Welcome to the 21st century, Nielsen.
Now, maybe it's time for me to get one of them Twitters...
They need to add other things like dvr to the overall rating system.
Yeah, but at least this is slight progress. For them, slight progress = huge step forward.
Nielsen company knocked on my door 3 years ago and interviewed my family for a box. The funny thing was that they said how everything was random and the lady stressed that the randomness was the key to it being fair, but the irony was that after her lengthy interviews she said we didn't fit what the company was looking for? Ummm....someone explain to me what's random about choosing what u want and discarding others that don't fit that mold.
At that time I was living with my aunt and uncle and we were all over 21. We had two TV's in the house but I guess we weren't the right demos. Had we been chosen we would have had to sign confidentiality papers while the boxes were in our homes. After that experience I am now very skeptical of all things "Nielsen".
I'd never even heard about those mythical boxes until recent years. We got one of those TV log booklet thingies in the mail. I basically filled it out in advance with the shows I watch and left it sit until it was time to mail it out.
The fact that they are still relying on snail mail for some of their ratings which basically gives them the ratings for a show 7-8 days after it airs is ridiculous in and of itself.
I've never heard of them using mail for their data. I've only heard of the boxes.
