Nielsen Ratings

Nathan and I were discussing TV ratings, now that he works in TV, and I was telling him that I'd never met anyone who grew up in a Nielsen home. He said he hadn't either.

So I decided to blog about it. Did you grow up in a Nielsen home? Do you know someone who did? Did you have to journal your TV activity or did you use the tracking box/device?

Tell me more... because, frankly, I'm not sure I believe you even exist.

We were picked to do that once, and we did (probably at my insistence). But it was only for a short time, like a week, or two weeks, or a month. Definitely not more than a month. And it was only the paper version, not the set meter stuff.

I was in a band in college with a guy who grew up in a "Nielsen House." They had a little box on top of their tv that tracked what they watched. I don't really know much more than that but I guess they exist....

I was always wanting to be a Nielsen house, but maybe we watched too much TV and rather indiscriminately (wow, that's a big word for me!), so they probably knew we would screw up the system. But then again, maybe they weren't just monitoring what was on TV...

I'm a Nielson house. I wield such power! Such control! And a pen! Because I have to mark what I write using the log. -Eliza
