I'm tired of losing good shows. How about you?

    Looking at the bloodbath of TV cancellations and the glut of awful reality shows I think it is time we revolted against the Nielsen Ratings System. Apparently they only choose the most cattle like families for their group of 5000 people that determine what stays on. Frankly I don't believe in the accuracy. They certainly do not reflect the shows that are popular on a site like this one. The networks only care about advertising revenue based on artificial demographics. The only way to effect them is to give the sponsors the idea that you are helping them. Make the corporations who advertise insist that the shows return or they will take their ad dollar elsewhere. If the Nielsen system is debunked maybe the public can be in charge of the fate of the shows we invest ourselves in. Pass it on.
