In addition, households are counted multiple times for a TV station depending on how many networks are carried on that station.

Group Overlap- When two broadcast ownership groups are compared to determine the TV market overlap of one group or the other. All channels, and subchannels, are counted for total duplicated households since competition is measured across total channels.
