The Nielsen-backed Council for Research Excellence has found that the vast majority of people watching prime-time TV are not using social media at the same time. Only 16.1% of viewers said they took part in "second screening" through mobile devices and laptops, with 11.4% posting to Facebook and 3.3% to Twitter. Also, social media prompted just 6.8% of respondents to check out a new show.
