basically, higher the number the better the rating and better for the show.

Seems to be doing well as a sci-fi show...But compared putting all the shows(of all genres)together, it's not good... :(

Just wondering, but shouldn't Heroes and Lost be in there? I'm certainly not complaining they're not lol

I think Heroes and Lost go into the "drama" category.

Its good but look at what its being compared to. I've firmly held that if KR was on a friday or saturday night it would do well. It can't survive on a Wed night prime time slot.

3rd is place is awesome. I'm beginning to think people are just being greedy here. Look at the shows it's beaten there, Smallville, Jericho, Supernatural etc. I'm shocked that KR can even get that high in this day and age.

1st place will never happen.

I think what you have to remember with Knight Rider is, TOS in the 80's is a generation away now, so that means the show picking up a new genertaion as it can't just depend on it's ols fan base.

To this genration Knight Rider is maybe a new show, so it needs time to build on that, 5 episodes for the reboot is not really a fair chance Imho, it needs a second season to make or break.

I'd say that's pretty damn awesome; Look at all the quality shows falling behind KR ratings - Supernatural, for instance. Even in Olympics third place is worth a medal :good:

Also what tv companies have to remember is people are watching online etc, even Iligaly(Which I am not supporting and please don't start talking about how to.. I'm just using it as a point)

The thing is viewing habits of shows have changed considerably other time, not so many people will sit down and watch something as it's broadcast as they used to.

So maybe it's time for a diffrent approch to rattings.. Admitadly I don't know how they'd do that, but something will have to change sooner or later. :kittside:

I agree. Maybe TV companies should analyse the figures of non-tv usage. To get a true count of how many viewers they get, the company would need to save the IP address' of the viewers and see how many different IP's they get. Admittedly, the only flaw with this is the fact that some homes have multiple pc's/laptops(notebooks) etc. Each will have their own IP if on broadband as they stay constant. I see this as a good way to view figures & popularity, but they would need a filter to save the IP address once and not have the same IP more than once. I only say this incase some people re-watch the show, as some of us do. This may be expensive software to introduce, but it would be worthwhile as it would definately start a trend of monitoring a new medium other than TV. Also, they could apply this software to all shows they broadcast.
Prime examples of this type of monitoring are already available. Lynda414's vote on the FLAG website for her Fanfic (highly recommended read by the way) & the petition to save KR. Both of these save IP addresses so they don't have the same person repeating themselves from the same terminal.

I know I've rambled on & on, but does this make sense to you guys?

Drifty, you're just awesome. *hugs* Who did you vote for?

On the subject of Neilson boxes, I also agree that they are outdated. Especially for those of us who are sci-fi fans, we like more advanced ways of enjoying our media. I personally am much more comfortable watching all my shows on my computer and leaving the TV on Noggin and the Classical Music station for the kids. The only show in recent memory that I have watched on the TV was Knight Rider. I felt that I should do my part and sit through commercials, even though I can't pause and rewind when Artemis starts screaming "Car! Car!" at the screen.

For me, online viewing is much more preferable, even if I have to sit through ads on there too.

I think, with the changeover to digital TV signalling, that we'll see better monitoring. From what I understand, channels will be able to send and receive data, similar to an internet connection - the idea was to introduce interactivity into TV viewing sessions, to some extent, but with this technology we'll probably also get a more accurate representation of who is watching what (via server-side applications that monitor small pings from active viewers).

I'm not sure how long this will take, but I think that Neilsen's days are numbered, in the face of new technology.

And I doubt it ever will be. Which is a shame as I wish there was a way "we" could show that there are people watching.

Someone at nbc has to notice that there are people watching it on the internet and writing about it, also overseas. So what can i say. And we only had the pilot on our network.
