I almost always watch a good bit of MSNBC and the Daily Show. Mostly on DVR though. I wonder how that works.

Leave it on CSPAN. I hear it's so boring even the Neilson monitor falls asleep.

I have no idea. I would think they'd have to account for high tech DVR people. (I still have a VCR)

IMO best sitcom on TV now is The Big Bang Theory.

I also like The Office. Those are two shows my family watches every week.

There's still ongoing debate as to whether they actually tabulate DVR reliably or not. They say they do.

I'm surprised that cable companies don't keep a log through digital boxes these days. You'd think they could do it with today's technology. That would save Nielsen a lot of work.

I would get a big kick out of it if they ever invited me. We only get network channels.

Neilson is the rating system, so it means that they will be monitoring what they watch to help determine how many households are watching what shows/channels to determine that shows/channels rating

Aww, that IS a good thing. Those clowns blow up more TV's hooking up their stuff than you want to know.

My parents have been a neilsen household. They had this like notepad thing to pencil what they watched in.

Most of the mainstream shows have plenty of support. Any help with Sci-Fi would be great.
Especially Dr. Who.

Is there a way to give a show negative ratings? If possible, do that to TNA Impact.
