Can I ask you, how do ratings work? Like I know the season 10 finale had the lowest ratings of all of them (esp s7) but does that mean fewer people watched it? so like it was because the episodes leading up to the finale were bad, so more people didnt watch the finale? or is it some sort of qualitative measure of how good (or bad) the finale was..? I mean in both cases, it was pretty much the worst finale ever but how do the ratings show that exactly? sorry for the loong question!!
AWESOME. LET ME EXPLAIN TO YOU HOW RATINGS WORK
OKAY SO, TV RATINGS (or Nielsen Ratings) ARE ESSENTIALLY A WAY TO MEASURE THE AUDIENCE.
THERE ARE DEVICES INSTALLED IN SELECTED HOMES THAT MEASURE THE VIEWING HABITS OF THE PEOPLE LIVING IN IT–LIKE, WHAT CHANNEL THEY’RE ON; IF THEY’RE STICKING THROUGHOUT THE SHOW OR SWITCHING CHANNELS, ETC.
THE SELECTED HOUSEHOLDS WILL THEN REPRESENT THE MASS AUDIENCE.
NOW, THESE RATINGS ARE USUALLY REPORTED AS “RATINGS/SHARE”
HERE ARE THE RATINGS DURING SUPERNATURAL’S SEASON 10 FINALE
THE “RATING” IS THE ESTIMATED PERCENTAGE OF THE VIEWERS IN A HOUSEHOLD WHO ARE TUNED IN TO A PARTICULAR SHOW ON THE AVERAGE MINUTE
THE “SHARE” IS THE ESTIMATED PERCENTAGE OF HOUSEHOLDS (OR PEOPLE) WHO ARE USING THE TV TO TUNE INAT A SPECIFIC AREA,AT A SPECIFIC TIME
THE SUPERNATURAL SEASON 10 FINALE RECEIVED A 0.7/2 RATING (which is low compared to other shows obviously), SO THIS MEANS THAT OUT OF ALL THE HOUSEHOLDS WITH A TV, 0.7% WERE TUNED IN TO WATCH THE SUPERNATURAL FINALE, AND OUT OF THE ALL THE HOUSEHOLDS USING THEIR TV AT 9PM, 2% WERE TUNED IN TO SUPERNATURAL.
NOW, 0.7/2 RATING IS ACTUALLY NOT BAD FOR A CW SHOW, ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THAT ‘SUPERNATURAL’ DIDN’T HAVE ‘ARROW’ AS A LEAD-IN. (Lead-ins help carry over the audience to the next show) AND WE ALSO HAVE TO FACTOR IN THE FACT THAT IT HAS SWITCHED TIMESLOTS WITHIN THE SEASON.
BUT, THE SEASON 9 FINALE HAD A 1.1 RATING, AND NO EPISODE IN SEASON 9 HAD A RATING BELOW 0.8% (when rounded off).
SO THE LOSS OF AUDIENCE COULD BE BECAUSE OF THE SHOW’S DOWNWARD SPIRAL, OR IT COULD BE BECAUSE THE SHOWS THAT IT’S UP AGAINST, ARE MORE FORMIDABLE COMPETITORS.
TL;DR NIELSEN RATINGS BASICALLY DETERMINE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO WATCH A PARTICULAR SHOW. THIS INFORMATION IS CRUCIAL TO THE NETWORK AND ADVERTISERS, WHICH IS WHY THIS CAN MAKE OR BREAK A TV SHOW. ADVERTISERS FIND OUT WHEN AND WHERE TO PUT THEIR ADS; AND NETWORKS FIND OUT WHICH SHOW TO PICK UP OR DROP. IT’S NOT A QUALITATIVE MEASURE OF HOW GOOD OR BAD A PARTICULAR SHOW IS–SO FAR, THAT’S STILL RELATIVE.
BECAUSE SEASON 9 WAS PRETTY BIG IN TERMS OF RATINGS, BUT IT WAS STILL CRAP
Please anon effort to follow mo silang lahat ha? Nakausap ko na dito yung iba tapos yung mga dinagdag ko di ko pa nakakausap pero nakikita ko sila lagi sa dash, dinagdag ko narin yung mga idol ko. Sorry sa mga nakalimutan ko saka nga pala anon dagdag mo narin yung mga maglalike neto. Thanks!
Natasha's training is a lot like Bruce's irradiation or Captain's war history. Aspects may change, and the finite details may be altered, but any adaption is still beholden to the comic book roots established generations ago. Whedon didn't invent Natasha's backstory, you're just ignorant of the history of the character.
In a way, I'm very glad that Delphine broke up with Cosima. I think it shows a vast improvement in her character, her character has a purpose now and doesn't just exist to be the cute French gf of Cosima's who fucks up sometimes. I like the anguish between them as much as it hurts, because it shows a clear devotion of Delphine's love for Cosima. When I think of S1 and S2, Delphine seemed like a filler, someone who gets yelled at and kisses Cosima every now and then. Now Delphine has power (pt 1)
(Pt 2) and she’s using that power well. Her, Sarah, and Paul seems to me to be the only ones who are completely invested in keeping the Leda clones safe. A lot of people are saying Delphine is turning into Rachel, but I don’t buy it. Rachel was mean and horrible because she just was. She did things because she could. Delphine is driven by her love for Cosima and her sisters. She stopped Helsinki ffs! As much as I want cophine back together, I want Cosima to realise she’s the one who fucked up.
I honestly have nothing to add to this, this is wonderful this message makes me smile, I agree 1000000% with all of it :D
sometimes when dan starts rambling about the universe and existentialism to a point where phil can hear him start to panic, phil grabs his hand and just holds it and dan sort of just pauses and looks at him and phil squeezes his hand before they hug and dan just mumbles a ‘thank you’ and they smile at each other before phil just continues to let him talk and listen with their hands still clasped together
AMANDA DID U HAVE TO GO THERE. This is the hardest question I’ve ever been asked in my LIFE. ok…here we go…
“I’m an addict,” confesses Hardy, “which means if you tell me I can’t do something I’ll do it. If I tell myself I want to do something, however hard or grueling it might be, I’ll do it. Even if it terrifies me. You’ve got to be an absolute fucking nutcase to pursue a career in acting,” he continues. “Either that or you need to really believe in what you’re doing. Everyone who said I’d never make it gave me the self-belief.”
“Surviving is one thing. You can get through, you can white-knuckle. You can do the bare minimum. But there comes a time when life stops rewarding potential. If you want to participate in a certain level in anything, you cannot just turn up and be respected.”
You know what? life is a risk. i can fuck off and look stupid, and have a character that’s not successful. but then you do it again; you can’t win a fight unless you’ve been knocked out. you don’t know what it’s like to lose until you know what it’s like to win; you don’t know what it’s like to win until you lose, and then it doesn’t matter. the investigation is all that matters, and the journey.
“There are two types of acting: There’s convincing and not convincing. That’s it, right? And so, if you are going to convince people, then put it in the real world. Can you get your passport back? If you needed to get your passport back to get out of a country that you were in danger in, can you do that? Because you will need that skill. And that’s how your character is going to need to be convincing. So number one: Can you hustle? In the real world, have you got the asset to get whatever it is that you need by any means necessary without putting your hands on somebody? Number two: camouflage. Can you dress yourself up to look like somebody that you’re not? Can you speak another language? Can you do the hustle but in different languages? That’s it. And you will be judged.”
“A great man is largely forgotten by the public. He doesn’t stand on top of a mountain waving a flag saying, “Look at me—I’m a great man.” A great man often disappears into the ether. Hardly anyone notices that he was even there, apart from his family and close friends. He was reliable. He showed up. He was there. He was useful where he could be. He made mistakes. Tried to make better of those mistakes. Doesn’t mean you have to cure cancer or understand the theory of relativity. It’s not necessarily as rock-and-roll or as cool as you might think. Part of being a great man is accepting that. To dare to be average and normal is actually a pathway to becoming a great man. To have more humility. To accept responsibility more. To just get on with what’s in front of your face. And to leave no fucking indelible mark of your ever being here, apart from the fact that you were there for your family to the best of your ability. It’s not an easy task. I’ll probably fuck it up.”
HI CUTIE PATOOTIE! I know you have been feeling down but I've followed you for a while now and I adore your blog and I promise things will start looking up and I love you so just smile babes you got this ^.^
sometimes I get really sad thinking about Phan because nobody has ever loved me like that. even if Phan isn't real, I've still never had a connection with someone the way Dan & Phil do. I've never had a real best friend. And I never will and I'm really lonely. I ship Phan so much and I want them to be together so badly but I also feel like if they ever came out, I would be devastated & miserable knowing that Phan is real but my dreams are not real. idk sorry sad.
aww buddy, it’s okay! but you never know, you know? you’ll eventually meet someone who you’ll have that special connection with so just wait and hang in there and enjoy life. make new friends and talk more to your current friends bc you might have even met that person already but you just don’t know it. come off anon and i can be your best friend ahaha. you have so much to look forward to still and don’t forget it took dan 18 years to find phil. don’t be too hasty.
bellarke? for the ship thing? ((a very obvious one but i mean it has to be done))
it had to be done (BELLARKE REFERENCES YAY)
who takes longer showers?
clarke omfg but she mostly does it so bellamy has no choice but to join her if he wants any hot water
how do they make up after a fight?
since they’re both so stubborn it takes them FOREVER to actually make up (one time they didn’t speak for a whole day bc they got into a fight over the best way to cook grilled cheese) but usually one of them leaves the other a cute little note and does
who prefers rain and who prefers sun?
clarke is literally the worst morning person so whenever the sun peeks through the blinds she’ll unleash a string of v creative curses and shove the pillow over her face but bellamy is such a morning person it’s actually slightly terrifying
what’s their favorite place to go together?
target!! they’ll go for like two things and end up with a full cart by the time they reach checkout
who’s more likely to be voted prom king/queen?
both of em are voted prom king/queen because they’re the fucking golden couple
do they celebrate anniversaries, etc.?
bellamy goes all fucking out for anniversaries, like he’s booked reservations months in advance, etc. since he puts so much effort into it, clarke stresses so much over what to get him as a gift so she ends up getting super into it and ugh cuties
who’d pressure the other into singing karaoke?
bellamy always ends up singing when he’s drunk and he always tries to get clarke to singwith him but she’ll just roll her eyes and sling his arm over her shoulder because that’s when she knows it’s time to go home
what’s their nightly routine?
they don’t really have one since clarke usually works the graveyard shift, but bellamy will leave her whatever he made for dinner out on the counter and then she’ll crawl into bed after eating like half of it and just snuggle into bellamy’s back. when she’s not working, they kinda do everything together, ya know? like clarke will wrap her arms around his back when he’s cooking and then they’ll just cuddle on the couch and make out for like three hours and then clarke will rest her head on bellamy’s chest and he’ll run his hands through her hair till she gets sleepy and he’ll pull her off to bed and wow this got away from me
who’s more likely to burn dinner?
clarke can’t cook for shit but sometimes she tries to make bellamy dinner when he works late and she’s not on the night shift, and he always eats it, burnt edges and all
I'm the anon who is reading Denise's autobiography and there's bit in it were Denise says Matty is a "third parent" to Louis and it's so endearing, especially the part when Matty tells Louis never to talk to Denise in that tone again! Also he is very protective over Denise! You should read it really interesting and insightful!
