A moments appreciation for the lack of “They’re having a panic attack so I’m going to kiss them to stop them breathing.” and instead having a realistic panic attack and a realistic way of dealing with it.
Daily reminder that you watching any given show on TV doesn’t matter at all, no one is counting your view unless you have a Nielsen box in your household.
Got one of these bad boys?
Then your television view DOES NOT MATTER. No one is counting what you watch. You do not affect ratings.
How do ratings work?
Basically like several thousand families have these boxes attached to their TVs. These people are a sample group and represent all of the country! Yeah, just several thousand families. These families each represent like… thousands of families “just like them.” Ratings are estimated figures based ONLY ON NIELSEN FAMILIES.
So. Your view on television doesn’t matter. At all.
Support a show in different ways but ratings are not it. I’m sure people pay attention to online chatter, trends in social media, views on legitimate videos, etc… So, y’know. Do that stuff. Spend money on the content. Whatev.
This is mostly for the SU crowd but it applies to literally every show ya’ll like.
“Betty and I have been next-door neighbors since we were four. We’ve always gone to the same school, been in the same class.
I remember in the 2nd grade, I was having trouble reading and my teacher Mrs. Gribrock told my mom and dad that I should stay back a year to get caught up. Betty was so against us not being in the same grade that she took it upon herself to tutor me every single day.”
