This report says "Al Hurra makes slow gains in Arab world." A Washington DC correspondent for one of the three networks tells me that the Nielson report merely asked whether "you have seen any of Al-Hurra in the last week." Apparently, the Nielson researchers did not know that Arabs have remote control devices, and know how to use them. Arabs also know how to channel surf. So if, while you have been channel surfing, you came across Al-Hurra, you qualified as a viewer in this study.
