Data from telemetric television audience panels are invaluable for commercial and scientific television reseanch. For the study of most research questions, however, it is necessary to request additional information from the panel participants. Such interventions can only be permitted if they do not threaten the validity of the telemetric data. This study investigates whether a questionnaire intervention disrupts the viewing behavior of a television audience panel. The results indicate that, on t...

Realizing that worldwide longitudinal television research has exclusively been based on short sequences of cross-sectional data, it is argued that future developmental television research should use people-meter data in combination with time-series methods. To support this claim, several issues are investigated. It is demonstrated how telemetric TV data, which are collected continuously in all industrialized countries, can be used not only to validate findings based on cross-sectional data but a...

In this study, long-term trends in joint parent-child television viewing are taken as prototype for developmental changes of the parent-child relationship during adolescence. To describe and compare trends of television coviewing in different configurations of family members, trajectories of daily television viewing, tmeasured with Nielsen-type people meters over a time period of three years, were analyzed using time series methods. The findings show the transferability of hypotheses about gener...

This study tests the validity of two competing models of family coviewing. Trajectories of daily television viewing measured with people meters over a 3‐year period were analyzed using time‐series methods. The findings show that current models of coviewing are in need of refinement. The proposed expansion by a longitudinal perspective allows for differential predictions about age‐related trends in adolescent viewing behavior in relation to parental coviewing patterns.

Starting with a critical discussion of the consensus reached concerning the structure of second language competence, the unitary competence hypothesis as advocated especially by Oller (1976) is then confronted with new evidence supporting a multidimensional model of foreign language ability. In order to question the plausibility of the general (unitary) factor hypothesis, its central claim, that of universal validity, is put to the test. This claim implies at least two assumptions: a) the invari...
