Nielsen announced the award at the New York Auto Show currently underway. Each award is based on the findings of TV brand effect, including a survey of about five million people.

For the automotive award, points were given on likeability and brand awareness, and viewer appeal. Speaking about the award, Mark Sneathen, managing director of Nielsen Automotive, said:

“When you create an emotion in someone’s brain, that’s the way to encode a memory. You can create emotional storylines with humor, with sadness [and] with joy. I think ‘Wisdom’ really does connect on an emotional level.
