic Interactive Exhibition in New York Headquarters;

Yale Center for Customer Insights and Spotify to Partner with Viacom and Study Attention Further

September 29, 2015 12:32 PM Eastern Daylight Time

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Viacom (NASDAQ: VIAB, VIA) today announced the findings of a first-ever Attention Study, which reveals the building blocks of consumer engagement in the economy of attention. Contrary to the conventional view that audiences are awash in distraction, the study reveals consumers feel empowered to choose where to focus and are more able than ever to engage deeply with the brands they love.

Viacom revealed findings from their groundbreaking Attention Study and brought research to life in an interactive exhibition at Viacom Headquarters in New York City. (Photo: Kim Herzog, Viacom)

The groundbreaking study, led by Viacom's Scratch division, applies the science of attention to the marketing discipline and delivers a powerful approach to creating engagement in a rapidly-evolving marketing environment. Informed by biometric audience analysis, quantitative surveys, and interviews with expert practitioners, the findings will be used with Viacom and its partners to help facilitate deep connections with consumers.

Specifically, the study finds that three-quarters (75%) say their ability to pay attention is getting better or staying constant, 70% feel they are paying the right amount of attention to the things in their lives, and 81% are intentionally limiting the amount of attention they give to various media. Their power allows consumers to dive deeper into what they love with others who share their interest - 76% consider themselves part of a fan community and nearly 2/3 of people say what they remember most they experienced with others.

Scratch's insights on breaking through to real engagement will be brought to life through a dynamic interactive exhibition at Viacom's New York headquarters from September 29-October 8. The experience includes initial biometric research on how different television show genres impact attention; a multitasking test, which neuroscientists say only 2.5% of the population can do effectively; a virtual reality demonstration of fully-immersive Viacom content experiences; examples of fandom expressed in increasingly rich ways; and case studies on breakthrough content and marketing and the link between context and attention.

Viacom's commitment to diving deeper into the attention arena will expand to partnerships with Yale Center for Customer Insights and Spotify. The work with Yale will entail conducting new research surrounding intent, aspiration, and media consumption, while Viacom will collaborate with Spotify to apply advanced insights to user engagement with content and experiences.

"We know that engagement is the apex for content makers and marketers, and applying the science of attention to marketing in this new way allows Viacom to help its partners connect with consumers in more impactful ways," said Anne Hubert, SVP and head of Scratch. "We know our audiences better than anyone in the world, and this Attention Study helps frame the job of marketers, brand builders and content makers in the economy of attention in which we are all operating. We have to move beyond simply counting eyeballs, clicks, ads viewed, and impressions delivered, and begin to value the mark made because of experiences delivered in all the places where consumers engage."

Viacom’s study proves the idea that the quality and type of attention is nuanced, and that collective attention, context and communities of fans are key elements in relationships between brands and consumer relationships.

Other findings from Scratch's Attention Study can be found at http://attention.viacom.com and include:

Collective Attention:

* 76% consider themselves part of a fan community

* Almost 2/3 of Millennials discover new things from their fan community

* 75% are influenced to watch content because "a lot of people are talking about it"

Deep Connection:

* Almost 50% would give up a week of social media in order to not miss the series finale of their favorite TV show; almost 1/3 would be willing to give up a night's sleep for it

* Nearly 25% have binge-watched their favorite show for eight or more hours

Attention and Distraction:

* 10% or less feel they are spending too little time on phones, emails, smartphone games, and social media

* 20% feel they are paying too little attention to celebrities

* 38% of Millennials said "Seeing someone naked" was distracting, but nearly twice that number said "getting a text message" was distracting

He started his acting career after being offered a guest role in the Australian television soap opera Neighbours as Alistair O'Laughlin. Rahart then went on to play the lead role of Sam on the hit ABC 3 series, Nowhere Boys. Extending his talent from TV series to features, Rahart landed a starring role in U.S. Nickelodeon original movie Liar, Liar Vampire, which airs on Nickelodeon in Australia this October.


Cosentino has been called "a supercharged showman" by News Corp, "the most dominant figure currently in Australian entertainment" by Radio 2GB and is said to "mirror the legendary Harry Houdini" by the LA Times. A true entertainment trailblazer, Cosentino was the first magician to have his own TV shows in Australia. These prime-time specials were a ratings bonanza, averaging 1.3 million viewers per episode (source: Oztam) and they have now been broadcast in over 40 countries. Cosentino is Live Nation Australia's highest selling touring act and in 2015 undertook his biggest live tour of Australia, selling out 13 shows in record time. This year, his Twisted Reality live show has been staged to full houses across Asia and New Zealand. Cosentino is quickly becoming an international phenomenon, racking up an impressive list of achievements. He has been awarded the prestigious Merlin Award, acknowledging him as the 'International Magician of the Year' (previous winners include David Copperfield, Penn & Teller and Criss Angel) and has recently been announced as the 'International Escape Artist of the Year'. Already regarded as this country's most successful magician, illusionist and escapologist, Cosentino continues to push the boundaries of what's possible both here in Australia and internationally.


Boyce Avenue is a Florida-based band, consisting of three brothers Alejandro, Fabian, and Daniel Manzano. In 2007, the band decided to start filming and posting videos on YouTube performing their own songs, as well as some of their favourite songs by other popular artists.

The band has also amassed 540,000 Twitter followers and over 2.9 million Facebook subscribers. Over the past three years, Boyce Avenue has played for over 400,000 people in 20 countries and five continents, including United States, Canada, Australia, Asia, Brazil, Europe and the United Kingdom.
ABOUT THE VERONICAS The Veronicas hail from Brisbane, Australia, where twin sisters, Jess and Lisa Origliasso began working in show business at the age of five. The Veronicas' new single "If You Love Someone" has entered at #5 on the ARIA Singles Chart. Their ARIA #1, double platinum single "You Ruin Me" continues to impact charts around the globe, recently debuting at #8 on the UK Singles Chart.


Sydney DJ and producer Timmy Trumpet recently took out the top spot in the 2015 inthemix50 poll of Australia's favourite
DJs and producers. Timmy's win comes after the biggest 12 months of his career, with his Savage collaboration "Freaks" going a whopping five times platinum in Australia and reaching #3 on the ARIA Singles Chart, making it the highest selling single in label Ministry of Sound's history! Timmy's last three singles have all reached the #1 spot on the ARIA Club Chart and he's just returned from a massive sold out tour of Europe. Timmy has just released his latest single "Toca", a collaboration with US DJ/producer Carnage, and he'll be sure to get the crowd jumping at his SLIMEFEST debut with his DJing and live trumpet playing!


With an appetite for success bigger than a rampaging Godzilla, Savage is breaking all the dance music rules. Who else dominated the airwaves and hung two quadruple platinum selling singles plaques on their wall in 2014?
