    Not only is the notebook system "crap," Nielsen's other system is also crap.

    To have one of their meters installed, it takes workmen at your house for a couple of weeks. They also drill into your tv and electronics equipment.

    Ask yourself what kind of people would be okay with this.

    Sorta skews the sample, don'tcha think?

    But that's the monopoly we have right now.


    leo: Watch the Super Bowl!

    Seriously, if you believe in good journalism, on ESPN, watch only 'Outside the Lines.'

    Actually, if you're by the northern border, watch as much CBC as you can. Skews the hell out of the curb.
    When the Wings were in successful Stanley Cup mode, the local station that carried the game would trumpet that it had like a 40 share...
    What it didnt say is that the 40 share was because Nielsen didnt measure the CBC and everyone watched the playoffs on Channel 9.... if they counted the CBC, the share would have dropped to like a 15...

    I actually do my part to help the ratings of both Blue's Clues and the Backyardigans whenever I can.

    Luggie, yes the ratings guys came in and installed equipment which is attached to my TV, DVD player and VCR, yet why would I have a concern about that? Let Neilsen find out how many movies I watch or how much PlayStation I play. It makes little difference to me if they know.

    I didn't say you had to watch it. Just write it down. ;)
  9. Yes, watch my show. One of the few decent kids' shows that adults can sit through.

    Other suggestions:

    Outside the Lines
    1 vs. 100 (hey, I like it, and no one else does...)
    any show with Giada on the Food Network (watch this as much as possible, so they'll show her more)

    Every NHL game you possible can.

    That way, Bettman knows which American to personally thank for watching hockey.
