    Good news - I think. I still don't like the fact that Friends replays did somewhat better. On the other hand, I consider the fact that the viewership went up from the starting figures a very good omen.

    I think the trend is usually the number decreases after the premiere, but since there wasn't a lot of upfront promotion prompting newbies to tune in, maybe it will be the opposite, and they'll build on word-of-mouth. (lord knows CBS isn't going to help us out)

    I just hope people won't be put off by the fact the show can be a little hard to follow in the early episode as there are so many teams.

    Please stick with the show folks, it's so worth it.

    All this talk is preaching to the choir: likely >90% of this board's readers have already been won over by the show. [If not, where are the negative posts?] A '7 degrees of separation email based campaign' is, however, well within our reach and affordable, if not essentially free to those already subscribe or having access to the internet.

    But again how many of them have neilson boxes?

    I'd like to know how TPTB came up with the numbers for neilson ratings and if that is the only way networks determine who is watching what.

    Neilsen ratings are reported overnight. A single Neilsen box represents (I forget the exact number), around 103,000 homes. Neilsen families are not allowed to tell anyone they are Neilsen families, and have to be careful about not leaving the TV on, etc.

    It's currently the only way the networks have of getting viewer data, although the rise in TiVo sets has helped, because TiVo can report who's recorded which shows, and even can tell who has rewound to watch a particular segment multiple times.

    Why can't they tell people they have Nielsen boxes?
