the internet kills my questions…

Everytime I think I have a great question to post and ponder, I google it and find that it’s already been asked, already been answered. In this case, i was wondering what the impact of tivo is on tv ratings… for example, if we record a show on a chance that we *might* like it, is that being represented as an active viewer? The answer – a resounding no. Ratings are based on Nielsen polls, using a technique called statistical sampling to rate the shows. So what I watch or fail to watch makes no difference on the bigger picture (unless i sign up for the Nielsen poll or get randomly selected for statistical input).

Sigh… this makes me want to blog even less.
