Loving Jericho: Karen
Here is how I planned to begin this post:
Hello Karen. I don't know you but I think we could get along. I love your posts at tvbythenumbers because you rise above the gloom and doom. I'm so sick of all the naysayers. People said the Nuts couldn't save Jericho yet here we are.
Thank you for your persistence. Keep up the good work.
The Internet is a big place but Karen's passion sparked something inside me so I went in search of her. Not easy. It took a few hours but I did find her and she has responded to my email so I now do know who she is.
The following are just a few of Karen's comments that caught my eye:
"No the answer is this: If one little show, Jericho, can prove the nielsen rating system is flawed, down goes the monopoly. It’s really that simple.
nielsen numbers flip flop all over
online buzz remains consistent and continues to grow.
You tell me what’s going on."
"Someone posted today on how hers was a Nielsen family but her ex-husband (now) controlled the remote, switching constantly between sports channels and she had to watch her programs at other houses. How often are Nielsen views actually controlled by one member? But it is moot. I will be told that Nielsen’s are the only measures and that’s just how it is.
BTW, the ratings dip two Tuesdays apart. Weren’t those BOTH election Tuesdays? Is that suspicious at all looking at the bounce? It seems to me *something* is affecting them other than disinterest."
Be sure to read more of Karen's comments and you'll be seeing her here on JM soon. Thank you Karen.
