Sure they wouldn't have specific demographic information (unless people volunteered it), but they would have a much greater level of information of viewership and habits.

Wouldn't this be allowed as long as the info was anonymous? Just seems too easy.
Yeah that would cross a line of privacy that I'm sure would never get through the courts. As much sense as it makes, it just can't be done.
