It looks like Arrested Development is going to be cancelled.

I want to describe how disappointing and upsetting this is, and how America apparently doesn't understand what good television is, but I don't know if there's a point anymore. I'm disappointed in my fellow couch potatoes. Shame on you, all of you!

Enjoy the drivel you've brought upon yourselves!

How very interesting... Not a propos your post, but the article you linked. Go read it again. Now, scroll halfway down. There! Right below the picture. The Washington Post notes that you've blogged about the article!

First time I've noticed this. Perhaps I'm just daft. Quite possible that I the name of your blog in the middle of a Post article caught my eye. But nonetheless! You've made a cameo on the Washington Post website.

That's all. I'm back to rot my brain with some more TV. (Hah! I wish. Though the article does make me feel better about spending Sunday night editing papers.)

How about that! Thanks for the tip-off, Gus. And hooray for me having such a strange eye-catching name for my blog!

Editing papers is far more productive than letting your brain rot on the telly... which is pretty much what I do every night :D

Don't blame everyone. Just the damn Nielsen families.

Or the Nielsens themselves, since they clearly don't know how to pick out intelligent viewers for their ratings.

I hope they'll soon replace the Nielsen ratings with some way of actually seeing what people watch (rather than relying to some extent on self-reporting, which is hopelessly skewed). They should just ask people if they're willing to have their DVR recording habits sent anonymously to a ratings agency. Then we'll know what people ACTUALLY watch, and we'll have a much larger sample. We should totally change it to that.
