Is this by owner of the household or something? Given I'm 16, and watch pretty much every sport... Would that count as my 45 year old dad watching?

Sports are the most difficult ratings to track. Most people watch TV shows in small groups, but watch sports as a large group. The Neilson ratings do not factor that in. Also, tons of people go to bars, pubs, and places like that to watch sports. Neilson ratings do not account for that either.
