Well, apparantly the Neilson Rating system does not look at what shows people enjoy, but what shows people watch the ads in. so seeing as how The Cape is most likely streamed/netflix'd most of the time (It's on Monday evenings. Not the best time slot haha) people are not watching the ads meaning... Well... The show gets CHOPPED
I don't know how it normally works -- I mean, I know Nielson families get devices attached to their TVs to record what they watch, but I don't know any specifics -- but a year or two ago, I was one of the extra people they surveyed for sweeps week. They sent me a booklet (and five dollars, cash, through the mail O.o) and I wrote down what I watched at what times. There was also a section in the back for comments, where they encouraged you to write down anything else you thought they might like to know about your viewing habits. At that time, I was still sometimes watching Bones
online, since I can't get the channel it actually airs on, and I did make a note of that.
On the other hand, probably many people are watching The Cape
through the NBC site, anyway, so they should know exactly how often it's been watched there. If they don't take that into account, then they're just being silly.
That's what I like about it. V_V I have a feeling the 'climax' of the season will be Vince having to turn against the Carnival.
Yeah, me, too. And that's one of the things that killed Heroes
, in my opinion -- suddenly it wasn't enough for people to be able to pick up others' thoughts with effort. They had to be able to sneak into people's minds, mess with their subconscious thoughts, and generally just take them over. It was much more interesting when it was difficult and they were all just struggling to figure out what the heck was going on. *sigh*
