Is possible use the ADL 5902 to detect AM signals?

I need measure the RF power of one analog television transmitter  ,this transmitter , use Am modulation's and therefore is difficult obtain a stable signal. When I  use,  color bars  100% as input signal , the relation between the RMS power and peak power is : Ppeak = 2,2 Prms, the dc voltage output from RF detector is stable with the peak power( read from the transmitter's wattmeter ) . I used and calculated this equation and works good , but when I use real time video as input signal,  the voltage is variable and is impossible obtain the slope and intercept.   

Is possible use this RF detector for my application?
