    Why do we always get left out?

    And, yeah, need a list of which color means what.

      of color is a separate media market; it's just a graphic we grabbed off the web that looks like some random nerd made by hand (there are very few media market maps out there... Nielsen doesn't publish them, and they're very protective of that data), but I assume whoever made it just chose colors based on not having two markets next to each other being the same color.

      A legend probably wouldn't be too useful because the colors get repeated so many times; for instance, on this map, light pink could mean Medford, Santa Barbara, San Angelo, Rapid City, Quincy, Montgomery, Charlotte, Lexington, Harrisonburg, or Albany!

        I've never been good at reading charts and graphs---seems to be a brain deficiency.  I try to make sense such things, but my brain just goes BOING! and stops working.

        Happy to hear this chart wasn't meant to be studied in depth. Will stop blaming myself.
